Frank McCourt will be missed

his story telling was so incredibly moving. He seemed ageless, I didn't even realize he was sick...

Will be rereading
Angela's Ashes
Teacher Man

luckily I have 2 on CD with his narration. Wow, what a huge loss to those of us who wait for our favorite authors to create more magic for us...

anyone else read his books?

Hey carolyn~ Thanks for visiting my blog... the color inside the leaf is alcohol inks. you can get them at michaels or online..a little tidbit I picked up after checking out some etching on etsy....not sure if I like the color,, the outside border of the leaf is colored too, but obviously not quite enough.. :)

oooh I meant to add it was easy because I experienced it at the studio, in a classroom setting, not at home like you have done! :) I'm intrigued by the colors you have in your leaf! The etching in the studio was really the acid eating away a specified area for a raised relief...I like the idea of adding color as you did!!!
