Something blue and ravens…

I created a couple of ATCs earlier this afternoon with the above themes in mind. I was altering a summer smock top, also blue, and decided to “make hay while the sun shines”… Mixed Media Monday’s  Diane has finished the wedding sayings with “Something blue…” and TMTA have chosen “the Raven” for their ATC subject this week, so  here they are:

Leo's "blue" ladies

On a handpainted blue-toned background, stamped onto thick clear plastic, stitched onto the card and trimmed.

The singing raven...

Scraps stitched onto the same background as before and the raven stamped onto recycled sheet music paper.

  1. Both are truly lovely!

  2. Gorgeous, Rosie! I love Leo’s Ladies! Especially the combination of the fibers, tulle and pearls! Wonderful!! XOXO

  3. I love the stitching textures you put in your work – the Raven is particularly effective – you can imagine it collecting scraps to make nest…

  4. I always seem to be applauding your stitch-witchery, Rosie. Now you’ve done it again! APPLAUSE

  5. So many beautiful blues used in these awesome pieces Rosie!

  6. You do wonderful work with bits and scraps of paper and fabric, Rosie. These are beautiful work.

  7. wow, I look over some of your stuff and I have to say you’re very creative. I love it. To me its nothing I have see.
