Some color in my art room . . .

I have been in the mood for flowers lately. It may be because it is spring, it maybe because I can't resist the splash of color. The flowers I posted are made of silk, chiffon, organza, and tulle. I love the way the material responds to heat and creates that ruffled edge. The plaster flowers are just something I had to experiment with to see what would happen. I like the way they turned out and am happy to have a little stash of them to use on upcoming projects. I like it when I respond to that inner urge to just try something with no goal in mind other than to see what will happen. I am not always so brave in the real world, but it is easy to do in the art room! Hoping you have color and/or courage in your day today.

Oh my gosh, Deborah!!!! You've made something really beautiful here. I love all the cheery colors.....What made you experiment with plaster? Did you use molds?
I really like these and I'm so glad that you shared with us.

Hugs and blessings,
