Finished my pages for the The Tallest Handmade Book in the World {Project} and sent them out today. My theme is Artisan du Reve which translates to Architect of Dreams. The architect is a little girl who has fantastical dreams...the last page shows that she has grown up, but inside she still dreams fantastically. :) Oh, and my camera is the you can see, so yellow:

Otherwise, I've been arting it up digitally, with a few traditional collage pieces thrown in. Will post pics of those later. I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather!

Seriously Witchy!

Had too much fun making this one, especially as that little girl looks just like one of my co-workers. I hope she gets a kick out of it too. :)

SDS, you complete me...sigh.

About a week ago, I bought my first issue of Somerset Digital Studio...and I am in love! I cannot stop looking at it! In fact, I have already been surfing ebay for past issues. These beautiful creations are serious eye candy. Love! I feel inspired. Truly. Deeply. Madly.

I also committed to contributing pages to The Tallest Handmade Book in the World {Project} . I am very excited about this (the book will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to a very worthy cause). Contributors will create 4 pages (or more) and I thought I would do some simple digital work as background on my inside's one of the backgrounds (it will be embellished later):

And speaking of digital design, I am enamored of Riki Schumacher's e-Workshop blog. It's just so beautiful. My mouth hung open when the page loaded and I said, ooohhh. Her banner is below. Sigh. Best part is that she's got a giveaway going on over there. Check it out.

So many giveaways going on right now...I love the generosity of the art world. I need to do the same but what to give? Hmm. I'll think on it and get back to ya.
