All of these stars were made for Steven and I, for our wedding in 2005. I love getting them out every year, reading them again and hanging them up. Blessings to you & yours! xo lenna
. . . . writing the story of your life.
I just realized, watching this animoto video I made, that it was actually about healing. The art you see, the Nia/dance, the beach, the sun, water and shells, taking these photographs, my dogs and my family, especially my husband, have been my way to heal after the loss of my father. I am so grateful for all I have and I hope you enjoy the sand and sea.
|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|

2011 - The butterfly project
Tonight I crossed the 10,000 mark on my flickr photo account, which means in 5 years time I have uploaded over 10,000 photos to this account on my art, life, love, moving, family, animals and more. Wow, I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed or proud! Anyway, I wanted to announce this, so here I am. I obviously love to share my photos!
