mixed media flower with a map and papertowel

found a little play time in the studio this weekend in between a volleyball tournament and family time. i had been saving a used paper towel for something good and the something turned out to be the background for a mixed media flower.

i had been using an old map to roll off and clean my brayer when using my gelli plate and found a section that i loved; so i cut it out. then, i spied my used paper towel and knew what to do.... make this flower.

i had a few small scraps of fabric that i used for the flower stem and leave; using black thread to stitch it all together. i did use my new Dina Wakley paint for the blue (sky is the actual color) flower petals. here is a bird's eye view of the whole piece. i also used Tim Holtz's alphabet stencil to spray on my letters with Dylusions spray ink.

happy monday....
