Silhouettes of Leaves

I guess I have spring on my mind more than usual. I created these three little tags with bright colors, deeply rich in saturation, with leaves and images of flowers.

These are polymer clay, hand painted and distressed.

They remind me of ceramic tiles you might see in a vintage ceramic wall, or like a mosaic tile.

There's a queen anne's lace, and rose leaves.

The back side has leaf images too - they look worn around the edges.

With deep bright colors. Ruby red, aqua blue and denim blue.

Lots of layers of color, created while it's gray, black and white here outdoors, with yet another layer of snow on the ground.

Come spring!
Wowzers, I zonked out last night about 7:30 pm, sitting up in a chair. That's got to tell a person something, right? So I crashed and slept many hours. Maybe that means I'm getting better ... I sure hope so.

It's too cold in the studio right now, we got more snow and are expecting even more tomorrow, I've set up a little working spot upstairs so I can do things that aren't too messy or noisy. If it's still so chilly on the weekend I'll get out the heater and the heating pad for my feet. I've got things to do!

I really like them, Lynn. Even thought spring is on your mind, you could use them anytime!

I love the rich saturated colors, Lynn! I have a personal goal to design in color this year, my palette tends to be dark and muted. These are very fresh.
Enjoy the day!
