Personally I just ADORE pop-ups of any kind and Karen's pop-up card is just ADORABLE. I love the way she has several different layers coming forward and the leaves on the tree! Well done girl!

fold it FLOWERS

In the process of preparing pages for the aforementioned online class, I made some COOL paper flowers based on some files made by the talented Ms Penny. There is definitely a trick in folding these little beauties and I didn't have enough fingers to begin with! However I kept on going and with a little help from the video here the penny (Ha, ha- no pun intended!) finally dropped! It really is quite easy, once you know how. Isn't that always the trick though? I didn't end up using the flowers this time, but know they will end up on something special soon. Thanks again Penny.

Playing with Paint and Paper

Been busy preparing for my ONLINE Art Journal/Mixed Media class. So much fun playing with paint, paper, crayons, stitching and embellishments. Kind of makes me feel like I am a kid again! LOL I missed out on going to kinder so making up for it now.

This page is using gesso, washes and various other techniques along with some of some rose art. Very SHaBBy I think. LOL
