on etsy tonight
Again I had fun with a transparency. Oh my goodness, I am in love, madly, wildly crazy over transparencies! Who knew? What a sad face this one has. I found her on ebay a few weeks ago and I knew the moment I saw her I had to have her and luckily she was cheap. She needs a bit of restoration but I haven't had time to do that yet and I sort of like her not perfect. After I had her all sewn on the pages, (machine stitching and I handstitched her bracelet and the string holding the heart, near her hand.) I opened up a page in my old "Little Women" book and there were the words "all alone." Fitting I thought for such melancholy.
I love her and she is one of my favorite things I have done but I am putting her up for sale on etsy before I have a chance to frame her. I like the idea of my art traveling to a new home, touching a new heart. Make it and let it go.
Today in the mail I received two of my recent ebay purchases. I received art from Brandie and art from Colette and I love them both. (Please go and check out their sites.) So neat to hold these works of art in my hands after seeing them and loving them on their blogs. I will always treasure them.
