Mixed media art quilt. Girl with leaves

I love this vintage picture. I wanted to use it on a small quilt and I could not find just the right fabrics to use with it.
I wanted the quilt to have an old vintage look to it.
I had just made a lap quilt with plaids and had a scrap laying on my cutting table.
I had at last found the perfect fabric to use!
I put some new and vintage buttons on top , beads and hand and machine embroidery.
This is beautiful framed.

Lavender sachet

The wind is blowing as she runs through a field of flowers.

Holding onto her scarf to keep it from blowing off her head.

I am a big fan of Pre-Raphaelite art. The women are absolutely beautiful in the art works.

I decided to use this picture in a lavender sachet.


I like to add bead work to some of my designs. This is another Pre-Raphalelite picture. Original designs.
