Still Playing

I am enjoying the challenge of working in this fabric journal.  Since stitching will show through on the next page it isn't really an option.  It is giving me the opportunity to play with surface treatments.  I was inspired by a lovely blog comment to treat the left tree as a fall tree.  I stamped leaf shapes with foiling adhesive.  After waiting for it to dry I applied some transfer foil in golds, red and copper.

Journal challenge week #30

All who are creative, in whatever way ,is doing something important to the well being of this world.    I agree with this quote.  We may not always like all the artistic results but we still make the world better by our creating.  This journal page is way too busy for my liking but I still had fun creating it.

Work in Progress Wednesday

I am calling my bead journal for July finished.  I am quite pleased with the way it has turned out.  I think  my bead journal for August is going to be done on a doily as well.  This has a lot of potential!

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.
