A little meditation at PaperArtsy

Hello all!  Most of you know I enjoy working on little things (dollshouses or ATCs, anyone?), so I had to be a part of this fortnight's Inchies and Twinchies theme on the PaperArtsy blog.


You'll find I'm in meditative mode, seeking silence with a Twinchie ATB that should offer up a little calmness and serenity in a crazy world.  I hope you'll have time to hop over and check it out.  Or if hopping feels a little to frantic then, you know, just saunter... or mosey... or amble...  No hurry!

Thanks for stopping and hopping (or moseying) by today and I'll see you again soon.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
Lao Tzu

If you don't mind hopping to see the full project...
I'd love to share my meditation cube in the Stamp It theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challlenge - I'm celebrating STAMPtember with my own PaperArtsy word stamps and Seth Apter's minis
And at MOO Mania & More they have a similar challenge to Use a Stamp - done!

Your meditation cube is a wonderful art piece, with cool colours and wise words. We need silence, solitude and time to listen - I am able to practice all three on my walks along the Rhine. Thanks for sharing, hugs, Valerie

I love the embossing. I love how each side of the cube leads you to the next side. and I love the hand on top. What an incredible twinchie box. I really want to touch and feel it, but since I can't I'll just enjoy the incredible photos.

This looks so soothing to the senses....I love the idea of the oxides alongside the embossing powders and metal bits.

As I said over there, I think handling this box must be very hypnotic. Wonderful!

You work looks amazing! Just like you I like to make different things not only cards.
This such a good idea. We do need more silence in our life. Thanks for your tutorial!
You always make so many pictures that makes it easier to understand how you made it.
Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog.

Alison your cube looks wonderful. I love how it's one continuous piece, each side just leads into the next, and we should all take more time to listen. Have a very happy weekend, Sue xx
