Re-discovering my natural creativity allowed me to look inward, enabling me to filter my world from my emotions and perceptions. This is who I am now. My art consist of mixed media and making jewelry from vintage finds. I love decorating my home, gardening, photography, journaling, traveling and working in my art studio. Most importantly is making time for my family and friends, that make my life good.
52 Card Pickup
Got the great opportunity to meet Stephanie Ackerman after reading her blog for several years. She was teaching at My Heart Fancy, in Oklahoma City. She is probably one of the best artist in creative style lettering that I have ever seen or met. I have taken a couple of her online classes, but so loved the time in taking a class with her in person. Learned lots of great new technique styles with the Tim Holtz distress pens and using the Claudine Hellmuth Studio medium that I never knew. The class was "52 Card Pickup" actually using playing cards and distressing them. Got lots of great items flowing from this projet.
This project allows you to add what is ever on your mind. Thoughts, prayers, inspiration...good for sharing on packages, in cards, gifts, the list could go on.
It was a good class with good friends and some good memories.
