progress!

after a pretty non-productive morning artwise (dog walk, store, bank, another walk, reading) i actually made progress on the metal transfer art... i pulled out & photoshopped a good group of potential images.

2 themes- birds & trees




and seeds/pods/shells.....

i have 14 6x6 metal squares that are heat treated to put these on, will give back to my friend zella who will make amazing quilts out of them. it helps to see them laid out in black & white to see which work together and what might not.
i will also use my old friends the rose hips. i may include a blooming rose, in color, with that bunch- there are some really dark pieces that might benefit from a pink rose.
probably go with caulk transfers from transperancies for the cleanest results....
i just feel so much better getting to this point! hopefully i can knock the transfers out this weekend and get them to zella next week so if she wants more/different/etc. i can do that....
but now- bed! up early to walk- and i need to, i have been miss piggy stuff your face the past few days- better turn that trend around!
