… the good stuff

Magpie's Nest The Good Stuff (1)

haven’t made an inchie in quite a while but this one popped up at just the right time to inspire a couple of quick pages in my gesso journal and the heart is punched from monoprint paper …

Magpie's Nest The Good Stuff (2)

the flower was created out of paper clay awhile ago in a mold I made using a fancy metal nail head embellished with some paint and rub on gold…

  8. Another winner. I love the gesso pages. I think this would be a good challenge for me…instead of throwing color at the pages…keep them simple.

  9. What started out as a simple page, turned into a masterpiece in your capable hands. I simply adore all about it, from the doodles to the heart. And of course, the flower is wonderful, too. Have a safe and happy trip and Thanksgiving. I’ll miss you and your artistic inspiration.

  22. You would have imagined that an inchie would work so perfectly within a journal page.
    I do love the pairing of the fragments of text with that gent and also your paperclay flower is a beautiful handmade embellishment.
    Gorgeous!
