    Ever since I can remember I have always believed in the interconnectedness of everything. So when I came across this Pueblo Indian saying in Way of the Doll: Art and Craft of Personal Transformation by Cassandra Light, I couldn’t help but feel a journal page needed to be created.

    "It takes every single person..."

    I decided to use my recycled journal, and created this double page spread using acrylic paint, moulding paste and a linocut stamp. I added the quotation by cutting up a digital printout of it, glueing it down then adding paint, stamping and permanent marker to help it to blend into the page. Did I mention that I printed it on yellow paper?

    And talking of blending…

    "It takes every single person..." blend

    …I just couldn’t resist the digital kind!

    Patchwork Doll!

    Continuing with my doll making addiction, the other day I got an urge to make a patchwork doll! I adapted the pattern from Elinor Peace Bailey’s book Mother Plays With Dolls … and Finds an Important Key to Unlocking Creativity, and decided to have a go at hand painting a face…

    Patchwork Molly

    …and this is the result! She’s very colourful and rather playful! What do you think?

    Being me, I couldn’t just leave her like that, I had to try adding her to a digital blend!

    Molly Blend

    Do you like her in her new setting?
