PP Challenge August 2006 Sea & Sun See bottom of page for list of package supplies


ID: Sea&Sun_Gibran

I only used one of the hand decorated papers as a base.  I loved the paper too much to cover it all up. I used a Liquitex Glass bead concoction with some glitter and put a streak of it running from the upper left corner to the lower right corner in a gentle wave pattern. I glued down a hairy fiber along the glass beads.  I broke open one of the seashells and stuck the little pieces next to my hairy fiber. On the other side of my glass bead line I added some small beads. I attached the hairy fiber to a swivel fishing gadget. I punched out circle bubbles from the bright yellow paper. Added my quote using a nib and Dr. Martin's bleed proof white ink diluted with a bit of water.

Words: To measure you by your smallest deed is to reckon the ocean by the frailty of it's foam. To judge you by your failures is to cast blame upon the seasons for their inconsistencies. Kahlil Gibran

I cut the large light blue paper into wavy strips and glued them to the yellow cardstock leaving large enough spaces to add my quote. I glued down a piece of the hairy fiber to give the illusion of a net and glued down 2 of the seashells and a bead. I added a fishing hook. Wrote my quote with a .005 micron pen. 

Words: Friendship isn't a big thing, it's a lot of little things. The tide recedes & leaves behind bright seashells in the sand. The sun goes down but gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops & yet it echoes on in sweet refrains... For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains. author unknown
