Frida Kahlo’s Birthday Tribute

Mexican painter Frida Kahlo
I have always admired Frida Kahlo’s  work, but admit I knew very little about her life and art other than her beautiful recognizable face.  So I decided to join the event at Sewing On My Kitchen Table  to celebrate her birthday by making something that captures the style and spirit of Frida Kahlo.
I began by finding a image and a thought provoking quote  I liked to create a journal page. I traced the image  on fabric and filled in with colored pencils.


Her thick eyebrows were her trademark

She wore elaborate hairdos with braids and flowers.

She painted self-portraits surrounded by her pets

 Now these cat-eyed glasses  above  are what Frida wore, but I believe she could Rock these heart -shaped glasses that I embellished.


Dia de Muertos---- Spanish for Day of the Dead a Mexican holiday that celebrates family and friends who have died.  I think this cuff braclet I made would also be a part of her wardrobe.


Linking up with guest host Diana at Red Delicious Life

Have a great week.

Peace, love, and art,


  1. Thanks for a lovely tribute Angela.

  2. Those are some lovely pieces, I can definitely see the inspiration. My favorite would have to be the sunglasses. :)

  3. Wasn`t she an eclectic person. I watched a movie about her life `Frida`. It was very interesting.
