Norway Maple

Norway Maple. 11.5 inches by 11.5 inches. Paper, block print, glass beads, cork, vellum tag, netting, grommits, norway maple seed pod.

Call it assemblage, call it mixed media, call it whatever. This is the first time I've used grommits on paper and I have to say that I'm a definate fan.
The whole shebang is mounted on black cardstock, and at some point in the nebulous future I'll go and get it framed. But for now I'm doing tutorials out of volume seven of Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. I should have something to show for it next week.
I love that magazine. It's a summary of just about everything I've wanted to learn how to do.

This weekend we're having 4 houseguests...all of whom are going to be coerced into celebrating my birthday. Which is Saturday.
(Hooray for me)
