the final single page. i love birds and nests and eggs almost as much as i love hearts. played with the gesso resist again and the crayons and some stenciling for "fragile". rub on letters for the other words. i labeled the eggs for clarity. i hope you like it, Patty.
this is about as scribbly/doodly as i get. again with the hearts. they were my starting place for this one. i did a bit of gesso resist and played with my water soluble crayons and found a typewriter-like font and put a couple of little list type things on there. sort of a downer, but i hope not too much. the words are sort of down, but the picture is pretty, yes?
i looked through a somerset studios publication (don't remember which one) and got inspired to do a heart on a white gesso background type thing. i love hearts and would use them in every spread if i didn't think it would bother other people after the millionth one! it reads, "love gives you wings."
the first page of the pretty pretty Thich Nhat Hanh calendar journal i worked in for June. all i did was to add the bird. sometimes the art is so beautiful i just don't want to do much to it. i sure hope Patty likes a FAT book because this one is only half way through the year and it is so fat it doesn't even remember how to close.
