Learning more about the sea.

Ruth, thanks so much for my third page. It is stunning! It was waiting for me this evening when I got home. I was so excited when I opened the package and found this gorgeous piece of work.

Ruth chose the following quotation for the back:

"The sea, once it casts it's spell, holds one in it's net of wonder forever."
- Jacques Cousteau.

The whole page is beautiful. I just love the detail in the structure of the jellyfish.
To cap it all, Ruth has sent me a wonderful hand made card.

I shall leave you to read her description of the piece of work. (Just click on the photograph and you should be able to read the words clearly.)

Like Ruth has, I have learnt a lot from this page. She speaks of the environmental concerns regarding the growing numbers of jellyfish. Something I had really not even considered.

Thanks so much Ruth. I really feel that I have a lot to learn about the sea, even though I had chosen it as my theme. Perhaps this is something I could use when I start to compile my pages into a book. Definitely food for thought there..................


  1. awesome jellyfish!! great detail!

  2. Mandy - I'm so glad you liked it.

  3. Absolutely beautiful, especially that we all learned something from one piece of art! I think this is the great thing about making something using someone else's theme; it stretches us in all kinds of ways.
