kinda mouthy

The outline is finished.  We took my favorite Nikki McClure papercut, Invest, from her book Collect Raindrops & altered it to add another crow (from Sometimes She Talks To Crows) to the dogwood tree … “two for joy”.  We then took the shapes of her crows in flight (from Field) & arranged five of them around my shoulder cap … “seven for a secret never to be told”.  He finished off the flowers that are cut off at the edge & added a few more to fill out my arm.
I am in love.  We’ve been talking about this piece for over four years & it feels good to finally be on the way to having it finished.  Chucky was so very patient & made sure to do everything exactly as I wanted it.  I can’t wait to fill it all in, but for now … I am pleased.
