It was so coincidental when I read Lori's post at http://www.elviestudio.blogspot.com/. She had just finished making some paste paper and I had done the same thing about a week ago. I had not made any paste paper for several years and that I tackled it in my small kitchen is nothing short of a miracle. I mixed up two shades of blue and one shade of yellow/gold and mixed it together. Then I used my pasta tool to make marks! Nothing like grabbing whatever is handy in the kitchen! I put the paste paper on a sheet of white Bazzil card stock and the first one I made buckled so the second one I pinned it to my art board. Notice the small holes in each corner of the sheet.
After it was dry, I used it to make the covers of a little book and did a stitch binding using ribbon.

This is something I made for my friend Karyn who lives in Spokane, Washington . I did not want to put it up on my blog until she received it. Our Spokane Calligraphic Guild, Scrips and Scribes, is doing a themed journal this year where everyone puts a page into everyone else's journal. Technically, I am not taking part in this project but I could not resist doing a page for my friends who would appreciate it.

This is my blog for January 28th. I liked it so well that I had prints made of my original artwork. The artwork is torn around the image and then mounted on mat board, suitable for framing. I am giving one away to you, my faithful followers. Just leave a comment on my blog and I will draw on Monday. In the meantime, have a happy weekend.

This quote has been resting in my quote notebook for years and I have always wanted to letter it. I guess now was the time. It has so many beautiful ideas for imagery. It was written by Pablo Neruda and goes like this:
"And I, infinitesimal being, drunk with the great starry void, likeness image of mystery, felt myself a pure part of the abyss, I wheeled with the stars, my heart broke loose on the wind." Thank you so much for all your nice comments on my blog. Appreciate you~
