The leaves have been coming down in great quantities, apparently I'm still in leaf mode. (Although at the moment they are being snowed on...) For this design, I made a silkscreen with a negative image on it. Then I did some stitching on it, but I still wasn't happy with it. I decided to try playing with water soluble oil pastels, which was fun. I colored the background and the leaves, then blended them with a wet paintbrush. The first picture is just the silkscreen.
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing. After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now starting to design kits and patterns Some of these are now available from Keepsake Quilting also. I teach classes at a local quilt shop, The Material Girls, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
