Here are a couple shots of the notebook. It is written in two languages and full of medical potions! So love anything old and paper. I remember as a kid finding an attic in an abandoned farmhouse full of old letters. My cousin had to drag me out of there.
Help me out readers. What language is that? Looks like German to me.
Check out my goodies from a sale today. The black scarf is a mourning veil! Got a deal on all this stuff. Love the square nails and fish hook. Also got four fruit crates in excellent condition. The pens are dip pens.
The elusive Blue Morpho. Me and a million others were in pursuit of this shot of the Blue Morpho. Thanks to my zoom lens I got the shot. Click on my flickr slideshow and see the rest of the butterfly pictures.
Here are the tools I use to make my mandalas. The brass ashtray is my largest circle. I start with it and then use the larger cd to find the center. Trace around the center and outside. I then put the small cd down for another row. After that I use the fiskers circle stencil and all the other little stencils. Fast and fun. Use a pitt pin indian ink fine for the outline, then color with water color pencils and inktense pencils. Background is water color crayons. I'm using my mixed media journal here.
