(Evangeline's) Autumn Cloud

Evangeline's Autumn Cloud was a bear to finish... don't know if it was because I wanted to do something totally different flower wise, or if the colors were hinky or precisely what the problem was. But, I worked and worked and layered and kept layering and finally was mostly pleased. I have an abundant stash of vintage buttons and I decided that adding them did change the look of the petals. The center is an antique coaster over gold mesh with a bazillion tiny crystals and such glued on the image - once again, I need to keep better track of which drawer the 'girls' come from and to whom to give credit...



The 12 x 12 below is Jim's (my hubby) piece; as you can see our styles are a bit different:) He has been showing (and selling!) for years now and it can be a bit intimidating working alongside him. He has actually been inspired a bit by a couple of my techniques though, so, YaY! I hope to have all of them photographed by my friend Jeff, the pro, because I don't have the lighting to get an accurate rendering.





Thanks for looking! More photos to come!

So cool to see these side by side. In some way they are so different from each other...but I see similarities too.

Hi Patti, I found the little birdhouse at a flea market and I payed only 20 Cent for it. A real bargain:-)
