A Message From Me To Me

Usually I’m eager to share, but this painting had me struggling a bit. Truth be told, I have super mixed emotions about it. In fact, that was sort of the point of the Lifebook exercise. Freely putting paint, ink etc. down on the paper and seeing what emotions emerged. I did the background rather easily, […]


Collage Craziness: Part 2

So you may recall from the last post that I was in a collage frenzy. I felt so inspired by my renewed love of collage that I started working on what I hoped would become the cover of my latest journal. In the end I decided not to use it as the cover, but there […]


Collage Craziness: Part 1

Two weeks ago I  was in a collage frenzy. If you have been with me for awhile you know that I dig collage…almost everything I do has at least some collage component. For some reason though I always felt compelled to fill the whole page and quite frankly I was becoming a bit bored with […]


Happy Little Flowers

Playing around one night with water color pens and a spray bottle… Just some happy little flowers to brighten your day. Enjoy! I’ll be back tomorrow with some collage craziness :)


On Muses and Finger Painting

Well hello there! While I have been terrible about updating my blog,  but I have still quietly been creating in the background :) Lots to share with you so I’m going to spend the next few days trying to get caught up on posting. As you my remember, I’ve been participating in LifeBook 2013. One […]


Cracker Box Canvas + Solid Gold

Okay, not really solid gold…but gold leaf. Yep, I gold-leafed a cracker box :) This originally started out as another “secrets type” of project made out of a cracker box (you can visit here for info on that project.) But it quickly became evident that this was going to go in another direction. I completely […]


Cracker Box Canvas + Secret Messages

This is the story of how a lowly cracker box became a canvas and eventually a collage… This is a really easy technique and works very well if you are planning on doing some collaging or if you are painting and don’t mind a little texture under your design. First, you cover a box (I […]


The Good, The Bad, The Ugly: Pop-Up Journal Page

This Life Book exercise was all about letting go, not feeling the need for things to be perfect. Getting a little wild. I loved this project, but of course I did not follow the example precisely. Lately I go where ever a piece leads. My theme (as it emerged) was more wild abandon, being free, […]


Heart Sick?

I debated for awhile if I should post this. I really did not intend originally for it to be a “dark” page, and certainly I did not intend for it to look like a crime scene. It started off very sweet and then when I got a hold of the red acrylic ink things started […]


More Faces

Using the technique outlined in my earlier post, I did a few more faces. I have been calling these “cheat” paintings because the paint goes directly over a photograph. But I am learning that it takes more to make the painting actually come to life, a real attention to detail; and I love studying the […]
