Digi Play

It's hot here ... so I'm playing in Photoshop ... 
documenting life
appreciating flowers

dreaming of travel

trying to stay cool. I hope wherever you are ... you are having a creative day!

This got cut up ...

and became this ...

with the aid of markers and paint pens ... a page in my new book.

Gelli plate prints art book #1

Here is the book I made from gelli prints. The cover is a manila envelope which I collaged with some of the prints. There are 4 signatures and 12 folios in a variety of sizes to create 48 surfaces to play with.


I think this will be fun to paint, collage, and doodle in.

Some digi collage

Here are a few digi collage pieces I made from the painted papers. There are countless possibilities! Less messy than using glues, however, not tactile.

Circles, digital collage

Chaos Within, digital collage

Meandering, digital collage
All inspired by Jane Davies.

And here is the other sides ...

Next up ... these will be put into a visual art book.

painted papers

Spent the day playing with the gelli print plate. So much fun. Such possibilities. I've scanned them so I get multiple use from each.

digi art

The angels trumpet flowers are in full bloom, creating a perfect start for a digi collage.
Angel Trumpet Sings, digital collage and altered photo

Here's a junque journal that I made with "stuff" ... no journaling, just stuff. A delight to flip through as it is very textural and there are "surprises on each page".

I hope you (those who peek here) are having a great Saturday!

Happy Days Journal

Here is a composition book journal. The scrapbook papers are all summer themed, hence the name of the book. Here is the description and some photos.

Face it. You have lots of cool photos, on your phone or in your camera. Right? This book is meant to bring those photos and summer memories to life. Get them printed, put them in this book, and “document” (journal) these moments. Life, especially in the summer, is beautiful and filled with opportunities to capture. Create a keepsake album, a book you will love to return to and pass on to your children.

Composition book. 100 pages plus foldouts, pockets, and envelopes. Scrapbook papers and a manila envelope attached to the inside back pocket to store memorabilia. Some pages are inked. There is lots of room for you to add photos, notes, memorabilia, ephemera, and your own artwork.

$25.00 (listed on my Etsy shop)

Composition Book Junque Journal

I'm taking an online class with Tangie Baxter making a junque journal from a composition book. I've attempted this before but didn't like the results. I love this one ... I'm using it for my day to day "documented life" journal.

More to come ...

blogger problems

for some reason, pictures have disappeared from my blog. I'll need to investigate it and see if I can get them back. Any suggestions?

EDIT - somehow photos were deleted from google+ -- oh I so find the google thing confusing! Anyway, its fixed for now.
