Paper Pansy

Paper Pansy, Coaster, (4.25" x 4.25")
Fannie Narte

This paper quilt applique was made from fabric papers, fused onto the yellow fabric paper background, and thread sketched with black thread on top and blue thread in the bobbin.

Here's the other side. I usually do my thread sketching before applying the backing, except for this quilt. The blue thread sketching against the green felt creates a nice image and makes this reversible.

And here is the coaster in my glass candle holder:

Thanks for taking a break with me.

Did you know that blogger now allows you to schedule your posts? Isn't that great? Now I can say "Good Morning" to you early risers--at least to those in my time zone.

"Good Morning!" What are you doing today? Whatever you do, do something to make a difference in someone else's life . . . drop a note in your child's school bag, read a book to someone, send an "I'm thinking about you" e-mail . . .

A Dear Friend reminded me:

"Who you are, makes a difference."

Thanks for making a difference in my life.

your posts are delightful as is your art. I haven't been commenting much lately because things are quite hectic around here working on replacing siding & windows. But I do have to check out what you are doing as you continue to inspire.

I bet you hear it all the time but never often enough: You are a beautiful person!

Thanks for the blogging tip. I'll have to check out the updates.

Great coaster. The colors are beautiful as is the texture.

Fannie said...

Thanks for your visits and comments, Lisa and Jacq. I appreciate your both very much.

Regina, hope your construction is going well. Gotta keep out those mosquitoes.

Hi, Diana~from one who tries to inspire, to one who inspires many--Thank You for sharing your art with all of us.

Hi, Melissa. To me, it's just another coaster, with a different twist to it. To others, it's something new. Art and life--parallels: Each creation is unique and has its place in the world of art . . . each person is unique and has his/her place in this world. A nice combination--unique artists creating unique works. I like to visit your blog and see your unique creations.

Hi, Noel, fabric paper art is fun, and you're invited to play, but don't stop with your beading, please. You might throw me into a downward spiral if I don't see any new sparkly creations at "A Muzeing Journey." Encourager--I read your comments too, and you have a number of visitors on your back, including me. ;-D

Nice to see you, Melinda. Fabric paper is fun with the kids. My grandson likes to spread the glue over the muslin. You're welcome for the tag. Good to learn about you.

Hi, Freebird! Love that tag name, especially when combined with "sings." Inspires the imagination to run wild: Freebird Sings!!! Beauty--I see beauty in your contagious smile in your photo each time you visit. Thanks for bringing sunshine to my blog. You brighten my world.
