Emily. 6"x8" This is the piece I started in Susan Sorrell's Fabric Collage class at Joggles. I finished it up the other night and it's just waiting to be mounted on black foam core board before heading off to its new home with my mom. I really like how the big flowers turned out. I want to do more work using embroidering to add patterning and texture. I also really like the glow-y quality of the background. I've been making a folder of images I'm drawn to over the past few months and almost all of them have that glow-i-ness. I need to work harder at figuring out how to accomplish that. I'm very happy with this piece. I think it captures the exuberance of the little creature it represents - a successful expression of my idea! Posted by Picasa

I want to take that class to learn to get wild with embroidery. I like your piece and I'd come play any day!:)

What a happy feeling this piece conveys! I love it! I hope all your visitors click and get the enlargement, the smaller picture just doesn't do it justice.
