Very nice, here's my challenge piece.. http://mixedmediaartbypeggyr.blogspot.com/
I promise, Marie, I didn't know your word was Time when I made my piece! No comparison, tho, hands down yours is absolutely gorgeous!
Well, Marie, I really goofed...and being really tired, I looked at your piece and thought - oh, same word! Of course it's the same word! Oh my...I really have no business being up this late and it's quite apparent! But no apologies for my comment because your piece is really wonderful, a visual delight - as always! LynnF
Marie thanks for your nice comment on my work, your piece such a wonderful creation, all the different parts are so perfect together, love your work.Anni
Hello Marie, thanks for your friendly comments on my blog. I was not able to participate in TAKE A WORD this week but will in the future. I love the concept and your debut piece is gorgeous! I just took a workshop this weekend (see latest post on Collagitation) that combined lettering and collage, so the timing is perfect. As an avid reader and a calligrapher, words are letters are very close to my heart. "Small world" as they say, that's very interesting that your daughter in law is from PA! I envy them, living in London, WOW! I visited London several times while living in Germany in the '90s. During that time, my daughter was living in Japan. We returned to the US about the same time, c 2000, she with a new Japanese husband and me without the American military husband who took me to Europe! Are you a native Aussie? I've known several and they all swear it's God's own country down there! Take care, "talk" to you again soon!Hugs,DianeXXXOOO
