Pressed Flower Bookmarks, Healing Mandalas

Pressed Flower Bookmarks by Janet London of London Hummingbird Arts

This is the season for pressing and I have been gathering many spring flowers.  The middle bookmark here is composed of flowers I found in the works at my friends house in Jacksonville, Oregon.  The other two bookmarks I made out of flowers I already had.  I am preparing for a home sale that Jannie Ledard, Glass Artist, and I are planning in May or June.  We had a home sale at my house last year and it went well.  Our work is complementary and it is fun working together.  She makes beautiful fused glass jewelry in addition to other things.  I will post more as we get the plans finalized.April Free Download at London Hummingbird Arts

On April 2, Saturday, I taught a workshop at the UCC Church in Medford, Oregon on “Art:  A Spiritual Practice.”  I provided mandala designs from different faith traditions and had people select one to color and interpret.  An 8 year-old girl attended this adult workshop with her mother.  Much to my surprise she created her own design entitled “Calmness.”  She drew it after a meditation I did on “Inner Stillness.”  I posted it in my mandala store as a free download.
