Extra Special

Of course I love all my babies. I wouldn't have created anything I didn't love...but you know there is always one or two that is extra special to me in each collection.  Ones that if they never left home I'd be fine with it.  I like knowing that they nestle close to me in the drawer while I work.  Ones that if they ever left home I'd pretend I barely knew them and didn't love them any extra.  Here is one of those.  Below is one of those from this Seascape collection.  There is something special about this little rock with a perfect white rosette perched on it.  Can you imagine happening upon this specimen in nature?  The matte silver pronged setting is soft and undemanding too but not lacking in interest and intelligence.

Hmm, maybe I should do an Extra Special Don't Leave Home series from now on...

Collection Archives 2004 and 2005 part II

These are the last of the contact sheets I made.  I didn't make one of these with most collections.  Here are 2004 and 2005.  Click to enlarge.

Collection Archives 2004 and 2005

I was just organizing and deleting files in the large and unwieldy ads/graphics folder because I realize I was afraid to open it due to the frustration and confusion of past attempts.  I came across many contact sheets and other ads/graphics pages of designs I had forgotten I made.  I remember how much I was into each one of these groups and collections.  I see how ideas had naturally worked through their courses over the years and collections.  I will be posting some of these past work.  Click to enlarge.

A Tumbler Page For Me

I started a Tumblr page to display the collages I put together for Anne Maa Designs banners, business cards, postcards and the like.  I make these because I need to but it's good that I enjoy making them now.  Ray's photos of my work are amazing and magazine quality to say the least.  Go look and you'll know what I mean.
