waves of one sea…

 journaling on different kinds of surfaces like my chipboard tea cup book is proving to be a bit of a different challenge that I am having fun with…Magpie's Nest different journals

last year I created a loose leaf art journal working on both the front and back of each piece…

Magpie's Nest loose leaf art journal

I liked that format so much I thought I would begin another this time working in landscape/horizontal layout…

Magpie's Nest saves of one sea

here is my first page (layers of paint and plaster cloth) using part of this quote from a Baha’i poem:  “We are all the waves of one sea…We are all the leaves of one tree…We are all the flowers of one garden” for Art Journal Journey’s “favorite poems/quotes” challenge

  12. How lovely the art is on this loose-leaf journal. I love the night sky and the moon and the texture you have created. The quote is wonderful. I really admire those of the Bahai faith, My daughter had a very sweet boyfriend whose parents escaped persecution in Iran and they were of this faith. xxx
