"Playing Games"

This is a series of five shadowboxes I created, with a "Playing Games" theme. It was for a magazine challenge, but did not get published; so I'm glad I can share it here! I don't know how clearly you can see the details, but hopefully you'll get the idea. (if you click on the image it might help).

Article in Art Journaling Magazine!

I'm extremely proud that an article I wrote, and accompanying art, was just published in the Oct/Nov/Dec issue of Art Journaling Magazine. The magazine is at Barnes and Noble and some of the larger craft stores. As a bonus, my name is mentioned on the cover!

Tutorial: Extending a Photo With a Personal Touch

I promised to post some free tutorials here, and this is the first one. In 2015 an art journal page of mine was published by North Light in the Book Art Journal Kickstarter. The publisher later asked each artist featured in the book to submit a photo tutorial about the technique they used in their art piece.

I wrote about extending a photo with a personal touch.  This involves placing a photo on a journal page and extending the image (e.g., scenery) onto the surrounding page with paint, colored pencils, markers, pen and ink, etc.

My tutorial was published on the Create Mixed Media blog, and later shared by the Cloth Paper Scissors blog. You can find it at . Below are two before-and-after photos from the tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by!
