I also drew a few others waiting their turn for the doctor to call them in.
When I got home I got my paints out and painted fabric for the background of my
flower wall hanging.
I love that the paint on the table is so pretty. I haven't cleaned it up either. I may just leave it. Then I called my neighbor friend, Donna, over to see what I had done.
Donna is a painter and knows about colors.
She showed me how my green stems were getting lost
in the green background I had painted. How it needed more orange
out more. (I think she said orange...she told me how to look at the color wheel to
find complimentary colors. I need to do that).
I just painted by the seat of my pants. Blue for sky, green for earth,
Without giving any thought to how it would go with the flowers.
But I get what she is saying and will play around with it
and see if I can fix this.
Then I got this delightful trade
from Lynette today in the mail.
She made this using real flowers and leaves.
Isn't it pretty?
I just love it.
So glad we traded too.
which she folded to hold it.
I recently asked friend Marianne to trade ATCs with me. She had one on her blog that looked very California Hippie and I felt it was calling out to me. So I asked for it. Since I was in the mode of making mandala-like fiber art and Marianne is the Queen of Mandalas, I whipped up this little ATC sized wool and lace felted mandala (like) ATC for Marianne. The second picture is the back of the ATC. I like how the felted fibers show through to the other side in a more pastel way and how the red metallic threads from my bobbin brighten up the back.
