Mystery Woman of the Flowers ATCs

I just finished these little ATCs (Artist Trading Cards). They are 2.5"x3.5". It is an original design I did with watercolor and colored pencil on Coquille paper. I scanned it and then sized it to an ATC and printed it on Avery cotton. I freehand quilted it by machine and added a zigzag edge. Beads and sequins were added and the edging embellished with gold dimensional fabric paint.

Negative Space

This 5"x7" piece explores negative space, and also texture. I used cut pieces of canvas that I found tucked into a closet and used it with a sleeve of an old black velvet dress from the kind they wore on Dynasty.
