pages for a friend…

the talented and lovely Lisa asked me to create some pages in her round robin spiral book a few months ago…

Magpie's Nest My pages (1)

what with one thing and another…

Magpie's Nest My pages

Magpie's Nest My pages (11)

the topic is so rich and chewy and boundless and deep…

happy that I will be able to finally return Lisa’s book to her at our upcoming local Mixed Media Collaborative meeting

♥ I really enjoyed creating these Love pages ♥

  6. Beautiful pages. The color and texture are so lush and alive, it’s like the greenest garden made even greener with the power of love.

  7. Such a wonderful description about love “chewy” – how fabulous!
    Patty, only you would take such a theme and break all boundaries by working in a colour palette not traditionally associated with love and what I see before me is a contemporary interpretation. Of course, great use of the lyric.

  8. not only beautiful… but true… xoxo

    ohhhhhmyy! I just love it and can’t wait to get it in my hands!!! That quote is one of my all time favorites and of course the color palate is my happy place – it also gave it a worldly feel like maps of land and ocean…Patty I can’t thank you enough! xoxo Love is all you need and a little art to delight the eyes!
