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!
The current Bi-Weekly Challenge Theme on my Yahoo Group is Hearts. The 1st one will probably end up being my Valentine's Day card to my DH. We'll see. I might come up with something better - maybe a little less feminine. :^)
Here is my piece for the current theme, Back To School. Themes are posted every other week on the Lost Art Creations Yahoo group.
I used The Mad, Sad and Glad collage sheet - I just LOVE their expressions! I also used Ephemera II and Sara's Sewing Box collage sheets as well as Vintage French Composition pages, Vintage Typewriter Letters 1/4", vintage rayon ribbon and a rope edged bezel charm.
I started a new weekly challenge on my Yahoo group. Hopefully it will get people to create and share art on the group. The theme for this week is lace. This is a spread from my Altered Experiments Journal. I used images from the Biggie Set called Flower Girls, the Birds & Nest collage sheet, some antique French lace (love the purple - very unusual) and some plain white flowers that I spritzed with a homemade pearl mist using Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls. I also used some Gold Dresden trim, an antique pen nib, silk ribbon, pearl gem stickers, quote printed on transparency, tiny brads and satin ribbon to finish it off.
