Blooming Tuesday - Lynn's Page

Here is the front of the page I did for Lynn's Book. Since Lynn is a master seamstress I got the ole sewing machine out and did a stitch or two for her. This page depicts the giving heart of all of us and each lady is holding in her hands things she loves as I see it on their blog since I haven't met any of them in person. I have a bee and smiley bead, Joss has a zebra and Snuffles in hand, Suki has a house and basket of flowers, Mim has fish in each hand, Caroline has a palm tree and the sun, Marianne has Sjimmie and ying/yang, Lolo has a raven and flower w/butterfly, Katy has a cat and flower and Lynn has a sewing machine, thread and thimble in hand. Each lady has her initial as a necklace. The beaded jet stream shows to which lady their books go to. The blue object in the middle represents the world. There is a seed packet and a dove of peace on the world.


It was so heavy I glued it to a heavy watercolor paper. The back has a Haiku I wrote along with some stamps and watercolors.   There is a California Poppy on this side hence the Blooming Tuesday connection.

If you would like to see what the Traveling book is all about you can go here.  Happy Blooming Tuesday.
