The weather here in Northern California has been just lovely as of late. We have been busy tending to our garden and doing a bit of late spring cleaning. I finally cleaned up my work area and it has given me a bit of a creative push. I was able to move my sewing machine out of the closet and have been working on this mixed media piece. I have been collecting antique and vintage prayer cards for a while now and decided that I would use one in this piece. I took some old cards and copied them onto printable fabric. I used some burlap for the background and stitched around it. The top lace is part of a vintage goodie bag I picked up at my favorite antique store. I also added a medal to finish it off. I am pleased how it turned out.
I also found some great antique and vintage jewelry pieces that I have added into my jewelry. Here is a sample!
Here are few rosaries that I have finished as well for my friend, Judy.
