dreaming of summer canvas page (created by hand "insects"


We have had lovely hot weather recently in the UK and I wanted to do a canvas page with a light summery feel. I have painted the background with watercolours and have added some stamped dragonfly and bird images to the sky. Embroidered and button flowers add layers to the page over stamped tissue paper. The quote is by Proust and reads "the voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
