I started this book in Seth Apter's For Your Eyes Only class (hence the name) in July 2014. It took me about a month to finish it completely. Of course I had to put my own spin on it with lots of vintage images, antique trims and German Dresden. Thanks so much Seth for such an awesome class! I like how it came out - hope you do too!
I am being very brave posting pics of the old studio and sharing my remodel/move to the larger space as it continues (right now, very slowly). Believe it or not the old studio was pretty organized. I liked to call it an organized mess - LOL! It just became so cramped with so much CRAP it wasn't conducive to creating anymore. Please be kind if you comment! :0)
Update: The studio is finished! Woohoo!
Located at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme CT this is a yearly event. 38 structures are hidden throughout the FloGris property. The level of detail in each and every structure is just extraordinary! So much fun whether you have kids or not. A magical day!
For my birthday this year we traveled to Madison CT's Barberry Hill Farm to attend 'Dinners At The Farm' an annual summer event started by Jonathan Rapp of River Tavern in Chester CT. For two weekends in July and two weekends in August he picks two host farms to host this fabulous charity event to benefit City Seed plus two other land/farm related charities. All the food we ate was locally sourced and absolutely spectacular!
Woohoo! I got in a bit more art time so I was able to finish my tag page spread for Tim Holtz's 12 Tag challenge a bit early. Thought I'd take a little break from prepping for the open house tomorrow to post my results. I love the technique he used this month. It looks embossed but it's not - so cool! I'll definitely be using this technique again!
After all the cleaning, packing, decluttering & staging to get my house ready to hit the market I have been able to take a little breather to get ahead on some art commitments, namely the Mixed Media Mavens AB round robin and my ATCs for the swap in September. It's traditionally a bit quiet on the house selling front in August (Back to school and last blast summer vacations) so I have been taking full advantage! My pages for both Deborah and Rachel are finished and I am working on my ATCs so more posts & photos to follow.
Today I am sharing the pages I made for Deborah's book. Deborah is a deeply spiritual woman and an incredible artist so I wanted to celebrate that in my pages for her. I also used the MicroGlaze (Distress Glaze) technique that Tim Holtz used on his July tag. Lots' of stamping and watercoloring on these pages! The Icon is a bookmark that I found at a religious store that I went to in search of a St Joseph figure for my house.
