the little pretzel sticker was from the package of pretzels we received on one of the flights home in the afternoon.
i am still waiting for just the right thing to add to the inside of her dress and around the nest. i just don't know what that is as of this moment. and honestly, if it stays as it is i'm ok with that too.

commissioned journal

i was recently commissioned to create an art journal for someone. i was given some ideas of what the person receiving the journal might like. it really enjoyed myself when i made this journal over the last few days. i find preparing the pages to receive the art is the most fun for me. i love to paint with my hands. that's right - no brushes were used in making these backgrounds. it's so freeing to me to smear the gesso and paint around with my fingers. i love how un-technical that is.
