be brave

This was a piece I started in answer to a challenge of sorts. Jenny Doh invited her readers to send in their ‘moo’ cards to be included in a post on her blog, Crescendoh.

       ‘If you would like to decorate your MOO card or incorporate it into a larger piece of art, you are encouraged but not required to do so’

But I was having trouble. It was going slowly and it just wasn’t coming out the way I wanted. As soon as I sent off my ‘plain’ card, this just seemed to come together like magic. I think it was saying it needed to stay here in my studio as a reminder to me!

Heat Carved Stamps (a la alisa burke)

I think I like the finished product, just not so sure I like the process.

Look what came in the mail today!

I’m touched! I’m thrilled! I’m ecstatic!

This is from my favorite aspiring fabric artist, Brooke Alexander.

Take note of the composition, the choice and combination of color and pattern. The texture derived from the use of raw edges and stitching! You can’t teach that! You either have it or you don’t, and she’s definitely got it!

I can’t wait to see what great things she does in the future! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU, Brooke. I am so proud to be a recipient of an original ‘Brooke Alexander’!
