Page one was something I had on my mind to try – weaving on paper, but with ribbon instead of more paper. The idea is fantastic and the results are really nice, however, paper (especially magazine paper) can be so flimsy and that can lead to some frustrations (and the glue gets everywhere…ugh). I think I may attempt this again, but with flimsier paper adhered to card-stock or something to provide it with a bit more weight and substance to weave on to.

Page two is a charming watercolor painting of moon symbols. I’ve been experimenting with celestial symbols and icons and these were an extension of that.  I do adore watercolors and their dreamy qualities.
