Hello Again

Hey folks... sorry I have been missing in action once again. I so wish that I could be more diligent and write everyday again but I don't seem to take the time to do it anymore. Since starting my You Tube channel and working on projects and videos for it I have found it more difficult to take the time to sit down and type a post here. But I will continue to stop in here and post a catch up video from time to time - I will aim for biweekly for now and perhaps weekly. So now lets catch up!

Scott and I have taken a couple walks at Furman University; a GORGEOUS campus with beautiful gardens. I would have loved going to that College. Here are a few of my favorite photos that I took as we were walking around.






SEE.... isn't it GORGEOUS?

Of course I have made a "few" things since my last post as well.
A Bow card I made from a template I bought online for a girl battling bone cancer
An "ATB" = Artist Trading Block I made this block for a swap on Facebook. What was even more special is it went to a gal that also received one of the Winter ATB's that I made in December so she has the start to a collection of my work. GRIN! The little gnome had the CREEPIEST black orbed eyes and I repainted them so he looked like he had REAL eyes. He looks a LOT more friendly now. I really love how this ATB turned out. Very much SPRING themed and she loved it!

"Mixed Media Mash Up" cards I created by covering some playing cards I found at the Goodwill Clearance Center in West Columbia a few years ago and then I laminated them so they would last forever. I learned about this "game" from Stacy at Pinkpoodlecrafts on You Tube; it's a card game to help you with your Art journaling when you get stuck on what to do. You can also "play" with a friend or two if you want. If you click on the link it will take you to her video explaining Mixed Media Mash Up card game/challenge.

I created this box to hold my cards out of a Honey Nut Cherrios box. I love how it turned out.

I am in a group on Face Book called Studio AB See and the organizer put up a challenge in March to do something inspired by Piet Mondrian, a Dutch Painter born on March 7th. So I created this little canvas and made it into a magnet to put on the refrigerator here at the Cottage. This month she has put up 4 different Artists and I am hoping to do 4 little canvases... but we will see if I am successful later as one worked with Neon lights and I am struggling with how to incorporate that into a tiny canvas... these canvases are only 2" square that I am making into magnets. Talk about a challenge!

More to come in my next post as Blogspot is giving me ISSUES.

  2. I see what you mean by how beautiful the campus grounds are! And you certainly have been busy with those projects.
