Byhand Artists Newsletter Anniversary
Now that I am sure that Suzanne of Quietfire Design has received my entry for the Byhand Artists Newsletter anniversary contest I can show you what I sent to her. I reworked a previous piece I made about knitting on the porch next to the lilacs. I tried to word this piece to more closely reflect Suzanne's interest and I sure hope I succeeded. The words are: "The gentle curve of a wrist. The flash of a pen. The letters flowing from the nib to the paper. The words building on the page. The shade of the front porch. The scent of lilacs on the gentle breeze in June. This is paradise. This is were I am at." I started with coffee stained watercolour paper and printed the lilacs and words on. I then stamped the flourishes with cocoa pigment ink and the Quietfire Design rubber stamp quote with green ink. This was backed with purple cardstock and clipped to the altered clipboard which is in an earlier post.
