Mary Flower-Miniature Candy Book.

Size: 1' X 1". Little pockets to put in the candy.
I made about 8 little books. This one was a gift.

Mary Flower- My Art Tree Journal Page.

This is called "The Sound of a Tree" based on a poem written by that name which I have carefully put into the trunk and branches of the tree. This was just to remember my dad's Poetry. He was a very good poet. I am still not sure if I want to add some large word for the title of the poem.

Mary Flower-Little Leather Fairy Book.

Made from an antique Very Small Leather Book. I think the book is about 100 years old. I added some gold and elements and took the  "inards" out and made it into a little fairy book. The new pages are made from hand painted water color paper and glued back in.

Mary Flower Hand made Sewing Art Journal

The cover is made from a Christmas LED box. Then I bound it with buttons and a tiny pair of scissors. I used every thing vintage that I could get my hands on that had to do with sewing. I think there are about 90+ pages with pockets and emphemera, old patterns, hand made tags, pages from and old Singer Sewing Machine manual, old cards, letters and lots of pockets and tags.

Mary Flower - Art Journal Page.

Another art journal page. I called this one "The Pattern is my Imagination". I really like the colors and textures in This. It is another two page spread in my Dillusions (Large Journal) Art Journal. 

3-D Resin Mixed Media on Masonite by Mary Flower

This is not quite finished yet because I want to put a white picket fence at the bottom but I am waiting for inspiration about it. But this is very 3-D and I love the shiny thick look with 3-D items embedded into the different sections. This was a fun experiment. 

"If Primitive Paper Art Dolls could talk"

There are moments when I just want to get sort of crazy and fill the page with silly stuff. This is one of those times. Some of it would not make sense to just anyone. Some of the stuff is "inside jokes" but still the ridiculousness of the page is still comical, depending on your sense of humor.
