Two more Little Snippets


Here are two more little snippets with original calligraphy. You see I like that quote about the artist not failing---well, it's one I have memorized so it turns up all the time. I must get my sheet out and find some more quotes. The images are a hand carved stamp. The larger flowers were stamps I carved many years ago and the other stamp is one that I think went awry--I think it was actually suppose to be dragon flies but I guess they turned into flowers--of a sort.
I like the way this Arches paper tears--if you tear it in the right direction it makes a very cool torn edge.  I am enjoying doing these little snippets. Thanks so much for all your suggestions as what to do with them. I have many little pieces of un-purposed art.

you could put them in a mixed media book Martha - sew them in like DJ does her pictures. Go to her web site and look at the book samples.
