Honour Nature

This is my work in Heather R's book. I spent a lot of time placing pieces and then taking them off. I also spent a whole day doing the background -- and then I found a piece of wallpaper in my stash that is exactly the same. Go figure. Those are lavender branches from my garden. I managed to rescue some before the snow came. I strengthened them will gel medium and then gessoed them a bit.

It is so pretty Martha.

We just finished our Thanksgiving dinner and everyone is sitting in front of the tv watching a Christmas movie. I wanted to say 'hi and have a wonderful holiday season'.

It's a good thing I didn't know you had lavender in your garden or I would have snuck in at night and raided it!!

see you this evening.
