Working with circles is more soothing plus I have lots of them cut out.
I like using not only the circles but what remains when they are punched out.
There are such different spatial relationships and "meanings" that are evoked by these.
For instance, this one makes me think of a party, of fun, of joyful playfulness. Even though the color blue is often associated with sadness, this one is not at all sad for me.
Though, at the moment, I'm feeling sad for what is going on in Istanbul, hoping our friends are okay.
My younger sister sent this to me. I'd done this drawing of myself back in 1969 and sent it to her. She thought I'd enjoy seeing it again and I do. Julie suggested that I scan it and put it into Tiny Town. Perhaps I'll do that for my very last one.
My honey looked at this and said - "Oh, you were very fashionable then." Hmmm, guess I'm not so these days.
My older sister sent me a quantity of laces, trims, and appliques (and other stuff) that she was clearing out. I sold a few things at a vintage shop for her, now am putting them on Etsy, in my FritziMim shop.
Check them out. If you know anyone interested in making things with vintage, unused, cool stuff, send them my way.
And here is our cutie, Zinn. Happy girl in her summery dress. She's nearly 3 months old.
