What Else?

Just a quick post to share what else I've worked on lately ...
Paper towel pendants for a trade on Surface Design. I made one for each person's initial. I made these 1x3, which is the size of a microscope slide. I thought that would be something a little different. I really enjoy the results of this technique. I will share with you some of the beautiful pendants I have received, in the days to come.
The next few shots are some of the work I took to the gallery. Above is a detail of a skeleton leaf on dyed paper towel. Below is a piece made with dryer sheets and melted tyvek. This is the third piece like this one to go to the shop. The other two sold pretty quickly.
The next piece, below, is a leaf tryptic with hand painted dryer sheet background. I should have stitched the piece after I attached the leave so that the lines don't show through. Oh well! I still like how it came out. I used 4 colors on the dryer sheets and I think it makes a nice background.
And finally - how could I not share another cute puppy picture! Rosi is almost 4 months old and still a charmer. She loves sticks and big pine cones (there's one by her front feet). Doesn't she look happy? She's all legs right now, and about 30 lbs. She loves people, and we are working on teaching her manners. She sure is a good girl!

I love the size of those pendants. And I see you also matched the first letter of the words to their inititals. Aren't you just something? *S*

Everything you do is just so beautiful.
