I'm sure you'll agree that one of the most enjoyable sources for artistic inspiration is children. This piece was created for one of my granddaughters. Anything with color and imagination enthralls her. I hope she always keeps that excitement and learns to create her own works of art.

This is simply a fabric mosaic. It's not a difficult process. The individual pieces are heat bonded to a background fabric. Just dream up a subject matter and start cutting...

This is really neat! I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it. I'm going to have to remember the technique. I'm sure your grandaughter will love it!
