I was reading Kim's blog and saw this message so I took her advice and did my own page and another too. The idea actually came from Connie at Dirty Foot Prints Studio. Sometimes to make art you have to shut everything else off.
I had done this background a long time ago. It was so rich that I did not know how to use it. Then I found this image in the right colors and added some panpastel for shading and it came to life
The theme of this book is Love and all its forms. Here I made fabric paper by sewing strips of fabric to watercolor paper and then added an image and trim. I see this as mother daughter love and also love of reading.
Here I use my favorite picture of Sarah and I and a few words. The background is done with Panpastels and some stamping.
I needed to make something for my church's auction so I took some stitched paper I had made previously and made postcards. These are really fun to make
