I thought you may be interested to see how this last one started. On this eco-dyed paper I've penciled in where I saw a house and chimney, and a billow of smoke. The moon is outlined in pen. I wasn't sure if it would work, being shoved over, up in the corner like that, but there was a nice little circle on the paper!

To view Nos. 1-5 go here.
To view Nos. 6-10 go here.

I'm wondering if this may be the end of the street...

  7. I am sure this is not the end of the neighborhood. It is going to become, very quickly, a desirable place to live! I predict the architect will be flooded with fairy requests for more wonderfully individualistic designs and she will, after a short hiatus, be compelled to design more extraordinary buildings for discerning fairies of all stripes! People will come from all around to find pleasure and soul-strengthening joy as they walk the streets. Don't rush the neighborhood, but don't neglect it either!

    1. Haha Jakki! I think you may be correct. Without doubt, there are more houses in my future.

    2. I wonder if you get tired of words like "fabulous", "great", and other superlatives that just lose meaning after awhile. So I LOVED Jakki's comments! My own thoughts were more that how your mind works in so intriguing...moving from "wonky" streets to a fairyland...here in the north words it is mushroom time. Am thinking I need to do a mushroom series. Because mushrooms seem like little structures from an imaginary place...they come in the night and are often not there long and come in amazing shapes and colors!

  9. Soooooooo delightfully charming, Margaret!! You have inspired me to create something similar, perhaps a mosaic of 3, for my 8-year-old granddaughter who loves art and loves to tangle with me! Maybe I'll even do 4 sets of 3 to honor the seasons ... oh the possibilities ... !! Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful tiny houses! I love them all. :)

  10. Hi Margaret, I have been following your art on the eco-dyed paper you make. I want to try the eco-dyed method. I will be visiting Florida soon and I am going to collect some leaves and try making the paper when I return. What kind of art paper do you use and how many layers can I tie together and cook? I love all your art.

    1. Diane, if you’re planning to draw on the paper you’ll want to use something fairly smooth. I have some Arches w/c paper I’ve been using, because I don’t do w/c anymore! But Stonehenge, Tiepolo, etc would be good too. Definitely rag paper, no wood pulp. I generally stack about a dozen sheets, but it would depend on what will fit in your pot.
