Welcome to my blog. My blog is mainly for the sharing of the many projects I make either for swaps, for gifts or just because I was inspired by something I saw on the internet and wanted to give it a try as well. I hope you enjoy what you see and if you have any questions be sure to send me a comment.

Dyan Reaveley BYOB Class April 1,2017

I had an opportunity to take a class from one of my favorite mixed media artists, Dyan Reaveley.  My daughter-in-law and I made a weekend trip of it down to Beaverton, OR for the class as well as some fun shopping in the area. 

We took a class called Build Your Own Book (BYOB), and I really liked the assembly of this book.  I'm not so sure I was all that crazy about the different types of paper mixed together in the book, but once I got home and decorated the pages I fell in love with it.

Here are pictures of the finished book... well, I may go back and add a thing or two to a few of the pages, but for now... I'm sticking a fork in it.

The Mixed Media Morsel art journal project was created by Cat Hand. She created videos of her technique themed projects using a mini composition book. We replicated the techniques either with our own designs or we could copy hers.  I did a little of both... using a little bound notebook with pages that were about 3" x 5-1/2" You can follow this link to her You Tube channel.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsKvyMTiXZonwDYs18SnWwg

The last photo shows how the address labels were decorated with paints then over stamped with black ink.

These two photos are of the Torn Paper Background technique on 8.5 x 5.5 journal pages.
