LOVE IN THE EARTH ~ PAINT PARTY FRIDAY WEEK 10 YEAR 3

TRAMPS IN THE WOODS



"SHE MUST SPEAK TO YOUR HEART.
THE WOODS AND FIELDS MUST MELT INTO YOUR MIND,
 DISSOLVED BY YOUR LOVE FOR THEM."

~ JOHN BURROUGHS



Finally back, but behind on supper , that's okay, just needs warming and M is taking care of  the ( CORNISH PASTIES I made yesterday ; )

I'm so sorry for the delay in posting the art work but it's been a busy hospital week for me…three times in. Okay, enough of that and to something very special or more accurately to more special things O,O

Once again, so sorry for the construction zone. Bare with me as I add notes to the pics I just uploaded.


This week I have three art works to share with you , two of mine and one of my daughter's, she is my guest artist this week : ) ......and whenever she decides to create art i will happily show case it.

#1  Old Book Treasure ~Annabelle ( Anna)

#2  Canadian Copper Penny Stamps ~ Pennies for your Thoughts ~ M (Emma )

#3  Blue Bird Mixed Media Painting ~ Annabelle ~ (Anna)


NOTE...TO APPRECIATE THE DETAIL IN EACH PHOTOGRAPH JUST CLICK TO SEE THEM IN THE ORIGINAL LARGER FORMAT .....oh and here is another tango for you to enjoy while reading this post



*******************************************
P.S. WHEN EVER I HEAR THIS MUSICAL PIECE I CAN'T HELP BUT THINK OF THE SCENE IN " SOME LIKE IT HOT " WHERE JACK LEMMON ( DAPHNE) IS DANCING WITH JOE E. BROWN ( OSGOOD FIELDING THE III ) SUCH A BELLY LAUGH....LOVE THE CLASSICS!!!



Not too long ago,  I came across something quite magical, something that encompassed some of my big loves; books, specifically very old books, crystals and stars and of course our natural world.
When I discovered this art form , I just had to give it a go and began the experiment. …last Tuesday.
Talk about wishing I listened more attentively to my high school chemistry teacher.
Anyway, I had done something similar before about some ten years ago so I did have an inkly of an idea how to approach the work and of course hubby gave me the ultimate info I needed to make it work out….Thanks dear, much appreciated .
Well , it worked and I am still working on the ratio of water/crystals/& time.
I have to say this precious little book is turning into one of my very favourite art works I've done to date aside from painting.But this in a way is painting with water , colour and salt .

Once I am happy with the size of crystal formations , my next step will be to research on how to harness this beauty for a duration of time besides locking it  into a photograph.
As you can see I am in need of some guidance in taking an exquisite photograph ~  a true likeness of this beauty : )



Next week I will have  a summery of my experiment.




EVERY TIME I'M PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY TWINKLING STARS




ANOTHER TWINKLING STAR , THIS TIME INSIDE THE TURNED PAGE ON THE RIGHT.

I REALLY LIKE HOW THE PAGES TURNED OUT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BOOK, A CARAMEL COLOUR. NOTICE THE CANADIAN PENNIES  ~ ENLARGE THE IMAGE TO SEE WHAT M WROTE ON THEM.





I THINK SHE IS MAKING THEM INTO BOOK MARKS AND PENDANTS ,THEY WILL SOON BE POSTED ON MY ETSY SHOP SITE











THE FOLDS OF THE PAGES WERE NOT AS DIFFICULT TO CREATE AS I FIRST THOUGHT, AFTER ALL IT IS SUBMERSED IN WATER.









OH , HOW I LOVE THEE.......

lOVE IN THE EARTH AND
IN THE WOODS AND FIELDS... NATURE
FOLLOWS (ME) EVERYWHERE

Annabelle O,O

**************************************

AND THEN M SURPRISED ME WITH ONE OF HER NEW ART CREATIONS....PENNIES FOR YOUR THOUGHTS......HEAVILY INSPIRED BY " DOCTOR WHO "
M HAS TURNED THESE CANADIAN COPPER PENNIES INTO WHIMSICAL LITTLE KEEPERS OF ONE'S INNER THOUGHTS.
SHE METAL PUNCHES THE WORD INTO THE COPPER PENNY, AND THEN PAINTS THE WORDS WITH SHARPIE PERMANENT MARKER.
THEY ARE JUST SO DARN CUTE, FUN AND LUCKY PIECES OF TIME. I'LL HAVE TO THINK OF ONE SHE CAN DO FOR ME O,O

BOOK MARKS AND PENDENTS FOR STARTERS


A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS, OR TWO OR THREE ; )







A PENNY SAVED ULTIMATELY MAKES A GOOD KEEPER OF THOUGHTS



WE'RE ALL STORIES IN THE END




BE BACK IN THE FUTURE



LIKE A NAME IN A FAIRYTALE , TIME





UNIVERSE TRAVELER

BLUE BIRDS MIXED MEDIA



BLUE BIRDS MIXED MEDIA PIECE I'M PRESENTLY WORKING ON.
I FOUND THIS SKETCH AT A NEARBY THRIFT STORE AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD WORK PERFECTLY IN DOING A MIXED MEDIA PIECE WORKING FROM TRACY LYN HUSKAMP'S BOOK "NATURE INSPIRED". I PAINTED THE BIRDS A LIGHT BLUE , SOME OF THE LEAVES AND ADDED OLD WEDDING LACE , MAYBE A LITTLE BACKWARDS IN THE STEPS BUT IT ISN'T REALLY POSING ANY PROBLEMS AS YET : )









HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE POST, PLEASE DO POP BY THE OTHER ARTISTS PARTICIPATING IN THIS WEEK'S PAINT PARTY FRIDAY

Love your little mixed media birds! The lace is a great idea. Maybe you could fill the nest with little pearls and treasures, now that would be cool! Thanks so much for your sweet comments earlier :)

Gloria said...

Hello, thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I was fascinated by the "crystal" pictures although not totally understanding what they were all about. But wonderful photography. I like the way the light changes as the photos continue down the page. I love your bluebird sketches!

Starry, originally uploaded by Zsaj.

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

* ~ Twilight at Sea ~

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea


The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
