Going Backwards

Finally finally,
 I feel in the right frame of mind to go backwards with my life! 
I am returning to where I started. 
Mix media.
 Making handmade books and fiddling
with all sorts. 

Such a sense of calm has descended on my life, 
with much more focus. 
Time to play again. 

The working title will be 

' back to the stars ' 

I am so looking forward to creating on paper again.


  1. I can't wait to see what you do, Anna! I used to make little books, too. You have inspired me to do it some more~~~I wish you much joy as you go *backward* ; )

  2. oooh yay yeepie !! I really loved it when you worked on paper & cherish all the prints I have from you ! I can't wait to see what you'll create !

    is that fountain pen one of your WIPs ? I so adore it ! It would look so nice for stationnery !!

    oh btw, I meant to ask you how you managed to "cut" your post so that it doesn't appear entirely on the page ?

    wishing you & yours a wonderful Easter weekend, my friend oxoxo lots of love !

  3. can't wait to see your creations. yes, sometimes we need to go some steps backwards. I might do that, too. (some calligraphy?)

  4. You're looking forward, but going backwards. Sounds like you've got your creative head on :0)
    Have a great Easter.

  5. i always smile at how much you and i are alike! i go back and forth between fabric and paper, too.....and one of these days i'll finally figure out how to use BOTH of them at the same time!!! hee hee
    sometimes going backwards is the best way to go forwards. your letterforms and illustrations are SO sweet.....and perfect for your little books! have lots of fun playing!!! xox, :))

  6. I'm so exited, Anna. Happy Easter.

  7. Have a great adventure!

  13. Thank you all SO VERY MUCH for your very kind comments! It has been a while since I have been arting and farting about, since I have been so busy with the shop and every day life. But somehow it did not feel right to not fiddle. As if something BIG was missing in my life. I am so looking forward to showing my messin' about on my blog, and I am so grateful for yous being here. Thanks!

    Thank you for your comment :) I am afraid I am not quite sure what you mean with the post not disappearing? Please do email me. Would love to help if I can x

    Have fun going backwards yourself. Do. You are a wonderful artist, and you do lettering so well. Can't wait to see it all on your blog x

    Thanks so much for your great comment. I love seeing how you express yourself so well in all these different ways, and how you inspire to create. Such a joy! x

    Thanks for your comment! I have been fiddling for the longest time, but there is a post here on my blog that explains how I got into making the tapes, which was just by chance that I thought of it... let me see if I can find the post..... :) x

  14. Your handwriting is so beautiful - you must use it!

  15. How I love paper and stationary! Have a wonderful Easter Monday!!

  16. As a mixed media artist my first love has always been paper.I am happy for you and your journey."One day you finally knew what you had to do,and began" Mary Oliver.
    Warmest Regards,Cat
