Sand instead of Stamping and Printing this Sunday

Sand instead of Stamping and Printing this Sunday

Sundays is the day I’ve been posting my stamping and printing lately. Today I threw it all over and went to the beach. I certainly left my mark there, however.  We made flower and sea drift mandalas on the beach. Inspired by photos I’ve seen of the mandalas others have made, I decided to give …

Yes or No – Your Choice – Self Care Saturday

Yes or No – Your Choice – Self Care Saturday

Sometimes I say “Yes…” when I want to say “NO!” I’m guessing I’m not alone in this. Today my self care included saying no to the alarm, yes to my pillows, no to moving fast and yes to taking things at my own pace. I said no to the car. Yes to the kitchen. Generally …

Texture – Fashion Friday

Texture – Fashion Friday

Textures – I love them! I once had a boss who was a master at the use of texture and color, for that matter. It was a joy to see the way she engineered her outfits…dressy, but a bit funky. I’d love to dress like that. In the last few years I’ve gone for simple …

Double the Fun with Double Exposure Photography

Double the Fun with Double Exposure Photography

The Double Exposure Love course with Vivienne McMaster has been a blast this week. It was just the creative outlet I needed.  When the class started and I realized that I could use my gelli prints as a background I was entranced. Many a combination of photos included some of my artwork. Experimenting with other …

Double Exposure – Stamping and Printing Sunday

Double Exposure – Stamping and Printing Sunday

I’m doing something a little different this Sunday. On a whim I signed up for an online photography course with Vivienne McMaster. She is very inspirational in her writing and is an encouraging and cheerful guide. Having taken her classes, I can say my eye for photography has grown exponentially, my photos have improved, but …

Books, Books, Books – Self Care Saturday

Books, Books, Books – Self Care Saturday

Self Care Saturday is here and I don’t have a page spread done to share. But hey, Self Care Saturday is about self care and I decided that pushing myself this late in the day to create a spread was going to end in a sad looking spread. So what do librarians do for fun?  Here is …

Upcycled, Recycled, Altered and Improved – Fashion Friday

Upcycled, Recycled, Altered and Improved – Fashion Friday

Of the many kinds of fashion that I find draws me in is re-imagined clothing. Articles of clothing that were once loved and now linger in the back of a closet. Fibers that have worn so well that some of them have worn straight through. Items that were never quite right. When these see the …

Shabby Chick – Stamping and Printing Sunday

Shabby Chick – Stamping and Printing Sunday

Before I started Art Journaling and Gelli Printing my style would probably best be described as Shabby Chic or Boho Chic. I love pastels, lace and roses. White on white on white textiles make me swoon. So I have a sort of style dilemma – a sort of mid-style crisis. For my Stamping and Printing Sunday, I …

Time to phone a friend – Self Care Saturday

Time to phone a friend – Self Care Saturday

I jumped the gun on Self Care Saturday this week and scheduled a call on Friday with dear friend and fiber artist, Cindi Huss. So when I sat down with my journal to do this week’s page, I was amazed to see two faces and two phones staring out of the paper at me. The …
