halloween card

I had fun making these halloween cards for my grandson and his brother.  Used my versamark stamp pad and a bunch of cutouts I picked up at Tuesday Morning.  So easy and fun.

new studio

Although my husband is not thrilled about it, I'm moving to the dining room.  So sick of being in the smallest bedroom of the house.  I've created a beautiful view out back and now I will get to enjoy it AND my family.  Picked up this great rug at Cargo Largo yesterday.  Going to empty the tonsu and FILL it with art supplies!


Not one of my better pages but fun to do.

purple blue background

This background is really pretty.

Journal page

Note to self.  Do not saturate your page with liquid water color.  It will ruin your last page.  Tried to gesso and repaint.  Still messed up.  So, cut some dictionary paper into petals then glued over HUGE purple splotches.  Repainted flowers.

witch hazel

I had fun altering these airline liquor bottles.  I printed the labels from a free site, did not make them myself. Finished them off with a little beewax to seal.


This old calender inspired me to play in my journal.  I like this page much more than the last.

This one of those pages that just doesn't quite work out so you just need to turn the page and start over.  That is one of the great things about journaling.  Just for practice and fun.

DeDe inspired

I've been watching Dede on her stream.  My first attempt of pen and ink over the Tim Holtz background.  Mine isn't near as pretty as hers.  She used Dylusions.
