February BJP finished


Well, I succumbed to the Valentine's Day idea and here is my February piece - love crashing down from the sky in the form of a star, shooting up the purple heart as ejecta. It's done on a background that was layered - a scrap of red silk for the base with some silk-painted ribbon lace on top and a piece of reddish gold organza on top of that, which I gathered in some places - you can see the gathers towards the bottom near the star.

Here is a pic showing the January piece from a sideways angle, so you can see how the florist's glass blobs are in relief. It took me a while to put this pic up because I had to buy another packet of rechargeable batteries.

And here is a pic showing the first six all together, stretched onto posterboard. I may do beaded edgings or make them into an accordian book - not sure yet.

I'd like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who has left such lovely comments on my blog - it's very encouraging and leads me to your blogs which is very inspiring.

Your work is really beautiful. Really! Feb page is striking but partly because I love red. Your page collage is really impressive. Wonderful, I'd say.

It's gorgeous and a really great interpretation of Valentine's Day. Your fibers with the beads and the way you mix them is wonderful.

Your page for this month is stunning. I love your color choices and the medium you used to present it. How beautiful are all y our pieces together? I love they way they all look. Different subject matters for sure, but they all compliment each other in style.
