Something to Crow About

i love this little tease from a trade i will be hostessing soon.  finally i worked on a panel i am pleased with - many techniques, reuse of previous work, lots of ephemera. this part is an add-on representing a window.
i used peltex, fabric photo paper, a vintage photo of girl and window, decorated stitch, a plastic buckle, and a beautiful pearl button, a card stock crow and the background is repurposed fabric colored by drippage of crayons. more to come.  i feel i am finally working with layers. hurray!

AJ love day

Dirty Footprints Studio is celebrating Feb 14th as Art Journal Love Day by having a giveaway party.  create your own love.
and here is my crazy page of - Love Is Blind - StOp TaLkINg
one thing i learned from 21Secrets - if you mess up just paint over.
so i tissued paper over my mess-up and kept going.
i wanted her to be glam but instead she's more outlandish.
i love that i kept working on her until i really liked it!! weird -

Rosebud & Question Doodles

this rosebud doodle is a reminder that out of death so much life can come.  my fil's rosebush in my side yard.
from one single seed came three wonderful sons,  they are in full bloom. so much life, so much vivaciousness.
i don't question God, but struggle to hear Him speak clearly.  its not Him but me letting go of clutter. Spiraling
