"Round Three...Jella's Moly..."

...Jella's sign in pages...
...Jella's pages 1 and 2...
...Jella's pages 3 and 4...
...Lisa's pages 5, 6 and 7...
...my page 8
intertwined and spiralling in connection
with a few of Lisa's green swirls...
...Lisa's page 7 and my pages 8 and 9...
look closely and you can see the edges of each page...
...my pages 9, 10 and 11...
a happily nesting peacock in full zentangled glory...
...and finally my page 11 and my page 12...
where Cindy Michele
will connect with her sequence of designs.
Lastly, how about a peek at some
real life photos taken
just before Jella's book was shipped December 29th.
Jella's sign in pages (above)
followed by...
...Jella's four design pages linking to Lisa's...
...Lisa's design pages linking to mine...
...and my design pages
ready to be linked in the next round...:)
Voila!
Here is a view of the entire book thus far...
it is simply delightful.
And...
I am happy to say that
it is now officially all signed and sealed
and delivered...
(with a USPS confirmed delivery December 31, 2010)
to Cindy in Tennessee.
WooHoo!

I am humbled by this glimpse of such an outstanding book of zen art. The quotes and sayings are almost as inspirational as the art. Vincent is one of my favorite artists too.

It's just stunningly beautiful! So, in the end, it will it go back to Jella? Did each of you start one to send along so you'll each end up with one as in other Round Robins? nancy

Molossus said...

These journals are so incredibly gorgeous! We should donate them to a museum or something so the whole world can share!

I'm waiting until we leave for the coast, to start my work on your journal. I'm letting my muse savor the work, and contemplate the continuation. Then as I listen to the roar of the surf, and the chuckle of the gulls, as I smell the brine, and feel the chill wind ruffling the hairs on my arms--then I shall begin my pages. Aah.

PAK ART said...

Stunning. I don't know how you can send it away. I would want it back for my very own to keep forever.

Carole Meisenhelter said...

oh my! All of this is spectacular; what an artist! Such a quirky face on your peacock too; made me smile.
