As promised.............

Yesterday I mentioned how I use to colorize black & white photos with food coloring. I wrote an article back in 2007 for Artitudezine and here is what it looks like:

The bride on the left of the page is my mom and the sailor on the postcard is my father. Both have passed away at fairly young ages (59, 60) and I miss them very much. I was so happy to include them in this article. I only wish they could of seen it. The bottom two pieces of art were made using food coloring. And the top two pieces of art were used with window envelopes from junk mail.

I also created an assemblage called, "awaken" which was printed in the gallery section of the magazine.



My thought process behind this piece was about my childhood. The message, "awaken the nest" means awaken your thinking about your childhood and realize how it has affected who you are today. I know a lot of people say "the past is the past", but sometimes I feel like I spend a lot of time untying the emotional knots that were made in my youth.




This is the cover of the Artitude zine issue and I believe you can contact the creator Suz, if you are interested in purchasing back issues @ http://artitudezine.com/

I will be back in a day or two with a journal page that I just finished. Ta ta for now friends:)

Published in Somerset Studio's ART Journaling magazine gallery section Spring 2014!

Great news! Some of my journal pages were selected to be published in one of my favorite magazines..........ART Journaling!!

Stampington & Company is such a wonderful resource for artists who create in many different mediums. You can find this magazine and more on their website @ http://stampington.com.

The first page of the gallery section has little snippets of what you will see in the coming pages. Mine is on the far right (birdies on a branch)


Here is the two page layout.........yay!

I'm so happy with the results!

Here is a closeup of the first page:


I created this page after being outside one day early in the morning. I was watching birds on a branch of this bush and they were so cute, just kinda hanging around. I was feeling overwhelmed by life and that's where the sentiment came from. "Birdies on a branch, how lucky you are...........you can just fly away." I wanted to be one of those birds.
The truth that I have learned and accepted in my life by faith is…

Keeping it simple

I love healthy food, and lately I've been trying some new things. I am keeping the recipes quick and simple.

Today, I am having a cucumber drizzled with Trader Joe's spicy peanut dressing sprinkled with sesame seeds. Hydrating and yummy!

Healthy food doesn't have to be expensive or time consuming. And honestly, when I eat more simple "mini-meals", I feel better because I know they are easily digested.

I don't eat healthy every second of every day, but I am achieving more balance. And today, that's what I'm grateful for.

I am an artist

I am an artist. But there are blocks of time when I just don't feel like creating.

I just started creating again. I love to alter antique cabinet cards. I think each one has a story to tell. I look at the facial expressions in the photo and listen to what it speaks to me.

Here are a few samples:


This one is called, "no matter the weather". It can be the most beautiful day outside, but if you are hurting.......it's all rain.

The next is called, "she dreams of home".
Oh, how she dreams of home, where she can be a little girl again. And this one is called, "mended memories".

She remembers the past, and the pain she's endured. The Lord has stitched up her heart.........many, many times.

Lately, I have been interested in creating things like I've never done before, like abstract painting and sewing. I will post some of those finished projects soon.

If you're an artist and you haven't created in a while, don't be discouraged. Yo…
