Out of my studio

I've been removed from my studio due to renovations. I should be back to normal by June 1st. I miss my creative play time, especially the blog challenges. Then I will start my workshops with Susi Blu and get busy on other things I want to do. So keep cheering me on. Thanks to all my followers..Love you guys. You make my art worthwhile.

Tag Book Pages

This is the project I've been working on. We were given 6 large tags. The theme was 'grunge' and we were to embellish it as we desired. I hope my partner likes it.
I taped the tags together to make it an accordian fold. I really didn't have a theme in mind. I just took each page and followed my thoughts and whisperings. Each page is distressed in some way either with paint or inks. I added pockets for more tags. Then I just embellished it with whatever came to mind. From stickers, to metal parts, scrabble tiles,fibers and buttons. The book just became an art piece, each page a place to explore.
I hope you like it.

My latest project

Are you watching?

I hate to disappoint all my followers by not posting much of anything lately. Every week I make a list of all the blog challenges with hope to create for them and also do the swaps I've signed up for, then I sit and stare at the table, stare all all my supplies, tools, paper etc...and just dream. My studio is getting the floor painted on Saturday so all the shelving units are pushed to one side of the room. I'm feeling closed in, or I should say boxed in. lol Oh...that's an excuse really because my work table is still clear enough to work on.
One of these days all will be back together and I'll feel more like creating. I'm thinking of taking an online art class. I think that will spur me on.
Have a great creative day. See you all soon.

Asian ATCs

Was in the mood to try these Asian Atcs. I love using paint chips for bamboo. Newspaper clipping from Japanese newspaper a friend brought me back from Japan. Also a coin from my Japanese friend. Stamps and postal stamp from stash.
