You've Seen Her Before

Well, I'm not up to par yet but this is what I worked on yesterday. It's Lady B and you've see her before. Here she is painted on muslin and today I will decide what I will do with her. I have some thoughts. And you know I will show when done.

Here she is when she debuted in September.
You can read that if you just click here.

I thought it would be fun to see other
places that she has shown her face.

She was in my HeART journal in February.
You remember, MaryB won in the drawing.

Here she is printed on tissue and fused with other bits and made into a purse.

She found her way onto some ATCs.
Note to self, I need to do that again.

It's true, she is a favorite and I still have a lot of plans for this lady. One more thing......
you have not seen this.

The other side of my studio. What a mess! I wouldn't have it any other way. It doesn't bother me if it doesn't bother you. Actually, there was a tissue paper explosion that I cleaned out last week. So, it looks great today.
More later,
Oh yes, one more thing, she was the starting sketch on my True Colors "red" page which was used on my valentine.


  1. You are simply amazing - this is wonderful what you've done with this beauty!

  2. Very nice - and just HOW do you fuse tissue paper to fabric? Your purses are ALL AMAZING!! I just love them!

  3. I really like Lady B. Do you redraw her every time, or do you transfer her in some way?

  4. Lady B sure has been on a journey ~ can't wait to see where she ends up next.
    Have a great week.

  5. You manage to keep Lady B. familiar, yet fresh every time. Your studio has wonderful light! It looks very inviting. I would love to watch you create your magic there.

  6. She's beautiful in all her variations and the purse, it's fabulous. I just LOVE working with fabric and after all these years there are still many new techniques to learn!

  7. Hi Sharon, I don't know about you, but I very seldom feel like housework.
    LadyB is more beautiful in person. She resides in my guest room on top of the chest of drawers, when visitors come to visit, they also get to enjoy your heARTwork. Thanks Again.

  8. She really gets around! LOL Thanks for sharing.

  9. Don't you just love painting on muslin? You have done a fabulous job on Lady B.

  10. love Norah's face. as I said before. she is going to end up on doll. I will show you when she's made. although, right now, I'm making little horses.

  11. It is late - and I am pooped. =)

    But I wanted to say a few things...first, I love it that there are other artists out there who mess around in ALL kinds of mediums - fabrics, fibers, papers, tissue, wallpaper, acrylics, watercolor pencils and crayons, etc. I "go with the flow" and use whatever speaks to me in any given moment!

    I love it that you named your Muse. Mine is my 10 year old self - I should post a pic on my blog. My father named her years ago: Princess Squash. But I don't talk about her the way you do Norah...maybe I should...

    Most of all, I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading your blog archives. You are truly a beautiful spirit and it just comes through in your posts and in your art. I want to be like you when I grow up! =)

    I'm off to bed, but I intend to continue reading this blog all the way to the end!

    Oodgay-Ightnay (as I say to my children). =) (Good-night)
