A few weeks ago I added my latest Sketchbook Project (2018) to my website. Since then, I have been working on gathering the photos I wanted to share from the other years that I have participated . . .Read More

I've already gotten an email notice that my book has been viewed . . . whoo hoo!
If we let things terrify us, life will not be worth living.
|I added more lace paper around the opening here . . .|
|I love how the embossing powder on the page looks like sand and the lace paper looks like waves|
|when you turn the page to see the whole photo, I have added more paint and pigment powders.|
|On this set of pages I added paint and stardust glitter to this page, then brushed over the glitter with matte medium to make sure it stayed in place.|
|more rubber stamping and some embossing powder|
|water color crayons, circle template and circle stamps|
by Balzer Designs!
|more layers of paint and rubber stamping|
|and glued on some lace & string paper around the window.|
|On the left I glued on marbled blue & gold paper first, then added ripped bits of "lace green with white thread" paper I found at Jerry's Artarama.|
|I cut out a vintage postcard image in the same circle size|
|I glued it in place and also stitched around it and on the page|
|I added more rubber stamping to peek out through the circles I cut|
|Now you see the postcard image with the page unfolded|
|The page is tucked back in again and more stamping is added|
|This is the back of where I sewed my images.|
I've added a painting of Lenna Glackens, by my great uncle, William Glackens.
|This shows the next section coming up, brown . . . I have added the cut out|
purple circle to this section of pages!
|The purple section folded up, next to the brown section|
|journaling in my sketchbook|
|the cover, with my theme spelled out|
|Just a couple of more views of the way the pages fold & spread out . . .|
Go make something - anything!! : ^ ) lenna
