Flowered Window

This painting is 4" x 6"

Purple Marie

This ATC card was made for a swap with my Yahoo group.  The challenge was to make a card using color combos that we don't usually use.  I used various shades of purple and blue watercolor to color some thin paper.  After it dried, I crumpled it up and pasted it on the card, using a brayer to press lots of folds into the design.    The butterfly is embossed and the pansy is a dried, pressed flower.

Pink Geraniums

I am not very happy with the flowers; but I think I made some progress with leaves and the basket.  I really love geraniums!

Another Sunflower

This Artist Trading Card is also for the Yahoo swap.


This is a 2-1/2 inch by 3-1/2 inch Artist Trading Card made for a Yahoo group trade.


This is our latest class painting.  She was not really a subject that I wanted to paint.  But I did learn some things.  I added irridescent medium to my paint before painting her shoes and beads. 
The painting is 17" X 22"

Dress Challenge - Dress for August

It's been really hot here in Georgia for the past few weeks; so, when it came to designing a dress for August, all I could think of was to make it as cool as possible.  Here's a perky little sundress made of paper with fabric lace trim.

Cards for a Yahoo Group Swap

The challenge was to create 2-1/2" X 3-1/2" ATC's that do not have the normal rectangular shape.
