shine like it does...

i've gotten quite a few requests for silver-lined clouds lately (were they featured somewhere and i missed it?) and so i've started a new batch:


dang i do love making these clouds and their silver linings:


since i had the silver floss out, i got started on another series/group that i've been wanting and meaning to do for a while. here's the first:


shiny crowns. ooooooh. i had done a whole bunch of these a loooong time ago -- like a year and a half ago. and i found them all as i was packing the studio. those ones were done in the metallic embroidery floss, like this one, but they were all really tiny. i didnt like any of them so i just threw them out.... since then i've found many far-better crown patterns. i'll probably do a few more. i think a grouping of these - different crowns, different sizes, slightly different background colors, but all with the shiny floss - would look cool as a little collection. more to come.
