A Mini Piece of Art

Meet Isabella, isn't she a little darling? She is another image available from Paper Imagery Designs. The great thing about these new image sheets is that each sheet has different sizes of each image. I enjoy working in any number of sizes from inchies up to 5 x 7 so this works out well for me.

And if inchies are your thing well there are also inchie images sheets.

Isabella is a 2 x 2 piece I did today. I'm thinking about turning her into a soldered charm.

If you haven't already checked out the new Paper Imagery Designs site your missing out. And if you have already been there you should go back and look again. New image sheets have been added. New embellishments have been added.

A new Forum is up and soon there will be contests and challenges posted to the forum. So go join so you can get in on the goodies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Busy Art Weekend

I have been a busy bee this weekend. I finished up a 5 x 7 canvas board I had been working on last week. At one point I really was stuck with this piece so I have a great feeling of satisfaction now that it is finished and I am happy with it.

Check out Princess Emily and let me know what you think. Her royal image is from Paper Imagery Designs

My next little project for the weekend is piece using Bella. If you read my previous blog post you might remember that I said I had a few more ideas for her.
This is the first card I have made in years. Bella was perfect. She is another image available from Paper Imagery Designs I am so happy with the quality of these image sheets. They have added a bunch more to the site. I can't wait to get a couple of their new inchie sheets.The grand opening sale is still running!

Here is an atc that I recently made. I just love the eyes of this little girl. On this atc I placed a butterfly for her to stare at. I've got a few other ideas where I plan to use her.

More Art Book Pages

Here are a couple more pages that I have finished. I am not real sure of the correct terminology, whether I am making an art book or an art journal. When I think of an art journal I think of pages that are collaged but also include some type of journaling. I don't do that. That is one of the reasons that I quickly lost interest in scrapbooking. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I find it too hard to express myself in that way. Then I start trying too hard to work my page elements into something that goes along with the journaling. It ruins my creative feng shui. I know some of you will understand completely.

If as I am working on a piece I get a feeling or some meaning comes across then I will try to fit some kind of text into the piece. This works much better for me.
