Graceful Pear

I am enjoying working in this small journal. Sometimes it takes a bit longer than 15 minutes although I try to keep it to about that. It's very fun but I think I might start with a bigger one too and see how I do. I love to cut and paste. I always did as a child and I do remember some people eating the paste. Do you remember that? It must have been tasty.

Beautiful! (do I sound like a broken record?) but it's true-I love your art. Yes, I remember the paste always smelled yummy, hopefully I didn't eat it though lol. OH! I thought of you so much as we went over that lovely bridge. . . . maybe next year I could sneak away and meet you for lunch or coffee.

Just lovely! Colors, composition, message....everything.

Ah paste...so delicious it was. Spooned out on a paper towel on our school desks with a tongue depressor.

I just found your blog and your art is amazing. God has truly gifted you! My Mom became a painter after all her 4 children grew up and left the house. She had never painted before, in all her years of raising small children. :) She inspires me today to know that there is an artist in all of us wanting to come out.

I have a question for you ref. to your journals. I began an art journal many moons ago. :) and I was wondering how it really is done. Do you past and glue on the actual pages of the book? or do you do it on a paper and then glue it to the pages of the book?

BTW, I think I will take your calligraphy class. I have always been fascinated by beautiful handwriting.

Oh, thank you for sharing your art and talents with us!! :)

God bless you and keep you in all His ways. :)

Can you hear me cracking up?! I burst out laughing at your paste line. I never ate it, but I remembered why other kids did: it smelled like pepsin (Pepto Bismol to me!). Now I am remembering the time I put a staple through my finger in art class...I probably haven't changed much.

I think with the EPA all the good old taste has been taken out of paste. Love your journal pages. Your colors are always so beautiful together. Happy creating...

Love your pages Martha and your new banner. Are you taking Pam Carriker's online 365? I wanted to take that just to be prompted but couldn't manage it with everything that goes on in my life. One day...maybe.
