The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Got the meat pies out of the way~~

Still busy with Christmas prep and getting ready for company! I am still hoping to get pics taken of my current cards. I made some nice christmas cards with a little sewing detail on them. I really enjoyed creating them using the sewing machine too. I have alot of plans for the sewing machine as a value added to creating cards.. I have some ideas on textures too as I love the 3 dimensional look and I love different textures on my work. Or at least that is what I visualize...
I love color and try to provide it on my work using various mediums. I love Michelle Zindorff's creations that she achieves with her brayer work. I love the Copic coloring technique as well and I am always trying to improve my work there but have not done a true copic course yet. I love using paint, and glitter - especially the glitter you can heat set so that it doesn't come off your work all over. I love heat embossing with stamps and using acrylic paint on chipboard - I love my cricut and all that it can do with it. I love my spellbinders for working on cards and the cuttlebug to emboss for that unique background sophisticated look. I try to think outside of the box with all my tools but that takes muse and time to just sit with various product and just play... more on my cards later.
