  11. Whenever I gaze at your work, Patty, I’m inspired with my jewelry…so much color, texture, and form! Thank you for sharing xoxo

  12. If I wasn’t doing another on-line class I would be racing over to Misty Mawn – although I can’t imagine doing something anywhere near this, they are your own art. All are wonderful with fabulous surfaces, I especially like the first one – the bird, the words and the music all come together. I also like the way you use repeated designs on the second and fourth.
    Great artwork, Patty.

  13. Breathe and just play……………good words to create. Lovely pages and I really like your drawings! Misty would be pleased as punch with your results! I’m in the midst of a journal swap and needed a punch of inspiration and your post did just the trick! xoxoxo

  26. You make the most beautiful citra solve papers. I’ve never gotten mine to look as good as yours. And that washi tape is to die for! You won’t find anything like that here, will you?

    Seems that you and I are both working with scraps from our scrap boxes. But your art is simply incredible, and so well put together, too. And as always, I love your arch stamp. Of course, I never thought to use hole reenforcers. Clever, clever.
