creatures of the sea…

the oceans are full of many living beings…

Magpie's Nest the sea 1

I was inspired to create a spread in one of my gesso journals for the AJJ September Challenge with the round image of a mystery lady…Magpie's Nest the sea 2

toward the end of this month Mr Magpie and I will be taking some time to relax by the sea and twinkle our toes in the sand for a couple of weeks…

  18. Dearest Patty, this is so special with the big shell , how I love it-and the beautiful fern leaves, too- the mystery mermaid looking into a new beautiful spot, under the water, has fantastic eyes ! What a spread of adventure, and magic !
    Hope you are well, Patty, and wishes you a wonderful weekend, dear.

  19. Liebling,
    “Gosh, I want to be:

    By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea!
    You and me, you and me, oh how happy we’ll be!
    When each wave comes a-rolling in
    We will duck or swim,
    And we’ll float and fool around the water.
    Over and under, and then up for air,
    Pa is rich, Ma is rich, so now what do we care?
    I love to be beside your side, beside the sea,
    Beside the seaside, by the beautiful sea!”

  20. I’m currently reading “The Museum of Extraordinary Things” by Alice Hoffman. The face on your page makes me think of the main character Coralei who has to perform as a mermaid in her father’s museum. Your page is extraordinarily beautiful.

  22. You always source the most beautiful ladies/faces. The other person who I also say this to is Marie (Lost Bird Studio).
    She has a compelling face and you just know she has a story to tell us all of the places she has travelled to. I like the addition of the stamped shell. A very beautiful page.
    Wishes
