Layers of Meaning at PaperArtsy

Hello all!  I'm delighted to be over at PaperArtsy this evening, sharing a pair of tags as part of the Words theme.  As you'll read if you hop over there, I've been playing with layers of paint and ink to reflect the layers of meaning I love to unpick in language.  It's not always what's on the surface with words... sometimes you have to look beneath.


I hope the sneak peek will tempt you to take a look at what I've been up to over there, and for now I'll wish you a very lovely weekend, and hope to see you soon.  (In fact, I'll be back almost before you know it!)

Words are but the vague shadows of the volumes we mean.  Little audible links they are, chaining together great inaudible feelings and purposes.

Alison...these tags are so pretty! I loved seeing their transformation. It makes you appreciate the creativity behind all of the layers and their transition from very cool to WOW that much more. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Alison, just left you a comment on this couple of tags on PA's blog, as I LOVE them of course, they are simply wonderful!!! And about what we were speaking about two days ago, I've sent a message to Beatrice of course... Hope she will answer to you very soon now, as it is in her own interest :) And you so well deserve the guest DT spot!!!! Hugs, your friend Coco xxx

The Theodore Dreiser quote is still ringing in my consciousness as I sit here and try to write something. I love it. It was so brilliantly executed in the play that you worked on NY last fall. I've found myself listening for moments like that again. I've found that gifts like that don't come around that so very often. Off to PaperArtsy ... and I'm on my third cup of coffee. Such a wonderful Sunday of rest, wandering and wondering. -- ME
