Waiting for the storms to pass!

My hubby and I are visiting family and friends in Mobile, Al. Being from upper Michigan, the spring storms that just past through were quite an experience!  Yikes!  Heavy rain, high winds, thunder, lightening and alarms going off warning you of flash flooding and tornados!  I'm used to snow!
So I did some sketching  while we waited for the storms to pass .   The background on the colored photo was done with alcohol inks before I drew on it.
...Today the sun is shining!!!!

Gelli Plate Art Quilt

I do love playing with my gelli plate.  I recently painted  fabric and made  an art quilt.  It may look familiar because i did the same design in paper last year.  I have also made a throw pillow usinging my gelli plate to create the fabric first!
