New mixed-media collage

I am preparing for a local art festival, and, I wanted to try some different things to sell.  Here is the piece I finished today:
In the past, I have always just sold cards, small books and jewelry.  This is a 9 x 12 collage on watercolor paper.  I really like how it turned out.  I think I will do several more for the festival!!
Enjoy your weekend!

First Post on my new blog!

Today I decided that I needed to start a new blog.  My art is taking a new direction.  I am beginning to explore many new techniques.  I didn't maintain my old blog very well.  Hopefully, I will learn to post on a regular basis with this one!!

I begin with my newest adventure:  Art Journals!!  I just completed a workshop online based on the book "The Decorated Page" by Gwen Diehn.  This is a wonderful book for beginning journalists!!   I haven't yet begun to journal daily..........but, I am collecting wonderful images and ideas for when that day comes.

I have also been revisiting art jewelry.  I have created several pieces lately that are very different from my "old" style.  Since money has been so tight, I am really into recycling.  It is amazing what you can do with things that you would ordinarily toss out!! 

To celebrate the New Beginning, I am offering a giveaway!

Just leave a comment and your name will go in a drawing on Saturday, August 29th for this Painted Paper Booklet!  Be sure to leave your email so I can contact you if you win!!  Good Luck!!
