Autumn Trees - continued but not finished!

I made quilled tear drop shapes for the leaves. Some are made with one color and others using two. There are a variety of different shades of green, brown, red, yellow and orange. More leaves to come!

Autumn Trees - Work in Progress

It was too nice of a day to stay inside, so I took my drawing materials and a tray table outside! I started with simple and unsophisticated drawing materials: blank index cards and ball point pens.

I created three different trees and then combined the drawings into one.

Wreath Card

This card was made for a special family member. I started with a little bit of collage before adding quilled shapes for dimension.

Flower card

I made this card for a special friend. I really enjoyed working a little larger and building up the layers in the flower. I also did some experimenting with the leaves.

Baby Girl Art

This project was made as a thank you gift for a friend for her little girl's bedroom. I really had a lot of fun making this! I am very happy with how it came out. Hopefully her baby girl will enjoy it!

I would like to make more of these personalized projects and have added a listing to my Etsy store.

For Our Baby Boy

This was the first project that I made for our baby boy's nursery. He isn't expected to arrive until July, so I have a feeling that I will be making other projects for his room before then! I had a lot of fun creating the animals, even though they didn't not always come out the way that I wanted on the first try.

Hopefully Luke will like it!
