allnighter~making journals

I went to sleep at 5:30am and woke in a stupor at 7:30 to drive a kid to the bus stop. I painted 4 new 8.5" x 11" journals that will be available at Fabulous Finds and at my free Opus demo as well as at my studio show on November 26 & 27. An all-nighter of pure blissful creating with mixed media.

The original, hand-painted Journals will be $60.00 at the show
and the reproduction 5" x 8' journals will be  $25.00 at the show

all the journals are made with artist quality sketchbooks with acid-free archival paper so you can be confident that you can create memories. the cloth journals come in a few fun colors with an image created by me on the cover. These journals lay flat for ease of use doing full crossover pages. I'll post pictures in my next post

They come through me

Uganda Girl in her new home

that was her last night this is her this morning! I'm so excited about this project.... super fun and dear to my heart. She's not quite done but getting close. I'm still going to add some text and a couple of more embellishments and then I'll give her to her new owner.... hope she likes!

Here she is in her new home, an 8.5x11 hardbound journal, with out any lovely embellishments. I'm just to about to get going on making her all pretty and ready for her owner. She's going to get a neck and other niceties. I'll keep updating!
