This is a drawing I did this weekend. I am taking an online class called Joynal with Jane Davenport. I am still learning how to use colored pencils. I do like her thoughtful look.
This is a handmade book I made this weekend. I used Arches 300lb watercolor paper for the cover. The inside papers are made with Stonehenge white paper. I love the consistency of the Stonehenge paper. It is a wonderful paper for mixed media projects. You can use it with pen, ink, watercolors, acrylics and many other media types.
I used Distress Paints and inks to stencil the cover. The stencil is by Michelle Ward.

I am taking the Chemistry 102 class from Tim Holtz this week. This is a quick card I was inspired to make using metal tape from Home Depot. I attached it to card stock before embossing. This is a new embossing folder I just purchased by Couture Creations called Sugarplum Ball. The paints are Distress Paint by Tim Holtz. They work extremely well on metal. The stamp is by Penny Black. I punched the leaves from a Martha Stewart punch and dripped Stickles on the leaves.

As a girl born and raised in Maryland, my favorite wildflower is the Black Eyed Susan. All along the highways in my home state you can see them growing. I made sure to plant them at my home in CT now that I am adult to give me that piece of Maryland. So when I saw this Susan's Garden Bigz die by Sizzix I knew I had to have it. I made with the die a Black Eyed Susan barrette for my daughter the other night. I colored the petals and created the the black powder look on the petals with Pan Pastels. I then finished it with a coat of Triple Thick by Deco Art. I glued the flower to the barrette with the same glue I used to put the flower together, The Ultimate. It is extremely strong and great to add firmness to paper projects.
Modeled by my daughter.
