notes..... {vintage image}

as i was writing my intimate thoughts and notes, she was offering her own commentary.

and not a seriously good one..... you may know the one i am talking about.... 

as i am writing thoughts and focusing in on a word for next year- 

she is giggling in my ear and telling me that words is silly and has no place in art.

and so.... i am still contemplating my word for 2018. 

will share soon though.

here is to 2018 and the start of another year and all that that fresh start brings.

happy new year!

sidetracked..... {underpaper- whoa}

was totally supposed to be doing something else (like sewing), but the underpaper on my counter kept calling to me.... begging me to come and look and enjoy.

the colors and texture were so good; organically magical as only underpaper can be. 

happy wednesday.

not completely sure why i think this is a holiday card other than the time of year it was

tea bag {art}

tea bag....

delicate; fragile'ness of mediocure translucency....

oh how i love working on you.

you present a whole 'nother layer of creative issues to contend with. 

  • remove itsy-bitsy staple to open bag- check
  • very carefully opened the bag to remove the tea without completely destroying bag- check
  • gesso bag without tearing- no check; tear one huge hole and another small hole- drat
  • use masking tape to repair- check
  • glue down collage- mostly check; did require additional gluing

happy wednesday.
