mini books

As you know, I Love paper!  I really get a thrill from making mini Piano Hinge scrapbooks like the one on the bottom of the photo.  I make all of the frames, tags, pockets, all sorts of stuff and the Bower Bird in me just has to add a whole bunch of sparkly items as well.

The larger ones are going to be my “look books” to take along when I create outdoors when they are finished.  They will contain photos of my available Art and Jewelry Items.

I saw an episode of how to make “Piano Hinge Scrapbooks” on Scrapbook Soup  which featured Joe Rotella as seen in this DIY youtube vid and I was hooked!  Julie McGuffee is the best host!

This Spring has been super busy!  I enjoyed going to Ripley’s Aquarium earlier on and of course took lot’s of photos for future paintings.  I also barely averted this catastrophe!

I would like to share two publications that my artwork has been featured in.

Inkwell Workshops  with co-founder Kathy Freidman put together their 2nd annual compilation of Poetry and Art .  They chose my piece “Resistance” as the front cover–so elated!  The Launch is this June 21st so save the date!

In partnership with Workman Arts  Issue #2 “The City a place of acceptance or adversity?” On Line Publication has been released. Kudos to Mike Baichoo for putting this together!  They chose two pieces that I created for the front and back covers: “The Mighty Vibrance” and “Encroachment: The City of Life”.

I will end my Spring with this:
