Still here and lurking

I have been pretty busy since last time I posted with several pieces. I'm just pleased that flowers come in so many shapes and colors.
Today I am working with my Inktense pencils on a water lily. I tried my other inks and paints, but the result I wanted comes best from the pencils and plain 'ol water.
When I am happy with all the petals (which are drying all over the place, then I will baste it together.
I got some stuff since I visited my friend and saw her toys. Mainly I got a Speedball baren (round thing that you can use to press fabric onto your Gelli plate.) I also got a yard of silk screen fabric and a couple of small canvases.
Once I am done the petal painting I will move onto making some gelli and silk scree-type designs for backgrounds.
Here is a photo I am working from. No actual work to show yet.

Won again!

I belong to the DAR and they run a contest every year, called the American Heritage Contest. I entered again in the Fiber Arts - Wall Hanging category. Well, happily, I won the Northeast Division! My entry will now go onto the National Competition. Time will tell how that will go.
Here's my entry, I'm sure some of you will recognize it too.
