These studies were done to be used as references for a future painting- but I think the first one may work as a complete picture.

"Love does not consist in gazing at each other But in looking outward together"
Antoine De Saint-Exupery

These are all fabric with a bit of embroidery

My power was out all day...but I do not think I am to late yet?
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First quilt- with matching bedroom set on: August 09, 2007 11:50:04 PM
 This is my very first quilt. I was not sure what I was doing and I wanted it to fit my waterbed so I had to use the **lets see if this works and I hope it does** technique
All the squares were left overs from fabrics that my grandmother made clothes for my mother out of. She in turn made me and my siblings clothing out of what was left, and I finished it up with clothes for my kids. So this is a very sentimental journey for me Smiley

Since it was for a water bed I added a ruffle edging. Well, that  made the bottom of the waterbed look bad, so I made a dust ruffle to match the quilt.  Then the curtains did not match so I just had to make new ones Wink. The white and red stripe fabric let to much light in  so I backed the curtains with  red fabric and made the pillow shams to match. Now I have to do something to the headboard Grin

Just before posting I saw pertelot's version of this quilt design and almost chickened out of posting- hers is fantastic. Here goes anyway Cheesy

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / please help me identify these flowers on: July 29, 2007 10:50:24 PM
Hope this is the place to post. I just moved and this vine is growing on the side of the house

It bloomed in mid-July

Also this bush

Which bloomed mid-June
They are not extremely fragrent but very beautiful (and obviously low maintenance, the house was vacant for years). I would love to know what they are!
Oh! I'm in Indiana, I believe in zone 6

When The Dream Becomes The Nightmare: A Model's Story


These were done in one session (one for each) with a model. I wish I would have had more time to put a good polish on the first one. The skeleton hung around, but the girl had to leave.

I am always putting my two cents worth in on this board and I just realized I had not posted any drawings yet, only a couple of paintings.
Comments are always welcome

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pinecone and feathers barrettes and pins- with tutorial on: June 29, 2007 12:23:53 AM
I used to make these in the early 80's. I worked at a large craft store and we had directions...but I could not find them to respond to a post. I did find one I finished and a few barely started so I finished and here they are.

The next image is materials, except glue  I used hot melt glue gun but a thick tacky craft glue will work  Pull the petals off the pine cone with needle nose pliers- if they are jagged at the end just trim them straight with scissors

For the hair combs and barrette without feathers
Cut a piece of felt the size of your barrette.and glue it on.
Glue one petal to each end of the barrette.
Glue the next petals so that they overlap the first (last picture shows start) working to the center
Glue one petal facing up, and one facing down over the space where the two sides meet- trim to fit if necessary
Glue a bead in the center where the four petals come together.
The narrow one in the top of the picture also has tiny seashells, but they are hard to see

For barrette with feathers
As before glue one petal onto each end. Only this time glue the next one facing up.
Glue five or six feathers on the space between these petal ends.
To cover the glue spot that happens when you glue feathers I glued a tiny pinecone (I cut the bottom a bit with wire cutters to make it flatter)
in the center. Fill in between this center cone and the end with more petals.
Glue one larger pinecone petal under the tiny come so it hangs down- then glue a feather to each side of the tiny cone

For the magnet or pin cut felt the shape of your magnet or pin (mine was round)
Start by gluing four larger pinecone petals so the ends meet in the center of the circle (see photo)
glue feathers on top of the center of this cross shape so they fill the empty spaces between petals.
Using smaller pinecone petals repeat the four petal shape on top of the feathers
Glue on a smaller pinecone for the flower center.

I think the book with directions was called Pinecone Pretties' and If I had to guess I'd say plaid published it, as they were the crafty publishers to be back then- so if anyone knows and would like to add facts, feel free Cheesy

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Aunt Frances and Clueless on: June 20, 2007 11:15:37 PM
All the other altered vintage cards are superb!  I figured I had better post mine before I allowed the competition to scare me off Grin
This is a photo of my Aunt Frances- the horse's name was not on the back of the photo- since I am clueless about his name, that is what I decided to call him  Wink
