Tuesday Trigger, Blog Friends and Apologies to FLW
I know. I said I was done with fall leaves, but a perfect storm of events put me temporarily back in the mood.
1) This week's Tuesday Trigger has those beautiful pink leaves (we have a few of them around our neighbourhood). Against the dark wood bowl and the lighter table, the colours really captured my imagination.
2) I received a package of this die cut from Joyce. When she made this card, I loved it so much, I went right to the Lil Inkers website to order it but it was sold out (it's now back in stock, of course!). When I mentioned this to Joyce, she immediately (and very generously) cut a bunch of them in white (so I could colour them) and sent them to me in the mail. Thank you Joyce!
3) As I started to play with one of them, it reminded me of Frank Lloyd Wright's Trees of Life stained glass design:
This design was really my first introduction to FLW many, many years ago. Even then, I was attracted to graphic, geometric design. Since then I've been to Taliesin (Wisconsin), Taliesin West (Arizona) and Robie House (Chicago) - still a few to go!
