Art Journaling Class at ESS June 28
Great fun in class and easy technique using masks. Some art journalers completely colored in solid areas outside of masks...I liked letting some color peek through. Enjoyed lunch from the deli with Nancy and Michelle after's always good to catch up on current events. Much to my surprise the Thai restaurant has relocated as well as the Chinese Buffet!
Michelle finally talked me into a Gelli Plate class on July 5...I'm looking forward to this!

Hallelujah! I remembered my password! 
Well, it's only been forever. I signed up for the Documented Life Project today and watched the videos. Whew! I ordered my Moleskien Planner from Amazon and it can't get here fast enough. I'm glad Fran talked me into it.

Michelle did a great job teaching (she's so patient with us) and Fran and Carol were there too. We had a great time and enjoyed a Thai lunch.
Fran, Carol and I stayed after art journaling and took Nancy's "House" class. Nancy was so organized and well prepared. I love the clock tower we made. It was a fun day at ESS.

Here's the final Lace Page Shadow Box featuring my beautiful Grandmother....

I will be teaching this class November 13 at A Scrapbook Store and More in Pt St Lucie...I'm looking forward to it.

October 16 I took a great wonderful fantastic class from Jen Starr in Pompano at Cherry Blossom Studios....will add pictures

I was supposed to be turning in my Altered Book at Everything Scrapbook in Lake Worth on October 16 while I was taking Jen's classes so.....I finished it up and rushed it to them....and here's the finished project.

Here are the "Caribbean" pages I did for Jacqui's book in July.

This one was a real "rush" job for August....Green Aliens.

Not my favorite...I had to use the color green and this is all I could come up with since, as usual, I had to get it done in a couple of hours...I used a lot of Chandelier Glimmer Glam.

Lace Page
I didn't take a picture of the completed lace page in the shadow box but here's the "unglued" work in progress.

I'll get the image of the finished project this Saturday.

A present for Paula B, owner of A Scrapbook Store and More in Pt St Lucie, on the one year anniversary of her store. A new venture is always a "leap" and Paula's is working out great! I love her store and am wishing her continued super success.

Lovely in Lace Altered Book

My first adventure in "altered book" design using my hand dyed lace, Webster's paper, Distress Inks, Copic Markers, a Prima Branch, florist's green coated wire  and self-adhesive pearls...'s some detail...

...the lace flowers were carefully removed from a vintage wedding dress I found in a thrift store and then colored with Lipstick Natural (E04), Pale Pink (RV10) and Pink (RV11) Copic markers.
I wish I had done this in a shadow box!
Here's my first shadow box...
...I did this for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. I printed their picture on fabric then silk embroidered my mother's bouquet, her veil, my dad's bow tie and boutonniere; then I mitered bridal lace over a silver silk moire frame I made and added some embellishments including the cross my mother wore on her wedding day. A labor of love.

Class was a success. I had a great time and everyone did an excellent job. I only have a picture of one finished project by Liz McNey, The Butterfly Box. It’s beautiful and really fits the “quote”. I'm looking forward to receiving pictures of all of the finished projects.
