Fabric flowers and Cards

Monday I did some fabric painting and this morning I started playing around with the flowery shapes.

I want to make a field of flowers with a few blooms standing out in the foreground.
I started cutting into one piece of painted fabric, using the second piece as a background.
I'll be overpainting the background piece and using thread to define the main flowers.
Just a fun, springy piece which I hope to finish later today!

Also, I was thrilled to receive some beautiful cards which I had ordered from my blogging friend, Libby Fife. Libby is a painter whose work I have followed for several years. She paints local scenes from Calaveras County, CA, where she lives, and she writes about these scenes here. I purchased 10 cards - these are my favorites, but I love all of Libby's paintings! 

Hope your week is going well! Thanks for visiting!

Lovely flowery work and great cards by your artist friend. Sorry I have not been visiting much recently Judy but I seem to be doing everything in slow motion recently, hence the name of my new blog 'Pootling with Paper'! Pootling is a British (slang) term for moving about slowly!
