Lisa's ArtySoulSisters Sketchbook Page

Our traveling ArtySoulSisters sketchbook reached me this past week from Mim in MA. I am to make a page for Lisa and then send the book on to Suki, who will add a page and then only two more pages needed from Kate and Caroline for this book to make it back to Lisa! It already is chock full of awesome art from many other artists in this group. And if you want to see more go to our blog at ArtySoulSisters! and scroll backwards to see all the incredible pages for all the wonderful books and their progress! This is a felted velvet and wool butterfly surrounded by variegated ribbon yarn, embellished with beads and stick on glass thingies that shine! The butterfly is on a scrapbook page of paper.
This is the back, which I left bare to see. Not so sturdy maybe this way, but interesting to
each prick of a needle that was used to adhere the fabric to the paper! I hope Lisa Likes It! and
Happy Cactus Monday!
Almost forgot.
Let the needles of my felting machine
surfice for needles on a cactus today
