Art Journaling w/ Decorative Papers & Photocopies: On Video!

Torn Edge Journal Page

"Make it simple. Make it memorable. Make it inviting to look at. Make it fun to read."
- Leo Burnett

Happy Monday!

I've been playing around in my art journal lately, which really means that I've been playing on single sheets of watercolor paper that, for some reason, I've been ripping the edges off of. It's like some sort of paper rebellion - or maybe I just like the look of torn edges waiting for embellishment. Either way, here's another offering - and another video sharing the process. . . . 

I hope you like it! And if you ever decided to try your hand at this tiny torn rebellion, let me know. I'd love to feature it on my Facebook page!

With Much LOVE,

Quick and Easy Gift Tags & Video!

Altered Wood Gift Tags

"It doesn't matter where you are, you are nowhere compared to where you can go."
- Bob Proctor


I hope this little video I created using wood gift tags I found in the dollar section at Target brings a sparkly little light to your day.

Mixed Media "Tiny Homes" with Canvas Fabric & Stamps!

“When you invite people to your home, you invite them to yourself.” 
- Oprah Winfrey

Helllllooooo & Welcome to another Creative Team Thursday!

Today I'm sharing my newest project for the Jessica Sporn Designs CT that was inspired both by Jessica's fabulous Build-a-Villa Stamps as well as some scratchy, rusted tins that I found discarded in the desert. 

I know it sounds strange, but you can pop over to Jessica's blog to make sense of it all. There you'll find details about these sparkly "Tiny Homes," as well as a process video showing how I altered them all. I hope you like it and look forward to playing again soooooon . . . 

With Colorful Kisses,
