"Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time."
~ Deborah Chaskin
Materials used: fabric, paper, metal, embroidery floss, lace trimmings
Note: all photos were taken under artificial light, so the colors are a bit skewed. I just couldn't wait to share!
When Stephen's asleep, I get busy at my craft table. Inspiration doesn't happen all the time but when it does, it's usually between 9 p.m. to midnight. Tonight my muse stirred me to do some late night art journaling!
Birches are appearing in my dreams again. I love using analogous watercolor to capture a simple row of trees.
Materials used: watercolor, fluid acrylics, french text, gel medium, gouache, glitter
Sometimes I don't write anything down on my journal spreads but I feel that I'm still telling a story through the images I paint. A forest landscape, a bird's nest, a butterfly, trees, leaves, wings......these are powerful, personal symbols.
