Portal of Prose and The Enchanted Forest

These are the pages I did for my friend Megan's book. Here theme is Enchanted Forest. Her pages are different shaped chipboard pages. I decided to make the scalloped shape into a sun on one side and a moon on the other. The page underneath is the enchanted forest in the daytime and the enchanted forest at night!

This spread is for the coolest little book titled Prose Portal. We were to make pages based on books that made an impact on us. I felt it was like a little time machine and I kept going back to books I read over and over as a child. One of my favorite books is Where The Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. These pages represent the Ozark mountains, the two coonhound dogs and the magical red fern.

New Marie themed journal pages

I have been waiting for my vacation time to catch up on my art groups. This spread is for my Marie Antoinette Art Journal Round Robin
group. I drew Marie ready to go to a masquarade ball. I am working on two more books and I will post those as soon as I finish them! It feels good to finally get to work in my friend's books.

Santa Baby, hurry down the chimney tonight!

While I was digging in my crowded garage bringing the Christmas decorations in I happened upon this original 45 of Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby in my grandmother's records! Isn't it cool looking? It's dated 1954 on the back. I created a shadowbox complete with a hot pink stocking, a pic of a light blue Cadillac, a copy of the cover of the single, and a photo of a Tiffany's box. I lettered some of the lyrics around the edge of the shadowbox. I love this version of the song and I thought this was a cool way to display it for the holidays.
It will be traveling to Connecticut tonight as a gift for my son's partner.
What do you think? Is it retro enough?
I hope your holiday is overflowing with love!

Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree!!!!

TaDa! Here is my sweet little
Marie themed tree. I made most of the embellished ornaments.
It's a tabletop tree and I LOVE it.
Now I'm on the hunt for a cool big white tree OR a silver
aluminum tree from the 50's!

Merry. Merry To You All!

This is what I've been up to this week.
I wanted to make some
ornaments for my little white tree I bought after Christmas last year. I am in a Marie Antionette Round Robin and I wanted to make some girlie, frilly, sparkly ornaments for MY tree. I had some embossed wallpaper and I layered sheet music, scrapbook paper, lace, ribbon, glitter and jewels! I had so much fun I made a bunch more to give my girlfriends at work! I will take a photo of my pretty little tree so you can see how it all looks!
