happy easter!

hi all!

well no races last night - BOO!  maybe next time. we don't have much planned for easter - lunch with the in-laws.  other than that i hope to work in the yard - my veggie garden is almost completely in!

i wanted to post this little fun wall plaque i made for easter:

i had so much fun with this one - i always like my own stuff but i have to be honest - this may be one of my most fave things i have made yet!  and best of all...

***for those of you coming to my mixed media class in baltimore in may - this is one of the techniques we will learn!*** 

not the actual paper piecings - that part is easy.  the foundation is what we will work on.  then YOU will choose what you want to do on top - paper piecing, stamped and colored image, photo, just words....

i have discovered a new love - MDF - medium density fiberboard.  that's what i used here and what we will use in class for one of the projects.

of course, my background is Luminarte Primary Elements mixed with gum arabic and water - i never get tired of that GLOW!  The paper piecings used here are mostly from Treasure Box Designs except for the frame - it is from My Scrap Chick.  i cut it all out using my black cat cougar - an amazing little machine that makes cutting all of this out SO EASY!


  1. Marti, this is absolutley fabulous! I LOVE it, great job!
    Hugs, Christine

  2. This piece is absolutely the colors and the joy it brings!
