Cool idea, your patchwork and stitching look wonderful! I love the one with the heart. Creative way to recycle as well. :-)


These are wonderful. I've often found that the sheet I'm trying colors on while painting looks like an abstract -- but it never occurred to me to look at the paper towel I'm using. You are so clever!!! These are just yummy.


Awesome idea! I'm so drawn to things cut in squares and just started sewing on paper. What a great way to start my morning with some inspiration from you!

These are WONDERFUL! I'm going to have to try this. Was it ink or watercolours or acrylic? Kerryfelter/Sharon

wow...i see these mixing in with everything! thank you much for sharing ... :)


Thanks for sharing, Cynthia! The cards are absolutely gorgeous!


Cynthia, with this art you brought back a memory I'd forgotten a kid on long summer days I used to like to take wads of toilet paper, stuff it into a small flower pot, pulling some up to look like twists of a leaf and drip drops of water and food color on it just to watch it spread out. I thought it was beautiful like flowers...but never showed anyone 'cuz I was embarassed that I made art out of toilet paper :-)


LOVE these. Such an inspiration Cynthia.


Thank you for this wonderful tutorial and these amazing pieces of heart!

I LOVE these! Thanks so much for sharing! :)


I love these too! I love how free you are with your art and the results are amazing!


In this cause trash was treasure; I am happy you were inspired and pressed on. One would never know, unless up close may recognize the texture. They all are amazing; pretty paper like quilts. Thank you for following your instincts~


Fabulous! When my kids were dying Easter eggs I was wiping up dye drops with paper towels (4 kids...8 hands in 6 cups of dye was a bit messy). The colors were really bright as we used 2 color tablets per cup (so they could use both the Hello Kitty and Star Wars stickers ;))...and the paper towels were so bright and amazing! I saved them and started dipping the paper towels in the leftover dye thinking I could use them to create something. And voila! here is the perfect idea! Beauty! Thanks so much!
