Altered Mixed Media Journal Cover

I haven't made a mixed media project in quite a while. I saw that Prima was having a PPP (Prima Product Picks) Challenge for March.  So, I decided to get back into mixed media art by altering a journal cover. I used Prima's Mood Board for inspiration. I raided my Flying Unicorn kits for Prima products and this is what I created. I hope you like it!

Going Doll Crazy!

I've been having quite a few good days lately, so I have been playing with my new Julie Nutting Dolls. They remind me of playing with paper dolls as a child and surprisingly, I'm having a lot of fun creating them! Here are a few that I've made.

Artist Trading Cards - Butterflies Make Me Smile

I haven't updated my blog since December, due to my health. I have been lucky to have some really good days lately and wanted to share some of my recent work. Here are a few ATCs that I have made recently, that I've titled "Butterflies Make Me Smile." I have a series in Blue/Green and in Purple/Pink. I hope you like them!
