  9. You are amazing – what a talent you have for putting this and that together — I shall call this spread “the music of her heart” . I think you should give art journal classes.

  10. That’s why you are an artist – you are able to make the most beautiful things out of just scraps laying around .. that is a magical talent — I am impressed with this wonderful spread – specially the TAP transfer on teapagpaer–oh my gosh —and the use of your electrocardiogram makes it extra special in my mind!
    AWESOME liebe Patty!

  15. It must also be good for you to see which techniques have stood the test of time and those you have perhaps never used since.

  16. I especially love the transfer of the woman. And fun to include your heart check — very clever. Sometimes just picking up something, anything, is the best way to go! Love you chose what was on your table!

    Have a very happy weekend, Patty — I suspect we’ll see more beautiful things next week!

  23. Thank you Corrine.

    TAP works great with all kinds of fabric.

  27. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday dear – it was a nice surprise to see your comments and yes, I would LOVE to teach workshops in ‘your’ Middleburg… if only… The transfer is lovely and your heartbeat tops this page off, such a nice thing to put on the page! Hope your Sunday is sunny, bright, spring-like and loving. Big hug from ‘my’ Middelburg!

  29. This is simply incredible, Patty. I was really impressed, maybe because I’ve never even seen an ECG, much less one that could be used in a piece of art. This was incredible. I also loved the TAP on a tea bag. That about blew me away!

    Sorry I’m late getting here. I hope my computer woes will stay away for a few weeks anyway. I have a lot to catch up on, that’s for sure.

  32. Had to laugh when I saw you had included your ECG print-out which just happened to still be on your table. These pages are a glorious mix and the middle of the right-hand page is an artwork in itself. It all made my heart beat faster.

  33. Patty, This is a fabulous spread! I love that girl graphic you used, and am curious as to how you transferred her onto teabag paper? She is wonderful and the addition of your heart rhythm just makes the whole spread perfect!
    I love it my friend!
