doesn’t this fallen magnolia pod look like a painting? i can’t wait to make that happen.
i cleaned out my enormous paper cabinet this week and reacquainted myself with some of its luscious contents. i have a sudden need to cut & paste.
it’s overwhelming actually.
my mixed paper book is taking shape.
so here it is. just a glimpse into various objects and activities this saturday morning at moss cottage.
here’s my new “bathroom door.” brought back from guatemala where it was hand woven and embroidered. i added a few patches of guatemalan textiles…
i especially love the hand-mending that was already on this piece of fabric…
i added a heart. by hand. then i realized i didn’t have the werewithal to hand stitch ALL of my patches. endless admiration for the embroiderers, hookers and stitchers of the world.
i finished construction my new sketchbook journal!
i’m going to begin adding more paper to the insides and will share proper photos in my next post.
a bit of pineconery from a recent walk.
i spotted this monarch on yesterday’s walk
as you can see i’m up to my eyeballs in rich images to draw and watercolor into my new journal.
there is a creative world spinning in my head that i must honor.
i also honor and stand in solidarity with france. i hope these recent attacks don’t make it more difficult for the syrian refugees in search of safe homes….so much to think about. and while i think, i will be busy cutting, pasting, drawing, and watercoloring my way through the day.
hope you’re well and safe and happy.
