Hello Friends-

Sharing a project I created with the 49th and Market Spring Parade, Wings and Things and Scents of Nature. I had these lovely papers, florals and embellishments saved from my days with Scraps of Elegance. 

I am getting my feet wet scrapbooking again. It's been awhile and I am loving it!

Sharing a layout that I have reconstructed. You know when you thought you look back at your pages and think what???
Well maybe you don't but I do. So here is an update on this older BoBunny page that I added more flowers, stamps, and string too. Changed out the photo as well.

This is up for grabs in my etsy shop. :)

Hello Friends (if I still have any left in blog land!)

It's been a hot minute since I created a scrapbook page or been involved in the scrapbooking world.
I  guess you could say I have been on a 3 year leave of absence. I am now dipping my feet back into the water. I did not get rid of a single scrapbook supply but haven't really taken a peek at them is sooo long. Now it's like shopping in my studio! How fun! Except I found that a lot of my pastes and texture products have dried up. Trying to find a way to breath life into them since they are mostly brand new!

Below I am sharing a renovated page. I have been going through old pages and redoing them, bringing them up to date and more to my current style. I created this page originally for Scraps of Darkness or Elegance and tore it apart, changed out the photo, added more flowers and stamps, and oh some embossed chipboard. I hope you enjoy!

I still love the punches and you know what, I am going to use them when I start a brand new page. Who's with me?

Thanks a bunch for visiting me!
Have a great week!

My Art These Days

Hello Blog Friends,

It's been awhile since I have posted anything. I've taken a break from the scrapbooking world in order to pursue my true dreams artistically. I've been taking on line drawing/painting classes for awhile and now have started taking them in person at a local studio.

I'll just share a few things I've been up to in my online classes in case you don't follow me on facebook. :)

These first two sketches are from an online class I am taking with Lauren Rudolph called Collaged Reflections. I've just been focusing on the sketching part of things at the moment. If you are looking for an excellent drawing skills class this is it. Lauren really teaches you how to "see" like an artist.

I've been taking a class with Kara Bullock called Charcoal Like Mad. Also taking Let's Face It 2018.
These are some practice sketches in charcoal practicing hands.

You can see on this last one I used grid marks for my guides and didn't erase them yet. Using a grid is a tool artists use to get everything in the right place. I'm starting to need this tool less and less. Last year when I took Let's Face It 2016 my grid marks were 1 inch blocks. Now I'm using them mainly when I am practicing hands that are detailed or a figure to get the proportions correct. When I'm just drawing a face I'm finding I'm not needing it as much unless the face is at a difficult angle that I can't get right.

Finally these are from a class with Annie Hamman (my idol). This class is called Close Up Workshop. This focuses on drawing and painting and learning to do expressive loose work.

The first one is a collaged background with a very loose drawing on it. I added some acrylics.

This one is a sketch on music sheet paper. 

That's what I've been up to for now. The in person class I'm painting a still life. If it's decent enough I'll share it when I'm finished. :)

Thanks for stopping in! xo
