something near and dear to my heart…

 I got busy gluing papers and bits of this and that to the pages of my old encyclopedia with soft gel medium…

Magpies Nest Angels 3

with special thanks to Carmen Dyson for all of the wonderful vintage finds she shares so frequently with our local arts group…

Magpies Nest Angels 2

Jean I used one of your lovely tissue paper images and some of the pretty paper you sent to me too = so many precious ingredients from thoughtful and generous friends who are like angels here on earth…

my star stamp was made by heating the star shaped black foam attachment of a Colorbox Stylus and pressing it into a swirl pattern (I’ve had it for so long now I forget what I used exactly)…

    Congratulations to you for your 1,600 post, surely a milestone and as for the 1,600 I certainly hope to be with you along the way whether it be art you share or photographs from your travels.
    Gorgeously ethereal and wistful and so precious the way you incorporated such special ephemera and images from friends.

  22. I have a special Italian word for this artwork.it’s “angelica”. And you can guess it means something so beautiful that can compare to angels 🙂

  25. Wow. I realize you like angels, but this is wonderful. And of course, the tip about the stylus is incredible. I have several of those styluses (styli?), but none of mine are that large. They are the size of the little ink pads. I’ll have to take a new interest in them, since I never even considered heating them until your tip. After all, that’s what blogging friends are for. Of course, there’s always inspirational art, too!!
