Combining fine art rubber stamping, mixed media techniques and paper crafting,these are art forms that I love to share. I like the idea of learning together -- sharing what I learn and learning from what others share.
Tomorrow is my grandniece's 15th birthday. Of course, she's going to be 15 going on 42! I thought I'd make a quirky card to lighten things up. And this card couldn't be any more of that. That crazy bird was colored with colored pencils, as well as the hat. The hat was covered with Glossy Accents for a little dimension, as well as a bubble at the top. After stamping the bird, a stencil design was applied using Memento inks. I stenciled after so I could see where the bird was t
Sorry for the absence the last couple of days. When I left a card class at Art 'n Soul on Saturday afternoon, I was driving to a memorial event and about 1/2 mile up the road my head pain came in with a roar! It was all I could do to get home.

Thus, the quick and simple card. Magenta Stamp: Bohemian Flower 85.008.O Rosie's Roadshow Stamp (sentiment) Copic Markers: YG06; G14; G43; YG17; G
It's the first day of March. Based on the stormy weather, probably one of the worst of this winter, this might prove to be quite a month. Instead of being tucked away in my studio, I was out in it. At one point, I was drenched to the skin from the sudden downpour that immediately followed the loudest clap of thunder I heard inside the noisy restaurant. Not surprisingly, Hannah was sound asleep inside the the car, snuggled in her pet bed. Returning home, I just had to do somet
