Unfortunately, I’ve been sidelined these last few days with what started as a cold and then deteriorated into bronchitis. I finally gave in to it yesterday and went to the doctor. With the heavy duty cough syrup and antibiotic she prescribed, I should be on the mend soon. You know I was sick – I didn’t pick up my knitting needles or paintbrushes all day yesterday, sleeping most of the day away.
MY OWN MIXED MEDIA
Before my cold hit like a ton of bricks, I painted this background, getting ready for 2015’s first project.

I did some playing around with my new Big Kick die cutter – which I love, by the way – using some fabric scraps I had lying around. I’m drawn to leaf shapes at the moment and here’s what they morphed into:
Cotton fabric, die cut leaf shapes, glued onto bristol artist tile, distress ink
