IN THE GARDEN OF LIFE........


I know, I know, it's sounds really corny, BUT, you know me! It flashed in my head and it wasn't going to go away! Anyway, that's how I feel you know, that each one of us is a bloom to someone else....as corny as that may sound, it is beautiful, and positive, and that should be enough. I made this using scrap paper, woodless watercolor pencils, graphite pencil, rubber stamps, and vintage mother of pearl buttons. The girl image is from a rubber stamp collection by Catherine Moore, owner of Character Constructions. Every time I make a new piece, whether it be mixed media or jewelry....I think I have bloomed.

What a great saying! ( I don't think it's corny) I think it is also a great inspiration for a necklace.
