SAQA Auction

I've been remiss in mentioning the annual SAQA Auction that has been going on for the past two and a half weeks. There are still several wonderful pieces available (including mine) in the third section.
This is the piece I donated.

Poplar leaves

I gathered a bunch of leaves again this past weekend and did a bit of printing. First were some gelli prints on muslin.

Second group is botanical prints on silk broadcloth, except for the 2 on the left which are on scraps of vintage linen tablecloth.

I love how the leaf outline printed on this one.

I also did some finishing work on a group of last years weekly pieces. These were done in groups of five called "Signs of Life: the five universal shapes"
Today I hung it in the Art Guilds display area at Weiser Classic Candies.

  3. Hello Linda, I am totally intrigued with your work. so much that I just hit the follow button on your blog and I am going to add you to my favorite list. I want to see more!!! Your work is so original and creative. I have never seen Gelli Prints and have no idea how it is done, but plan on going to You Tube to see if I can find out more. Have you made any tutorials?
    Well, I just checked the clock and I have to get going . . . church service waits for no one, LOL.
    Happy stitching.
