Stuck and Unstuck

Last night wanting to create but not knowing what, I relied on a tried and true “jump start.”  I have a tin filled with cut out words and phrases from magazines.  Often a poem of sorts happens, sometimes a word/phrase becomes the title for artwork.  Last night, the poem thing happened.  I had made some inchies before, also hoping they would spark off some ideas.  In the end they all came together as a journal entry.  By some synchronicity, Created by Hand’s challenge (“Tuesday CBH challenge on the blogroll) today was “nature”…so here is my entry:


"The Birds of sorrow found the universe open and gathered"

The bird stamp is from Ink A Dinka Do, butterflies and birds and there is an Ink A Dinka Do stamp from the gemstones and jewels set on the inchies.
