{A Little R&R...}

Tax Season is over and I have been resting. 
I'd planned to spend more time gardening and more time in
my studio.  But I got sick (on April 14 of all days) and it has taken more then a week
to get back up to speed. 
Between periods of resting I have managed to create a couple of pieces
of art for
the Mother's Day show.
This purse which features one of my drawing printed on fabric.
and another piece of fiber/canvas art featuring one of
my altered photos.

I've enjoyed exploring these little canvas pieces.  And have been
thinking about creating a larger piece.
More on that to come.

{dreams are in full bloom...}

My garden is coming to life.
Trees and shrubs are blooming and
flowers are starting to poke their heads up from their winters sleep
I'm planting vegetable seeds
and checking out the local garden shops for the newest plant offerings
I've already bought home several new "friends" to join our garden family

{Sneak Peek at Alice Muchness...}

Discovered something new.  Word bubbles
This is just my first attempt at using these word bubbles and thinking about
how I might use them. 
And of course my new Alice in Wonderland Art Journal
seemed to be a perfect fit.
I am already thinking of more words to add
so the finished versions will be different I am sure.
And I will undoubtly use them more than once.

{Queen of Muchness Blog Party...}

I found this while surfing blogs this morning
it sound like sooooo much muchness of fun
I have been gathering elements for a new Alice Journal and this might just be the perfect time to get started.
I so enjoyed making my first one.  And now it is time to create another with much more muchness.
"I'm late for a very important date"
I haven't even seen the movie yet.  Maybe I'll try and squeeze it in this weekend.

{What will I Do with a Couple of Extra Hours...}

Was it all that hard to decide? LOL
I get going with a new project in mind that requires a different size photo
and can't stop till I get enough to print a full size fabric sheet with assorted photos.
Still trying out different layers for a nest and egg photo.
I wasn't really all that happy with how the nest and eggs photo turned out in a previous post.
And was still wanting something in the blues tone but then I got this so I went with it.
I think I have enough to print for now and will turn some of them into
collaged canvases and have others at the ready for art journals
