for the birds...

My bird journal was returned from Stampington the other day. 2 of the pages are in the current issue of Art Journaling magazine but I thought I would share a couple more here.

I will start with the front cover. This started out as a piece of thin cardboard cut from an old gift box. After several layers and a few different techniques it's been tranformed into this:



The letters are made from sculpey clay, alphabet stamps, acrylic paints, inks and glossy accents.



I won't post every page from inside but I will share a couple of my favorites ....





and lastly, you can't forget those beautiful (yet sometimes contrary) blue jays


I hope you will take some time today to notice the birds around you and, as always, 
 thank you for stopping by .....

a fun treat in the mail this week

I was excited this week when I received my complimentary copy of Somerset Art Journaling in the mail. I had 2 pages from my bird journal published in this edition - my first time in this publication.

More exciting is that my friend Terri Kahrs has a wonderful 5 page article in it as well filled with lots of eye candy and talk of vivid color - it's great! Fun to share the experience...
