A little lost girl

It all began with a piece of watercolor paper and a small photograph of a little girl. She looked lost to me. So many layers later...using inks, acrylic paint, zig zag on my sewing machine and rubber stamps....she's not lost anymore. She found a place next to me.

Saturday Afternoons - Craft Time!

Taking a small 6" x 6" x 1" book and gluing all the pages together - then cutting a rectangle on the top page so I could insert an antique brass frame with an old photo...once the inside was completed, it sat in my studio for days. The ideas just weren't coming. It usually takes a graphic paper that gets me started and that's what happened this afternoon. Then a ripped piece of music, a French page from an old book and I was ready to do the cover. When I found a card that my friend Sheila sent me, I knew "this was it!" The roses and the Eiffel Tower became my focal point. Then a little ink from several ink pads; some calico checks. The inside is very simple.
