New Art with a "Green" Twist

I just finished this piece yesterday and it is up for sale down in Fredericksburg, I am excited about this piece as I have FINALLY taken the leap to include art pieces based on my own photography! You probably rmember this photo from my stationary pack that i posted aobut a while ago. pansies and Lily of the Valley are two of my favorite flowers along with roses and ........ (everything else). These are my favorites because they are flowers of my earliest memories in my families gardens and because their fragrance is so evocative.

The base of this piece is a vintage book cover from an old gardening book. the bits of copper and blue green filmy fabric are painted used drier sheets and the scalloped embroidered piece is a bit of damaged linen bureau scarf. I did the hand beading and seed stitch embroidery with embroidery floss. I will definately be creating more of these pieces!!
Have a happy Sunday, all !!!
As I am approaching the 300 post milestone and I am clelbrating my 50th birthday today, I am feeling generous! SO I am planning a giveaway!! There will be three winers and each different item will be han made by me. Come back soon to see the announcement and the goodies that I will be gifting!!
Hugs and thanks to all of you for all of your wonderfully enthusiastic and supportive comments!!!

Happy Birthday Sweet Elizabeth!

What a lovely piece! It won't be for sale for long!

When I was growing up in Massachusetts, we always had pansies in our summer flower bed. I have the fondest memories of Lily of the Valley in my Nana's flower garden....just huge drifts of them...and they certainly did perfume the air!
