Experimentation ensued and after a little playing around with alcohol inks, India inks and the heat gun, the leaves are now richly colored.
At this point, the shelf is up and I'm ready to sew with ease when the mood strikes. At the moment, however, I'm itching to work with metals or some mixed media. It's the scanner* in me -- loving a wide variety of crafts. How about you? Do you focus on one or two or do you flitter about among several?
* Scanner is a term coined by Barbara Sher for those of us with "hit and run" obsessions, eager to explore many paths. The trait comes with pros and cons, as most things in life do. And as with most things, it's best to embrace it as part of who we are and make the most of it.
I'll end with this quote from Queen Latifah:
"I wish every woman would love herself
and embrace what she was given naturally."
