Morning! I hope everyone is thawing out and I am certainly wishing we have seen the last of snow for awhile, how about you? I meant to post the other day when we got over 8" of snow with drifts of 11, yikes! For Chattanooga that is not the norm well I am sure this has been an abnormal winter for lots of people. So here are some of the beautiful pictures I took during our snowfall...

Well I am catching up a little and maybe even a week ahead of time. Imagine that, finally! I am in a monthly Art jourmal page exchange and each month is just what that month means to us. This is my page for February and I did add crystals but you really cannot see them that well. I love the look of pink and brown together so I just added lace, trim, crystals, a few words and of course chocolate...Judy I hope you like it..

Morning! I finished my February ATCs for the Fiberantics group that I am in. Our theme this month was "transparency" which I was trying to think of something different for this month with keeping it simple. Because as you all know I can go over the edge and just keep adding and adding...since my word for this year is "simplify" this is what I came up with...not that it was hard just time consuming but I am satisfied with the results. Now I have one more thing to complete which is my February journal page and I can finish my grandson's quilt....
Old Fashion Screen Door:
Old Fashion Screen Door:
What I did was use gesso on each card then ink stamped the background and used a flower stamp in achieval black so there was something to see other than color. I cut and glued the no-seum screen down and used thin pieces of wood cut to size and ink glazed to make the old fashion frame...added the bead for a door knob and called it done....I hope you enjoy taking a peek and I thank you!

First let me wish everyone a very Happy Valentines Day and I really hope you get to enjoy the day with your loved ones! It has been a very busy month so far between doctors and taking my m-i-l to the er for falls that could have been prevented if she would use her walker, I am already exhausted. That being said I will be going to my Modern guild this morning and that is always a pleasure to spend time with our group here in Chattanooga. I am still missing my DF Linda it is like everywhere I go she should be there but hopefully I will see her in April and we will get a chance to catch up.
Anyway I am in a mixed media group and the theme this year is what each month means to me: so here is my month of January...take care and have fun.....
I used gesso, watercolor; glitter; white marker; black archival ink and washi tape...I hope the lady that receives it really enjoys it. It was allot of fun to do.

Now you have to promise not to laugh but I have started 2 new classes this New Year the first one is a knitting class and I am hoping to lean how to do more than the knit and pearl stitch. Our teacher actually started us out making a cable cast on and now we are into the next class which is following the pattern.....here is a pic so far
My next class is a drawing class and I really want to stop drawing stick people and learn to take it to another level. Jackie is a wonderful teacher so here are a couple photos of our first class together.
In the beginning she had us draw an apple and cylinders so the first 2 are my drawings without any guidance and then the last 2 are done with Jackie teaching us perspective and shading with different marks and pencils..I think the second 2 are better and I had a wonderful time. There are 4 of us in the class...2 of the ladies are much further advanced and then there is another friend of mine and me.
I will post updates as we go along...Thanks for taking a peek..
