Hard to believe that summer is flying by so quickly! Completely amazing! I hope all of you are enjoying summer fun, good times, and lots of the beauty of nature. So much inspiration can be found all around us if we take the time to notice. I could probably spend a month of Sundays trying to get that purple shading and flow and nature reproduces it flawlessly time after time.
Here are some of the things I’ve been working on since my last update.
A good friend had his 70th birthday party and was his usual serious self–of course I had to memorialize the moment.
It took all my restraint to keep the layout masculine and relatively unadorned. I framed it and gave it as a gift to he and his wife.
Switched gears from scrapbooking to some mixed media work on the canvas cover of a mixed-media album. I used gesso mixed with modeling paste to do my bricks. The frame and corner pieces are resin covered with black gesso and Inkagold. I made this project at the Swirlydoos art camp in June. The class was taught by Design Team Member extraordinaire Rachel Moses. I love my framed worry doll!
My goal this summer has been to use up items in my stash because it seems to reproduce exponentially when I’m not looking. This layout I used some strips of fabric to make my ties along the top. I used some gelli plate printed doilies, ribbon,and stenciled glass bead gel.
I have more projects to show next time. See you soon and thanks for visiting today!
