I always know I'm going to enjoy whatever I find at The Altered Page. Love the scratchy grunginess.

Seth, I really enjoyed your interview on "Creative Therapy". It is always an inspiration to know more of your art story.
This post really speaks to where I am. It is always a little scary to go into the unknown, but your art directive helps! Love the composition.
Thanks so much for your comments on my blog. You are such a dear!

Your theme is so on target today as I make a cleansing process of things and clothes I have held onto for too many years. If I have more room to make my art in a more organized space I will feel a sense of relief. Fear made me hold onto an idea that I might need "something" the moment I get rid of it. Your openness and model of free textures have helped me to move forward into Peace. I give you my gratitude in the creative inspiration interview. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen

So pleased you used that grunge! Lovely blues.
Good to read your interview the other day.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I must start layering and scratching. Your art has that "look" I love and aspire to achieve.

Another beautiful piece. The old key is just lovely.

Dale said...

this looks great. I really like the different tones of blues, yet all sticking to the same general hue. Great work!

The Weaver of Grass said...

I like the textures you create - and the blueness, Seth.
With regard to creating art works from the bundles - can we embellish with other things or must we stick to what was in the bundle (I would like to use my bundle as the basis for an art work) - or does anything go?

Seth, this is so cool, with the key. The text is perfect. Lucky recipient!

Thank you for your loyalty, my friend.

Exposure takes risk. I am willing....

The longer I looked at this piece, the more I saw and liked of course. Not suprised someone snapped it up so quickly. Good decision!
