Soggy — It’s the New Black

It was a dismally rainy spring here in the New York area. It feels like there haven’t been more than a handful of days in the last couple of months that I didn’t need to carry an umbrella with me. It’s really taken a toll on people’s spirits, I think.

I paper-pieced the umbrella using one of the patterns in the collection, and cut the piece out with some Circle Nestabilities (on SALE!!). After mounting it on a couple more circles, I used my craft knife to cut a slit in the umbrella stick so I could slip some of the yellow silk ribbon through. The sentiment is cut out with the Ribbon Tags Nestabilities (also on SALE!!) and airbrushed a little to brighten it up.
