This time I incorporated a cucumber beetle cut from a page of a vintage children's book that my friend Melanie gave me. I antiqued the beetle to knock down the color just a tad - even though the page was old, the colors were a little too bright for this piece. The flowers are free-hand sketched with black thread on a sewing machine. Now if it would warm up outside so the garden really could start growing! I'm sooooo ready for Spring and an end to the dreary Winter landscape and the cold temperatures.
