On The Boardwalk

Sharing some Tag Art here I just created for a Swap I host over at Roses On My Table. Some summer creative fun!
Just a reminder that tomorrow Google will be making changes in our feed for blogs so I have signed up for Bloglovin! Taking this all into consideration in about a month I will be closing this blog and moving all my Art and Projects/Creations over to Lulu's Lovlies with the look of this blog and the Lulu's Lovlies  name.
I'm going to a 2 column layout so we can view larger photos. I hope you will follow me and you will be seeing more Art and Swap/Party links. It has become just too difficult and time consuming to maintain 2 blogs when the post are so similar and can be merged  into one. In doing this I will be able to go back to posting more often. The Bloglovin link is on Lulu's Lovlies blog and it is easy to sign up.  I think we still will have Google Friends connect but the rest, who knows. Change is inevitable in everything so that being said we just go with the flow here:)

Just Tagging Along

Getting ready for summer playing in my creative garden with a few Fairy Tags for a recently finished swap! I always love all the garden magic and hope to plant a sweet little container Fairy Garden, just looking for the right vintage piece to use as a planter. I hoping to come across a reasonable priced old  wagon like my kids had. Guess it will show up sooner or later so instead I played in my paper garden.  Have a great creative week, looking forward to more beautiful weather as soon as  June gloom disappears.  Mornings are a bit cool and overcast, really a good time for gardening, see ya there!

Great Gatsby Inspired

 With the recent release of Great Gatsby I'm reminded of a few paper dolls I recently created for the "Le Papier Doll Swap" at Roses on My Table.  Meet  Flappers Verna and Vera who can charm their way into any party and steal the show. Hope you are all happily creating away or doing something wonderful this holiday weekend. I will be enjoying some time playing with my Gelli Plate and other projects!

Dance Like No One Is Watching

Wow it had been awhile since I last posted! Life does get busy and I have been having a great time learning new art techniques. I recently joined Tim's Sally ning group and found it to be quite fun and something very different for me. If you know me well you will know that I love learning new things. There is a project for each month and I'm of course playing catch up. I joined the True Free Spirit Group and love it. Here is my "January" True Free Spirit Girl! "Dance Like No One Is Watching".

Meet Chanel and Cherise

Thought you might like to meet Chanel and Cherise, my most recent paper dolls. They were a lot of fun to design and they were all hand drawn with the exception of their faces on white heavy duty paper, then then the Zentangles were added. A very slow process but well worth the results. Hope you enjoy them! Have a great a creative weekend, don't forget to "spring" your clocks forward, perhaps spring will be right around the corner:)

A Little Gypsy in All Of Us

How has your week been going? I have been so busy finishing up a swap or two, including a needle felting class over at  Roses on My Table  given by the talented Needle Felting Artist Judy Johnson. Later in the week I will post pic's on my other blog of my felted bunny. Before I start new classes I thought I would show you my latest Tags created for the upcoming swap Gypsies and Fortune Tellers at Roses. Have a great  creative week!

What's New In Your Neck of the Woods?

Lately I have been catching upon what seems like a zillion projects! I spent a full week creating a 12 x 12 scrapbook for my brother which included removing all the pic's and misc items from one of those "old school" scrapbooks from the 1970s that had the sticky, yucky stuff on the pages as those are not Acid Free and will suck the life out of your pic's over a period of time, especially color pic's. Well 31  pages later in his new 12 x 12 book they are saved! I'm putting this away for a Christmas or birthday present for this year.
Now for the fun stuff I created a few ATC's for a current swap coming up and a mixed media  journal page that I used as a intro page in the photo album. It was a vintage family pic of relatives which I turned into a "family tree". Quite fun, the leaves of the tree are instant oatmeal, the roots are scrim all scrunched up with matte medium as an adhesive and then painted, then a coat of wax applied. This was fun of the messy kind!
Have a great weekend! I'm off to finish another project and start a couple of new ones, finishing a needle felted bunny and starting a little art doll  class over at Paper Whimsey.

A Song For 20 Angels A Newtown Tribute

Hi there fellow bloggers and friends. I hope you are having a creative fun filled week. Today I'm sharing one of my most recent creations with wax, and it has special meaning to me. I will be keeping this piece in my collection remembering how we were all affected that tragic day. This will have a fabric backround and some other elements to create a wall hanging.  I'll post again when finished. This is one of my most favorite areas to create in, fabric, images and wax. I can't wait to see what is around the next creative corner! How about you?

Dolly and Doily in Blue

Sharing a bit of love of the ole' Paper Dollies, Here are the paper dolls I created for my most recent swap for the Le Papier Dolls Group over at Roses. This is Edith in blue, named after my maternal Grandmother and this is Alice named after her first born child who only live to the age of one year as she had some thing wrong with her heart as the story goes. We sure have improved in the age of medicine since  the  late 1800's. Can you imagine if we hadn't? Have a great weekend and until the next time,
