Paste Paper Part 2

Remember the paste papers I showed the other day? Well I have since added more color and design to them. I am having trouble seeing the initial design that I combed onto the wet paste paper with all the added stuff. So I think if I were to do this again, I'd either not comb any design in and stamp and stencil like crazy, or do the combed design and then add minimal design after so that you can still see the combed textures. Did you follow all that?

The second photo down is the fabric piece I painted along with the paste papers.

This morning I was outside doing my usual chores (feeding kitties and birds, changing water for the kitties and birdbaths, etc.)....and noticed that because the skies were overcast, it was a good day for some photography. Here is some design metal bench.

...and my flower pot/planter/container/whatever.

Oh, and then as I was walking out farther into the untamed areas of our property, I happened upon these wild flowers and thought they were sooooo darling. They are the tiniest things. I love how the unopened flower buds have a pink cast to them. Their foliage looks sort of like evergreen needles but very soft.

Thank you all for your visits to my little blip of cyberspace. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'm off now to the studio, which is in a total disorganized state as I haven't been very good about putting things away lately after completing a project.
