It's fun to be excited about a theme and explore it in so many different ways!
Have you got a theme, or series that you're excited about right now?

  1. Fabulous! I love the foam stamp on acetate! And yes, I have a theme I'm excited about right now... Dragonflies! But so far I have only done them with soy wax batik... need to expand my horizons! Thanks for all your inspiration...

  2. The paisley, often overlooked in design, but really the perfect shape for constant movement. I love all of your designs, and the variety in which you made them. Simply inspirational! Thank you for sharing so openly what you create!

  4. Jane, thanks for sharing these beauties! You are so inspired, it is as if all you touch - here a humble paisley motif - becomes a great pattern embellished thanks to your imagination and creativity!

  5. Wow: you have been busy!! Love the paisleys.
    We are on a traveling binge right now, but will be home next week and I will get back to play in my studio. You make me want to get back into stamp carving. Where do you find your acrylic backs for the sticky-backed foam? I love that idea.
    I'll be seeing you in Saluda!!! I am so excited!!!
