I Heart Macro

Another one of my kaleidoscopes.  They are so much fun to create!  I just love the way the turn out.  I had some printed and they look fabulous.  I have to set to work framing them.  I am very pleased to say that I am the featured artist in a small art show.  It will be a busy week getting all the photos framed and ready for the show.

Journal Page Week 29

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.   Is the quote by Lao-tzu this week.  I like the idea of breaking down large tasks into smaller bite sized steps.  It really works well for me when I start to feel overwhelmed.

Work in Progress Wednesday

I stamped some leaves on the one tree and I am pleased with the results.  I am wanting to do something else for the other tree.  Still the same challenge though.  If I stitch it will go through to the cover.  I am enjoying the challenge and enjoying that it is forcing me to think outside of the box.  Pondering what to do next can be fun.

I heart Macro

Oh!  Doesn't all that glorious color make your heart sing?  It does mine.  I have so much fun creating these kaleidoscope photos.

A little different for me

It is good to break outside of the box every once in awhile.  I created a fabric book with animal print fabric.  I do love a good animal print but don't often work with that color scheme.  Here I have stencilled trees onto one of the pages.  My instinct is to add stitching since it is a fabric book.  However, the pages are sewn together and that means the back of the stitching would show on the next page.  Yuck.  So now I ponder what next?  More paint?

Art Journal Week 28

Never regret anything that makes you smile.  Right!  Good advice.

This page has some marbling done it on it.  I added a border with watercolor crayons and the butterfly I colored with a bit of sparkle.    Sparkle always makes me smile!
