|I thought it would be interesting to blend my realistic and whimsical style images.|
|I love to crop images I create, it turns it into a totally different piece.|
|I thought this image was interesting once I cropped it so I decided to use it as my Blog Banner. What do you think? I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!|

I was in the mood to embellish so I bought 20 tins of Altoids and gussied them up with paint, sequence and a very thick gloss! I think these will make pretty gifts for all the teachers at school. Once they are dry I will wrap them in cellophane and tie around a pretty red bow. I always like to carry mints in my purse so I may just have to keep one for myself(O:

I decided the two page spreads were more interesting. The second image is a page dedicated to one of my favorite Christmas Carols!

I have been busy working on my new journal project. I decided to give it the dramatic effect of having it's own platform. It works really well as a lap desk when I'm curled up on the couch doodling by the fire! This wooden board underneath the moleskin journal has been permanently attached by my using a tile adhesive (super strong!!!). Once I stuck my journal to the board I began to paint the board and the cover of my new journal. This is the start, I'm sure I will come back to it and possibly add beads and other sorts of rich colored embellishments. I kind of want it to look like a jewel from the outside. Then as you can see I finished the drawing on the first page. I'm still trying to decide if I want this journal to be single page drawings or two page spreads?? I'm leaning towards to single page but who know when I may change my mind. The image on that first page has hair that spells out Art Mail. I have recently received the most beautiful Mail Art from a dear friend of mine and it meant so much to me that she spent so much time creating it just for me, thank you Carmelina!!! I did this page as a reminder of how it made me feel to walk out to my mail box and receive such a treasure.

Yesterday I took my girls to go and see "The Chronicles of Narnia III" and in one of the scenes the character Lucy was in a mansion and came across this amazing book with a lock, it was gilded with gold and ornate embellishments from front to back. All I could think of was how amazing it would be to have a journal so beautiful. I have set out to create one in a smaller scale but this is the start.
