Finding Studio Time

Last week was the National Old time Fiddlers contest in Weiser and I always volunteer to help with tabulating the judges scores, I love doing it but it sure cuts into my studio time. I did manage to do two quick projects along with my daily and weekly ones. When we were in Washington my daughter kept commenting that her very spoiled little dog need her own red velvet pillow.  I happened to have a piece of velveteen that I'd dyed red so the pillow got made. It went in the mail today and I forgot to take a picture.
The other project was to dye a dress that one of my granddaughters had bought at a thrift store. here's the before shot. She wanted it green with some circles.

.And the after shot.

The Weekly Leaf

I used the ferns that I brought home from Washington, the gelli plate and green textile paint.
Here's the leaves on the paint covered gelli plate.

The first and second prints.
