Ebb and Flow

My darling husband showed me how to add the photo of Pat's completed page!
The background is handmade paper decorated, painted and embellished with seed beads (like bubbles). A mini quilt has machine embroidered birds and the organza has "Ebb and Flow" printed. String and fishing line have a tiny brass fish and shiny disks on one as well as a cork and wooden beads on the other.
Water images are very powerful to me. It can take on any form. Liquid, solid or vapor. In the Spring, water rushes, spills, swirls then pools. Constantly moving. I was thinking about Pat and her life one year later.

Hey Jan
That is really pretty. I love the small quilt with the seagulls.
