Meet Secondhand Rose!

Still playing with this Muse Doll for my fiber arts group!  She now has a face, flowers in her hair and a name, Secondhand Rose.  Her quilted wings have her mantra, "wear it out, use it up".  She wears her 'art' on her sleeve and holds notions, tools and bits of inspiration in her binder clip hands!  Meet Rose, my Muse!

Coloring My World

I was introduced to Derwent Inktense Blocks at a Fiber Arts Group and I am loving using this color play element!  I am making a muse doll to combine new and old techniques.  So far, my muse has a quilted apron and a heart, the nurse in me insisted on an anatomically correct heart drawn in Inktense.  Also in progress , a quilt block with embroidery and Inktense.  Adding color is so much fun!  Color me happy!  Jessica Pearl
