E m b e l l i s h

I created a small book out of watercolour paper 
that I wanted to add small embellishments to

The book seems to explode 
when I remove its small wrap around cover

Each page has a small embellishment on, 
and I have shared a few of them here.

( Opps - a dirty thumbnail -  I was soldering some jewelry right before I took these photos)

Rocks With Birds

More rocks with birds have joined my collection. 

I had some questions about whether ones I made earlier were for sale
And yes they are and these are too.  


$9 - $12 (Canadian dollars -  which isn't doing too well lately)
Shipping:  $4 - Canada -  $6 - USA - $8 - elsewhere
(add $2 if you want more than 1 rock)
If you are interested, please leave me a comment or send me an email.

Bouncing Around

Lately I have been bouncing around a lot lately in my creative making.
Here are two more collage and scribble pieces I created. 

I really enjoyed creating these.... 
but I seem to enjoy creating many things, 
and sometimes wonder if I need to focus my creation making more
so I am not bouncing around so much.

I have always loved books 
books to read
books to write or draw in
just a love of books

I have especially fallen in love with making 
these type of soft covered books. 

The cover is made from layers of fabric and paper that I glue together,
that I decorate with paint, pastels and ink
and finish off with a light layer of paste wax.  

The pages in this one are made from old posters 
that I sewed together to create
beautiful feeling pages.  

I feel some more of these might show up soon.

So many ideas swirl around inside my head, 
and I was very happy when I had some time to play with this one.

I played with a mixture of collage, ink, pastel, paint, and scribbles.

How freeing to scribble with  no worry about whether it turns out or not.
It was after all just some time to play.

And then a bit of playtime on the computer.

Dreaming of Flowers

Winter is long in my part of the world,
and it will be a long time before we have any flowers blooming. 

I have been missing them.
So I found a photograph I had taken 
of some wild roses covered in snow
and made a little display of them. 

flowers in the winter
are now not only in my dreams.

Drawing Challenge - Water


Water for miles around here is still frozen
which influenced my creative interpretation of 'water' 
this week's drawing challenge theme.

Birdlike Scribbles

I have a new little accordion book 
to share with you.

It is made with a bit of collage and paint 
that I drew some birds and botanical bits over top of

and is decorated on both sides.
