Art:Book of Mysteries   36 d  
Eco Art Book: This is my first altered book. It started out as just the cardboard hardcover of a very old children's book, with all of the pages missing, that a friend and fellow artist gave to me. Working intensely for the past 10 days, the hardcover has been transformed into "The Book of Mysteries"
Eco Art Book: ”Book of Mysteries” All art and photos by mayah(c)2015 Top: Front cover; bottom: back cover 6” X 4” I had the little empty cardboard book cover sitting on my art table since last year; suddenly last week I felt inspired to make a book. The book cover was covered with recycled Rhimax paper; the pages were made out of the same, with two sheets glued together to make the pages thick, then sewed together, and finally glued into the book cover. Each 8” X 6” double page was then decorated with a theme and has a ”mystery” to it. Initially, the book pages and bi ...   read more

Art Cards from Photos   53 d  
I took some photos of my watercolor art and nature years ago, had some small prints made, put them away and forgot about them. Rediscovered the photos and have been making art cards all weekend.
Art Card ”Backyard Flower” 6” X 5.5” Eco Art by mayah(c)2015 You can’t see it from the photo, but I put a cardboard cut-out in the shape of the flower underneath the flower in the photo, so that the flower sticks out from the card for a bit of a 3-D effect. Hand embroidery around the flower petals/stems. Made an envelop for this card out of unbleached wax paper--this was stitched on the sewing machine. ”Southwest” 7” X 5” Eco Art by mayah(c)2015 Another art card from a photo of a watercolor design I did years ago; used the sewing machine to punch the holes aro ...   read more

Eco Art Orchid Challenge   59 d  
Finishing my "Eco Art Orchid Challenge", here are orchids #4 and #5. Eco Art Orchid #4, 6” X 8” by mayah(c)2015 This one was fun to do: after embroidering it, glued the photo onto a piece of recycled cardboard and put it on top of layers of colored bubble wrap inside of a recycled plastic container (can’t even remember what was originally in the container--some kind of small electronic some-thing-or-other?). This one is hanging in my bathroom window as a sort-of light catcher. Eco Art Orchid #5, app ...   read more

Liked the photo of the orchid so much, I'm doing 4 more "orchid" art projects! Here are Orchids #2 and #3

Hand Embroidery: blanket stitch around burlap paper edges; backstitch on flower, running stitch around flower photo’s edges. The shades of colors used to embroid ...   read more

Kryon: Simply Being Here   88 d  
Kryon, a benevolent group energy from the other side of the Veil, tells us that it is more important what we are BEing than what we are DOing.

Artistic Pufferfish   5 mon  
There are 18,000 animal and plant species newly discovered this past year. This one is my favorite of the 10 featured in the online article.
The Artistic Pufferfish Scientific name: Torquigener albomaculosus Elaborate circles with geometric designs have cropped up on the seafloor off the coast of Japan’s Amami-Oshima Island, a la Signs , for the past 20 years. Scientists finally solved the mystery—the circles are created by a newly discovered pufferfish. The male pufferfish drag themselves across the sand to create these nests with the hope that they’ll attract female pufferfish. The ridges formed in the sand reduce the ocean current in the circle’s center to offer some protection to eggs that ...   read more
