A Is For Apple

After covering this ornate "a" with resin, I was reminded of children's alphabet books.  The first one is always "A Is For Apple".  I made a collage background using an apple pattern cut from freezer paper for a resist.  To attach the "a", I cut a square from the collage and hammered it on with grommets in the corners.
To frame the piece, I wrote apple sayings all around the edges.  When held to the light, you can see through the resin "a".

  1. I like the way you have chronicled our class lessons. Your work is always lovely, and here I see your garden is too. I'm envious of your "seven day weekends" - aaaahhh! :o)
