What I’ve Been Working On

It’s been an especially long week. My co-worker was on vacation this week which meant extra hours at work for me this week. I don’t mind, I’m just glad it isn’t a regular thing.

With the extra hours at work, I haven’t been spending as much time in my studio this past week. I did make some progress the past two nights though.




I started painting some accessories to match the room. The frame will go around a fabric memo board that I made last week. The tray and lazy susan were finds at my local Goodwill.








This is a journal page that I made the other night. I just let inspiration strike as I pulled some supplies out of my supply closet and this is what I came up with. I made the flower on the far left out of tissue paper. The right side of the page contains hand stamped images that were painted. There is a word collage stamp toward the center of the page that I embossed. It is a bit difficult to see because of how the camera flash reflected off of it.




This weekend’s plans include finishing painting the accessories in the first picture. I still have a small table to spray paint. It’s just been too darn hot & sticky outside. I also should catch up on housework since I let those chores slide during the week!
