Can you guess which piece this is? Isn't is amazing how changed something can be?
Wouldn't it be grand!!!
They are so beautiful when they sit still. This one was taken from the outside. and the next from inside... grin ... back then front... I wonder if he could see me?
Carrying on in the tulip phenomena. My brother gave these beauties to me last fall. They are the special tulip commissioned for Canada's 150 birthday .
We have had three prefect days, warm scented air and the tulips are perfect too!
Haven't got any blooming in the garden yet... that will come in another week but I couldn't resist the bouquets fresh from the florist shop. I've had them the week and even as they fall apart there is great beauty coupled with dramatic colour, patterns and texture!
Hope you had a special day!
I'm experimenting with how different paints work on timtex, which is a very stiff polyester interfacing. I have used it before to make fabric books and postcards and this will be the ultimate purpose of these experiments but I wanted to try some watercolours first. I really love this one. The paint soaked in at different rates and made some lovely patterns.
what do you think?
and every year they find their way out of the box and onto my mantle. They never fail to make me smile! No matter how cold it is outside!!!
...but christmas colours prevail even through the snow!
