something new...

I've been inspired by Mindy Lacefield lately and wanted to draw and paint girls, i actually first did some girl and fairy drawings years ago before i was really doing any journaling and i just feel this urge to get back to it, but the painting of them is something i've never done before and i thought i would use an antique book that i have had for awhile and do lots of practicing in there, and then i also wanted to keep a little sketchbook just for the drawings. Mindy has a lot of art classes on her website and i may decide to take one for fun.

a new type of journal

this new type of journal is a mix of a nature journal and a commonplace book, a place for quotes and other things that i like and also a place to add in some pretty little postage stamps that i just started collecting. Its in a small journal about 5x5 and its been a lot of fun to work in.

working on beaded jewelry this week...

Hello, this week i've been making some jewelry with handpainted wood pendants and some pretty beads. The one on the right has a little bit of a chain link at the top and the one on the left is beaded to the top. They are both 22 inches around and the drop is 2 and 1/2 inches long with a 1 and 1/2 inch handpainted disc. They can be found in the shop here

an old art journal for sale...

i've been looking through my journals and trying to make more room and i realized that i am attached to a few of my journals but there are others that even though i love them, i'm not as attached, and i thought that they could go to someone else who may like to have one.
So this one was featured in an issue of Art Jounaling magazine and you may also recognize it from when i posted pics on my blog, and it is for sale here.
There are 28 pages and its all on watercolor paper sewn into and old book...
