Bernie DJ and Stephanie

Here is the lovely trio from the USA, our tutors for the Soul Arts Retreat held in Melbourne. These girls were wonderful ladies with endless energy and creativity. I thoroughly enjoyed the classes I took with Stephanie and DJ and sad not to have been able to also include a class with Bernie. There was simply not enough days to squeeze everything into and hopefully one day, I will be enjoying one of Bernie's classes too.

Tiny House swap

These are th 50 tiny houses I made for the Sout Arts Retreat swap held in Melbourne 14-16 March 09.

Chunky ATC

I enjoyed creating on this little block of timber. This was inspired by the the wonderfully talented and creative Audrey Hernandez.  Many thanks to  Paper Princess Judy and her husband Kurt for sourcing and cutting these little treasures out for us.

Birthday art from Mary

I wanted to share the lovely hanging I received from my friend Mary for my recent birthday. The girl on the paper has been transferred with a matt medium and the main background is the PVA crackle technique featured in the Feb/March Stamper's Sampler. Mary always does such lovely art and the wonderful and generous gifts that accompanied this made me truly spoilt.

Art 4 U

Following my project for the February AOTM for Kasha which was an ATC size canvas,  I  felt there was room for improvement and more enjoyment to be had, so as I often do, I made another!  Please let me know if others do this.  Thankfully there was a just enough of the tassle left over for a 4 inch square canvas which was big enough to add some bits down the side.   

March AOTM for Gaye

For Gaye this month, I made a canvas to go with her recent blue and green nature themed canvas collection made by the Paper Princesses group for her recent birthday.  These will be hung,  grouped together in a random fashion as each is a different size also,  so hoping this one will fit with the others nicely and hopefully tie in my first effort which was a little overcrowded and seem not to fit as well.  I have stuck to the butterfly theme which is one of my favourites and the colour is similar, in an attempt to tie in my first canvas.
