Productive ART weekend!!

I really DO rotate my images, but sometimes when I save them they seem to like being sideways again.  I was having so much trouble uploading ANYTHING I am going to go ahead with this post. Please turn your head to look at the first 2 photos. I finished the first layout in my new Color Dreams journal last weekend and mailed it to NY. The paper doll page says,"Let your muse... and the second paper doll page says..."out to play".  The scan of the second page couldn't be uploaded at all and the book has started it's round robin journey, so you'll have to take my word for it.
This regal looking lady is an ATC I made for my PID SWAP yahoo group. I made 3 of these and I will get a bunch of ATCs back to see how other artists used the same image. All of the Paper Imagery Designs images are named and this one is Rosia.

My big accomplishment this weekend was designing, making and finishing  15  ATCs for my
Paula's Kit Club swap this month. The theme is Storybook and our latest kit has a forest/nature
focus.  I decided to use Winnie-The-Pooh in the 100-acre wood to merge the two themes.  I  used a Pooh quote on each card.  I hope none of the people in my swap mind that I went over the edges a little. I simply cannot help myself- I am just an over the edge kind of girl!

The last project I completed THIS weekend was this chipboard house page for my Mixed-Media Madams tip-in group.  I really like how this one turned out. The words on the roof are some of the  lyrics from the song, Home from The Wiz.  I will try and add it to my playlist so you can hear it and we can make this a multi-sensory experience!

Now I have to go and do my lesson plans for the upcoming week. I did complete a journal page and I will post that next.  I hope you all have a lovely week and squeeze in some ART time!

Thanks for your comment Jen! Asilomar was fantastic, and I just updated my blog, but haven't gotten to Asilomar yet. Hope to do it by the end of the week!

Boy, have you ever been busy! Very cool - I love the Owl/100 acres wood one, especially.
Glad you're having fun, creating like crazy!
