  5. OMGoodness, more stunning pages, Rebecca! Love the orange and black dotted background, and the butterfly shape is great! I look at these pages, and all the zentangling, and think "how many hours went into these pages???" You are providing one terrific journal of inspiration for all of your students (and followers!) to soak in and be inspired by, sweetie! Love, love, love it!!!

  12. Who'd have thought that something so wonderful could be created with simple doodles and a pair of scissors!!! You've created magic, Rebecca! I adore Ingrid's work and have been following her for the longest time. Your butterfly book is AMAZING! Thank you for the honorable mention, but your work has FAR surpassed my humble little bookmark!!!! Hugs, Terri xoxoxo

  16. Rebecca; The funniest thing... just yesterday as I looked at your 'raining daisies' journal spread I honestly had the thought in my head, "hmmm, I wonder if Rebecca has done anything with butterflies?" No kidding! Then I opened your newest pages and look what I find! I saw Ingrid's butterfly pages too and just love them! I think I am going to have to add this to my list of things to do - AGAIN! LOL. Thanks for the ongoing inspiration Rebecca!
    I also often wonder how much time it takes you to make all these lovely pages! Your zentangles alone must have taken you hours, days even! You are one talented chick!

India

Meet India, she is such a treasure! I made from a tea cup I brought back from India last year. She sits 6 1/2 inches tall. The base she sits on is a beautiful square plate I found in Crate & Barrel that matched the tea cup perfectly. India has been embellished with fabrics I also brought back with me. Her hair is a combination of wool and acrylic fibers and she is jeweled with brass accents. India has henna patterns on the souls of her feet and around the tops of her arms and sits in this peaceful position as she meditates. She's waiting to sit in your home and bring you peace.

Meet Mable, she's trying her best to keep her skin glowing. She believes in nourishing her body from the inside out but once a week a good facial mask and cucumbers on her eyes make all the difference in the world. She stand 8 inches tall and would love to sit on the side of your tub or on your dresser. She could spend hours in the bathroom! * Mable is an original one of a kind decorative Art Doll and not meant to be played with as a toy.
