  3. Maya Angelou was right, she expressed so true words, if only the World would understand and apply: “We need each other as we need the earth we share”… xo

  6. Beautifully done – you must know every technique in the book. I love the castle page – so beautiful in all its simplicity. But when I read about it, I have no idea what TAP is and it all definitely does not sound simple!

  7. A beautiful spread again, with your wonderful sense of mixing materials to create a beautiful overall impression. Love your hand with the lovely beeswax flower ,and your text of joy in France…. which there still is , also after the last terrible murder,- as we must live on, taking joy, in our everyday life, and not letting these “black” persons , win.
    I`m glad France now will stop showing the faces of the terrorists after their death, as they should in NO way be honored , which they are in their own part of “world” .
    Oh Patty, so lovely with your beautiful creations, dear friend. oxoxox
