Poppy Paper Quilt


Sometimes when a watercolor piece just doesn't please me too much, it pleases me much better to tear it apart. That's what I did here. Bernie and I had a good time. This is 140 lb watercolor paper plus a lighter weight Arches Text Wove watercolor paper stitched on.  This is about 11x11. Maybe I will put it onto a 12 x 12 canvas and sell it on Etsy.

Y'all have a great weekend and 4th. Nor sure if I will have anything else to blog over the holiday weekend but if not---see y'all next week!
