NoBo First Friday Show

Tweet tweet!
Twitter? No.
Bluebirds? Yes!
Spring is right around the corner and my mind goes to spring! The thought of warm breezes and the sounds of birds chirping away!

In preparation for the NoBo First Friday Show tomorrow night, I’ve been working away on various forms of 2 and 3 dimensional collage.  Three bluebird canvases will be there with acrylic, ink, fabric, paper and embroidery! Here are a couple detail photos …

In addition, I’ve met a clothing designer named Melissa Bell who has generously given me  scraps of her  fabric!  From those, I’m making collage animals by combining her fabrics with mine and adding embroidery.  Each animal is from my original design.

What can I say? Sun was pouring through my Southern exposure drawing room window as the ideas fluttered about like the butterfly on the stamp.  I really like how this one turned out!

The back of this postcard is fun to trace the stitching tracks!
