Happy Holidays to All!
I have been away too long and I apologize.
Big life changes but all for the better.
 In January I will start posting more
 now that the dust has settled.

Playing with my Silverware

Mom aways said don't play with your food but nothing was said about the silverware! Thrift store, old silverware, wire, jewelry bits, goodies and a little E 6000 glue.  Voila, art! Actually it is also lots of fun.  I was visiting two of my sisters in Washington and we took a collage workshop. I made this spoon for Marcy our instructor.  See the row of three beads in the bowl of the spoon? That's us. I call this one "Three Sisters"

I really like the way these turned out.  The different types and colors of the metals make them very pleasing to my eye.  The long spoon was used in the collaged cigar box I did with Marcy.  I will post the cigar boxes later.  Just another reason to collect and save broken bits and pieces.

The Year of the Dragon

This is the year of the Dragon, the Water Dragon to be more precise.  I was not only born in the year of the Dragon but also in the year of the Water Dragon. So "look out baby" this is my year!  I did this page in a journaling book a few years ago and when I realized it's the year of the Water Dragon I decided to post it.    Happy New Year to you all, especially any Dragons out there.

Walking with Wiley

A few weeks ago I went for the first walk of the year with Wiley at Irvine Park.  She was a little slower that day wanting to spend time sniffing all the wonderful smells.  So every time she stopped, I stopped, looked around and picked up a little treasure.  Then I brought them all home and sketched them.  I set them on the table in a small pewter dish and enjoyed a little bit of the outside, inside.

Zentangle Ensemble

Tah-Dah! Sorry this is so late, I didn't mean to tease, really.  With the holidays and all the comings and goings we cancelled our meeting.  I finally couldn't stand it and put my ensemble together and then didn't get it posted.  Got a nudge from Hawaii so here it is. Thanks Cristi! Looks cool, right? I am amazed at how well it turned out and there is only one slight oops that really doesn't matter because it's a "Zentangle"!  Okay, a New Year and once again I will try and post more often.  I usually say once a week but we all know how that turned out in years past.  Happy New Year !
