Cute Canvas

I've had some canvases in all different sizes from Blick's that I've been wanting to do something with. I literally have them as small as a cracker and as big as a mirror! I pulled a couple out and made some gifts for friends. I made this particular one for my friend Valerie because she liked the doll head image and she likes birds. It was fun to make so I made one for another friend Kathie. Tomorrow we're heading to Pt. Richmond to take an advanced altered book class that we've been looking forward to. I've been wrapping up year end at work so I'm in desperate need of a creative escape from all those numbers. Have a great weekend!!

She Might Love Lipstick Even MORE Than Me!

I had to blog this pic I took of Grace tonight. She never misses an opportunity to rip off one of my lipsticks when she has the chance. She will NOT hand it over no matter how many times I ask her to, and in the end she ends up throwing it instead as if to say "if I can't have it neither can you". It's hard to look at that face and not laugh. Have a great week!!

Beach Memories Class at MDW on March 22nd

Here is a sneak peek at the Beach Memories book I'll be teaching at My Daughter's Wish on March 22nd. The front has a gigantic authentic starfish that's been given a HEAVY dose of glitter. It was fun to make and I can't wait for this rain to stop so we can head to the beach for some fun and photos to go in it.

I'm working on my projects for next quarter that will hopefully include a mermaid collage, a dressform with a collage inside of the hollowed out torso and possibly a mixed media found objects shrine. I went to a flea market with the fam this past Saturday and we found LOTS of great finds that could inspire future classes so check back. Have a great week!!
