Mushroom Brooch

dc134: Hat (Cap)

Just pulling this one out of the hat at the last second today! I thought I'd miss the challenge completely as I was unable to spend a second on this theme. But the first thing I thought of today upon waking was this:

I don't know if I can change the size for you, but for now anyway, you can see a hand painted with crocheted edge brooch that I painted some years ago. It's of a clump of mushrooms and so I thought that CAP might fit in with the theme.

Our beautiful host for this challenge is: TammieLee and there you'll see lots of hats/caps. See you over there. Thanks for coming by today, see you soon I hope, Norma, x

Nest in the recesses of one's heart

NEST [part two] 

 Well, as promised, here is the little book I've been working on with the NEST theme.
I won't bother you with the flaws and my own critique, but overall I am happy with it. I forgot to photograph it closed up and tied. Oh well. The size is just over 1" square [a tiny bit taller than wide.] Saint Armand Canal paper, sumi-e ink stick, watercolour. Thanks for looking! *smiles* Norma, x

dc133: nest

I'm showing you two bird nests that I've done in my artwork in the past. I am working on a little book as we speak but it is drying so I'll wait until tomorrow to take a photograph to show you. Meanwhile, here is one nest project:
It's an a.t.c. that I made for a trade. The nest is of spanish moss and feathers from my budgie bird and contains one small egg. Here's the batch of a.t.c.s being painted for the trade I was in: And here is a flat paper artdoll that I traded. I used to own with my daughter, for two years, a yahoo group where we traded artdolls each month. This doll has a bird cage for a skirt and a resident has come to live in it!!!
So there are two nests I've done. For more nests see Ariane's spot. Thank you for coming by to visit today. I hope to see you again tomorrow. Bye for now, hugs, Norma, x
