What Next?

Sometime during the spring of this past year (2019) I took some tag board and cut out 4 squares, each 4×4 inches. On these squares I created a different mixed media collage. You can see them above. I placed the collages to the left of each board and it was my intent to add a… Continue Reading

Yikes! It’s been life forever since I last posted here!! And while my life has been busy it’s not like I haven’t had the time. No excuse really. I even prepped images of one of my winter projects to share with everyone but just didn’t “get around to it”. I enjoy making small artist notebooks/journals.… Continue Reading
