All the beautiful flowers in bloom and hot, hot days- it's summer for sure! So out come the Flower Ladies. I learned to make these with Barb Owen of How to Get Creative, and they are simply a creative arrangement of magazine images. Barb provided a download for the faces, which is appreciated- I'm just learning to draw faces and mine might not look so serene.
Piecing these ladies together is a lot like piecing a quilt. There are lots of creative options, and moving the bits around to audition them is fun.
Of course, it makes for lots of scraps, but then so does quilting! This tutu girl may be my favorite, but it's hard to choose because I love the star crown and leaf wings of the first girl and the bright painted daisy of the second. Now to explore the uses for these Summer Lovelies.
And summer for us has always included a visit to Maine. Oh, the freshness of the air, and the beauty of the rocky coastline! So beautiful. We were there in the Kennebunkport area for a week and had lovely weather and lobster. Refreshing.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
