Some Journal Pages

These are some pages I had done for Milliande's Art Journal January. I used Artist's Loft Watercolors (in the tray) and an Extra Fine tip Sharpie Marker for 3 of the pages. I'm still playing catch up on the rest of the days that were covered. I'll get around to it eventually LOL.

The header for my blog here was the spread I created in the altered baby board book for Tam's Art Heart and Healing workshop.

Art Journal Love Party Page

This is a journal page I worked on for Connie's at Dirty Footprints Studios "Art Journal LOVE Day Party!"

She's giving away some fabulous prizes. Stop by and check it out...there are so many amazing people participating. Go on...check it out!

A Few Pictures Finally!

Finally got batteries for my camera. But I've been under the weather these last few days and haven't taken any new pictures. Need to start somewhere though, Right??

My current project is altering cigar boxes. I had 3 laying around the garage and I wanted to do something with them. These are those thick cardboard type ones. The un-done one has some damage to it, not too sure if I can or will work with it yet. The gesso covered one will have a blue base too it. And the purple one, well I'm not sure yet. I'd like to do some collaging on it but come to realize I don't have much to work with. I feel a Michael's trip coming on to scavenge the clearance racks. I HATE to pay full price if I don't have too. :D I really want to do more of these types of boxes, maybe wooden as well or instead of these. I just don't know for sure where to find them.

These are some bags I've been crocheting. They are big enough to hold a standard Tarot card deck. The bags are about 6 inches tall or so. They can be used as a small purse, for holding gem stones, cosmetics. I was thinking of putting them up on Etsy.

Like any artist, I worry whether they are 'good enough'? Would they sell? And a host of other questions that race through my mind.

In the next post, I will show a couple of my journal pages.

Pictures Soon

I hope to have a few pictures up in the next day or so of some things I'm working on. As well as what I've already completed.

My camera isn't cooperating too well at the moment. Okay I need batteries and I am pushing the ones I have to try and get every last bit of power left in them. At best, if I can't get anymore juice out of them, I'll have pictures up by the weekend when I do get some batteries.
