July Header

Ha! Hello, July! Where did you come from?! I'm excited about this month's header. It comes from one of the fabric pieces I marbled a few months ago for my "clutch collaboration" with fashion accessory designer, Jeanie Joe. Here is the full image:

And here is another shot of a different part of the same fabric piece:

Another section from the same piece of fabric.

I have to admit I really loved marbling on black fabric ~ but it comes with a downside: not all colors show up. It was a true act of exploration and discovery trying to figure out what would work and what wouldn't. In the pieces above, believe it or not, I used Golden's Yellow Oxide.

I'm also giddy about the font my name is in. I've wanted to use this font for ages ~ but never found the right background until now.

Jeanie Joe has been very busy these past few weeks stitching and tucking and clutching preparing for the South Pasadena Arts Crawl where she'll have some of our clutches for sale at Lilly. Stop by and see what other wonderful creations she'll have on hand ~ you won't be disappointed by her style, quality, and creative expression. I'm certainly not!
