We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
"Little Gidding"

Are you a logophile?

logophile (noun) - a lover of words

I'm just in time for the latest Paper Artsy challenge, which is all about words.  I've recently come across "bleeding art tissue" - Eileen Godwin has done a video about it here.

I'm using watercolour card, and I cut some hexagons out of the tissue paper, then laid it on the card and brushed some water over the top.  You need to wait a few minutes, then remove the tissue, and the colour remains. Added a few spatters too!

I've also used my all time favourite Paper Artsy quote stamp which is by Artistotle. This stamp is quite old now, but has had a lot of use over the years.

The dragonfly is a recently bought Sizzix Bigz die, which comes with a texture fade embossing folder.  I cut it from a piece of Dylusions sprayed card and used some gilding waxes too.

Happy Bank Holiday weekend!
