Mixed Media Monday--"Something New"





A New Birth and a New Blog

Last year, a dove built her nest on the wreath on our front door--what a surprise!

Months later, after the babies were born and weaned, they all flew away, however, the bird’s nest remained.

When I heard about the “something new” challenge, I decided to use branches from the nest to incorporate into this journal cover...

It is made from batik fabric that has been stenciled with gesso. It includes soy silk and fibers, as well as commercial embellishments.

To reach this challenge, please go to:

Please scroll down my blog as I have 2 drawings going on right now and winners will be chosen on July 15,2010! There is a "Paris" tag you could win AND a French Beauty necklace!!
