I Did It!

I cut into one of the beautiful papers I have been hoarding since 2010! I think I like it.

The inside got smeared a bit with the gold paint. Should I use brown paint and clean it up or leave it artsy?

I finished this little mixed media necklace started in Kristen Powers’ class.
Below is the journal box I am covering with paper made using the Gelli Plate. I am using Martha Stewart Decoupage Glue and Sealer. I like the way it finishes but it doesn’t go as far as a gel medium or Mod Podge and it takes longer to dry.

I am so excited to be taking Bonnie Browning’s Zentangle class on Saturday! I bought Joy of Zentangle by  Suzanne McNeill and Sandy Steen Bartholomew a couple of months ago and have drawn almost all of the 100 + tangles. It is sooo relaxing and much easier than it looks. I am looking forward to taking it up a notch and learning how to tangle on Christmas ornaments. You can see a video of Bonnie's previous class at Ephemera Paducah on her blog.  If all goes well, I will post my art over the weekend.



  1. Personally, I can not see ANY problems on the bracelet. Only the artist will notice their flaws and imperfections. :-) Beautiful work! -bonita
