and I'm off...

to spend the weekend at Craft Fancy in Arlington Heights, Illinois...

sorry to my friends at Southwest airlines & Midway airport...Rick will chauffeur me this time!

but I WILL see you next weekend and you can fly me to The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, Tx...

after that I'll spend 3 days demoing at GASC...The Great American Scrap Convention in Arlington, Texas...

at both Craft Fancy & The Crafty Scrapper, I'll be teaching a 2 FULL day mixed media art journal workshop...

we completely construct the journal & focus on technique pages using LOTS of mixed media products like...


to make pages like this...



my most favorite flower in the whole wide world is the red geranium...

poor Rick...I buy (LOTS)...he plants...
they are looking so beautiful now...


the geraniums were the inspiration behind


but... that perfect peony SiSi I used for the art journal page is quickly becoming a favorite flower...
and inspired me to buy some peony's...for you know who to plant...

photos...next year!

thanks for sharing so many fun suggestions for repurposing leftover art packaging...

sharing is good... really good...

especially if you are the random winner...

I have run them through an embossing folder and then 
used crackle paste on them. Pretty cool effect.
