CREATE for Basically Bare

I love all the wonderful chipboard albums available from Basically Bare and the fact that refills are available for all the Artful Binder ones.  Check out what I did with this one HERE.
These flowers were a delight to paint and give dimension with the products from Art Anthology.

P.S.  If you are looking for my altered bottle, scroll down a bit and thanks.

Found Object Redoux

I've been playing with my "Found Object" mermaid in a bottle and, thanks to Beacon Adhesives ' Glass, Metal & More permanent glue, I've added some shells to the outside of the bottle as well as scattering a few on the bottom.  This was the original with more "watercolor" added  and the addition of the shells. 

And this is the version in the "watercolored" wine bottle...

Will keep on 'kicking it up a notch' over the summer and gathering shells from the beach.   Thanks for looking.

Teaser Alert!

A little sneak peak at my mini for Whim So Doodle in St. Pete, Fl.  Have fallen in love with the new G45 "An Eerie Tale Collection" and Whim's has it all.  I'll be mailing the mini album in its entirety out Sat. so it should be in the shop by Monday for sure.


The colors are gorgeous, the design is spell binding and it is never too soon to pick up some fall papers.

Gecko Galz Featured Designer for July

I was thrilled when the owner of Gecko Galz asked me to be the featured designer and could not wait to play with the selected papers and images I was sent.  These are my projects that appeared in this month's Gecko Galz newsletter.



As always, thank you for looking.

Cruisin' to Cozumel (some inside pages) Part II

About a week ago, I did my Basically Bare reveal on my travel journal for an up coming cruise.  I showed the cover and the day by day divider pages here.  Yesterday, part II of my travel journal went live HERE on the Basically Bare blog.  On yesterday's blog, I showed a flip page, a pocket page and ...well, see for yourself.

To see the rest of my reveal, head on over to the blog.  As always, thanks for looking.

Lost in Paradise with Gecko Galz

I loved all the images available  this month from Gecko Galz.  The bathing beauties are so much fun.  This is what I did with just one of the images from the collection and Art Anthology's Colorations spray and Sorbet Dimensional paint.

Cruisin' to Cozumel with Basically Bare

I love the Basically Bare Art Journals and this 6x9 is perfect for a travel journal.  The paper is high quality watercolor and makes for great journaling and doodling.  It takes inks and watercolors beautifully.  
To see the dividers I created for my travel journal, click HERE
While you are there, take a look at the beautiful creations by my fellow design team members.  I'll be posting a follow up to this journal on July 1 showing some of the pocket pages etc. I created to go between the dividers.
