Back to the Dots

I'm going to be traveling later this fall, so I've decided to use Sept. to get lots of my little gift items ready for my art group's Dec. show.

Last year I made little dots of fabric and put them everywhere. You can see them here and here.


They were so much fun to play with that they will be reappearing in new forms this year.

I'm restocking my little hearts since they sold out last year. This year I'm experimenting with using big, graphic black and white prints as the backgrounds:


And I'm making some fantasy landscape bookmarks:

And my dots make perfect owl eyes. I'm trying some larger guys:


If you are in the Portland area, mark your calendars for Dec. 3 and 4 at Multnomah Art Center. It's always a really fun show.

Seeing dots before your eyes? Going dotty? Connecting the dots? A gal's dot to do what a gals dot to do.

Your fantasy dots looks wonderful...I have played with some with felt and fabric and a little bit of hand stitching...they add such a lovely dimension to your art.
Loving everything you do.

Your dots are sure colorful and a lot of fun. I really like the lines and use of your dots in the landscape bookmarks. Please save one for me.

That's the closest I can come to an owl in geek speek.
