These two pieces are favorites right now. They look even better in person! If you came to the local show, you already had a chance to see them then, but for everyone else this is your first look at them. Lots of layers, impressions, stamping, and rich autumn colors. I chose a set of simple, unvarnished, natural wood frames for them. I think they compliment them without distracting from them. Enjoy!

I’ve almost finished working on the folding screen with crystalline paper inserts. We found the screen at a yard sale for next to nothing and I thought I could do something interesting for the inserts. I made some crystalline papers for other projects and decided I’d give them a try for the screen. The result is stunning. Even in fairly low light the colors come through. Below are two of the inserts. Each one is different and has a personality all its own. Continue reading “More #Art-Folding Screen With Vivid #CrystallinePaper Inserts”
