Buddhas have a calming effect on me and so I have several. They are on the patio in the house and garden too.

This page has already transformed quite a bit so I will have to post some new pictures. ;)
For my next book I work on my patio table on the deck and lay out ephemera and found objects to check out possible designs.
I have painted these pages with gesso and fiber paste and then layered on acrylics and topped it with walnut ink. I LOVE walnut ink!!!

After walnut text was added with stamp and ink white stamp pad. I also put a letter stencil over the top and took off walnut in with water to reveal the colour underneath.
