flowers on her mind…

Magpie's Nest Open Art Journals

two more pages in my larger sized altered encyclopedia (top left) for AJJ’s Flower Power challenge which makes entry #8 for me this month (my other entries over at AJJ are #47, 72, 83, 108, 113, 124, 133)…

scraped paint pgs

I had scraped paint on the pages a long time ago with no idea what they would be used for…

gesso pgs

 some white gesso helped tone them down and I was ready to go…

Magpie's Nest Flowers on her mind

a sparkler rubber stamp came in handy to add a little detail to both pages…

I like the pressed Tansy leaves more than my molding paste stenciled leaves but I wanted to try out my new Tim Holtz vine stencil…

  1. Dear Patty I see new pages so nice made with the little post stamp with houses on it and the flower lady dressed in yellow. But the first background, before you killed it with gesso, I love most. A fire of colour and texture. But you like it more peaceful and it looks good too. I admire your fantasy.

  7. Ah, but Patty, you still have ONE more day to enter the AJJ Flower Power challenge (grin). These are all simply marvelous, and this one is truly lovely.

    I’m glad you had a chance to work with your new stencil, and I must really try molding paste one of these days. You make it look so easy, balanced, and filled with just the right amount of color. Love this one.


  8. Isn’t gesso just the best? I do like that starburst stamp — the finished product is great!


  9. Love the impact that perfect little face has on the pages. Flower Power takes me back a few decades.

    making magic happen again! I love it and especially like how you used that sparkle stamp as background and repeated it as her dress pattern. All your touches are like a wave of a magic wand – xo!

    Hugs from a tired grandma…. xxx


  18. I’m always thrilled and amazed what some random background color can do for the depth of a page. This is a perfect example. I’m so glad you have decided to embrace your handwriting…it’s quite lovely.


  19. “She thought about flowers every day”….that, you do….me, too. Beautiful pages.
