The little bird painting above is my first fabric painting collage that I made for my friend Fannie for her birthday. She gave me these wonderful water soluble wax pastels that you can use to draw with on fabric and then add water to make them look like paintings.
I drew/painted the bird and used my sewing machine to add the leaf border. The final touch was to collage some fabric flowers for a little extra flare. It was so fun to create!
Here is a tutorial Fannie put together which really inspired me.
Speaking of collage and paintings...

My dear friend Linda gave me this gorgeous painting for my birthday. I hung it in my sewing room and I just adore it! Thank you Linda!
It is a wonderful mat and frame that I filled with Emmitt photos!
I put in my bookshelf in my office and I just love it!
I chose Emmitt photos from puppyhood until now and the whole collage just makes me smile!
What a wonderful way to celebrate my Emmitt everyday!
Have a great weekend everyone!
