Long Time

Sorry I have been neglecting my blog for such a long time! I've been very busy with work, the end of the school year, and now teaching one week of Summer Camp-hopefully it will all end soon and I can have my break! But regardless, I have been making art!

This was for a bird card swap for my Art For the Creative Mind Yahoo Group. It now lives in Liverpool! I used a Club Scrap stamp that had the 3 birds on it, watercoloured the image and cut it into 3 pieces.



This is the arch I made for the 7th anniversary of the ABC Altered Book club. I will be getting about 13 more, and then I will make a book! I had fun making this, even though it took a few tries to get it right!



This is my lovely Steampunk Mona Lisa, again for a swap on AFTCM Yahoo group. She now lives in Philly! The swap was just art dolls, but steampunk was in my head because they were also doing a steampunk necklace swap that I didn't do, so I did a doll instead!



This is my page for Altered Books Canada Yahoo Group (ABCanada).
We had a Nature ATC Swap and we make an altered book page from the ATC we received. This is my page! My ATC came from Jane in Saskatchwan. The bees on the ATC are raised, so I mirrored that with my bee on the sunflower. The girl came from Dover.


And last but not least, some journal pages. Still a bit sporadic, I'm hoping for daily in the summer. Playing around with style again! Wanting to use more of my stamps that were getting very lonely.








That's it for now! Hopefully I will update before the month is over!
Thanks for looking and I always love your comments!

Lots of great stuff here. Of your journal pages I have to say that one with paper strips running across it that you journaled on is a really neat idea. I say go ahead and play with different styles. It sure keeps a journal from being boring!

I just love the way your journal pages flow and are so beautiful. I was surprised to see the post from the ABC Canada group as I had thought it was no longer happening. Maybe in the fall I will rejoin it , you always had fun swaps there. Love the dolls and heck Linda all of your art is wonderful. I hope you enjoy your summer vacation and find time to do more of what ever you feel like doing.
