Where are you going?

This is the reason that song "Turn Around" (see previous post) has been running through my head for the past two days . . . another challenge from Paper Whimsy! The butterfly wings are made from a phone book page painted in pink sparkle paint by my niece Grace.

  1. Diane, this is gorgeous! I so admire the handcrafters of this world. I'm afraid that apart from some drawing and painting my work is mostly digital. In my case this is probably a very good thing because I am messy and have a reputation of being dangerous in charge of glue, paints and scissors. I have the reputation of being the worst gift wrapper-upper of all time and I think I am the family joke!!
    I love the textures in your work and the colours are just beautiful.

  9. Diane, I agree with Chrisy's remark about wanting to run her fingers over your pages. I hope everyone enlarges it because there is so much beautiful detail and texture to die for! The butterflies are truly scrumptious. This is a stunning piece of art. Standing ovation from me!

  10. I just noticed I was logged in as a Muse when I left my comment (above). This is just to let you know a Muse by any other name could be a Bev!
