Back from vacation in Vermont, back to school, back to a quieter house and a lot of laundry...

In the meantime, some favorite shots from my travels:

Out of the Blue for Chrysti

Well a while back I played an Out of the Blue art party/swap with my dear friend Pattie, who sent me an amazing art frog, and I sent her an arted up purse...and then I asked two friends to exchange with me....and they asked two friends...etc and so on.

I sent Kelli her piece a while ago, but Chrysti's had me stumped. I got so far, and no further.

I stalled at that point for a few weeks.

Ah, but today....At last the barrier in my brain came down and the piece made itself known.

With a message on the door:

And open:

I am so happy I will be able to send it at last!

Putting it out there...

Well, I did it...I sent something to Somerset Studio for consideration. I don't know why this was so daunting, but I decided I could no longer wait to be discovered, hahaha. So I created this wall clock for a call for "green" themed items. Sure is green, huh?
I created a tutorial to go with it, which can be seen here.

Skinny book pages

Starting to rev my creative engines for the skinny book project Chrysti is coordinating at the Altered Abbey. Here are some background pages I have started on: watercolor, acrylics, gesso, pearl ex powders, embossing powders and UTEE on watercolor paper.
Here is a close up; I love the way the UTEE beads up so that it looks like rainwater.
