These are the journals/notebooks i am collaging/ altering/ making for sale . . . What you see here is what i have done so far, minus the one my friend Sharon Borsavage bought : ))) i do so enjoy this work of gathering items and putting them together while rediscovering music on my laptop out in the studio! I plan to have at least a dozen to bring to a local gift shop my husband's cousin owns. I am lucky she loves my notebooks and is looking forward to having more in her shop! Click on the photo above to go to closeups of all of them. lenna young andrews, October 17, 2009.

art for Tapestry Rose

art for Tapestry Rose, originally uploaded by creativelenna.

I have been creating art for two local gift shoppes here in CT. One of the shops is Tapestry Rose located in Rocky Hill, and the other is the Bleu Willow in Simsbury. I did not realize how busy I had been creating things until I made up an album on my flickr photo sharing site for all my "shoppe art". This album set does not include the pieces that have already sold either, my goodness. The photo above is a close-up of one of my hand painted and hand stamped (with real leaves) silk scarves I did while visiting Wolfe Island, in Canada this summer. If you click on the picture you will be brought to more photos of what I have been busy doing behind the scenes for these local shoppes!
