My take on Matisse

It took me much longer than I'd hoped, but I finally finished my pages for the next round of the swap. This lady's theme was Matisse and she wanted us to come up with artwork inspired by his work or in his style. I chose to do my pages based on his later style of cutting large shapes out of colored paper. I embellished with embroidered stitches and some beading on the tree. Whew! Finally!!

Now I can work on the last round, my mom's. Her theme is the Seasons, and I believe I get to do summer. I've got one little bit of an idea for one page, so need to flesh it out and come up with a second page idea, too ... here we go again ...
