Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile. We're not quantified; there's no chart of desire. When the roaring flames of your heart have burned down to embers, may you find that you have married your best friend. [Steven Tyler]

Finished Art Work

On the left is a sample board of techniques which resulted in the canvas above.

The canvas features an image taken from a photograph of the heron on top of the fountain outside Graphicus, together with bird feathers, yarns, mosaics and images (by Elusive Images) stamped onto tissue paper and adhered to the canvas.

The canvas (below) features an image transferred by gel medium from a photograph of a stone carved fountain (photograph courtesy of Glenda Waterworth, thank you Glenda). Images again stamped onto tissue paper, stencils, metal embellishments and dried flowers by Joanna Sheen complete the collage.

This is the result of my shopping expedition last weekend. 'What a Stash'! Haven't started anything yet as I have several projects underway and a whole load of work to do for the
trade show which is coming up in February. Me thinks I am going to be very busy!
