    I can't believe I'm posting twice in one day, but I saw something on Jane LaFazio's blog this morning that had my creative juices bubbling.  First, I dug into my drawer of gelatin-printed fabric and found a bunch of scraps (most of these pieces were actually printed last winter, in Arizona, where I had to use a purchased bouquet from the grocery store).

     I  then cut out three backgrounds,started collaging, and free-hand snipped some leaf stalks (a bit similar to Jane's, I'm afraid . . .).

     All of the pieces measure @ 5.5 inches and will become another Art X 3.  I actually finished all of the sewing today!!!!!!!!!!

     Now for the backing--I decided I'd try fabric this time by previewing several different shades and patterns of aqua blue.  

     I think I know the one I like best, but I'll mull for a while and then adhere the fabric to a piece of foam core and glue down the collages.  Another post coming soon.
