Two new layouts with the newest of the new Bella Blvd lines - the top layout is Lovey and the bottom layout is Socialite. I think Lovey will be perfect for some Valentine and anniversary cards, and I love the bright, clear colors of the Socialite line.
I played with making some new fabric flowers - the multi-color flower is made from scraps of silks, old kimonos, and cottons. Most of the teal/purple flower is scraps of raw silk and tulle.
Yesterday I received both my new Somerset Studio and Victoria magazines so I sat down with a cup of tea and just poured over the beautiful photos and creations - so inspiring!!!! I began to pull out some of my new papers and embellishments to create some fun things. I also began to think about posting here more often with a theme, such as Abundance or Gratitude for November, Winter holidays in December, and possibly Renewal or Nesting for January. I never realized how much time I was spending on a certain forum and creating for a certain site, but now I am feeling liberated and reborn - no constraints or limits!!!!
This afternoon I have my portrait painting class and we will be starting on portraits of other people in the class - that's a little daunting! In my studio right now, I am working on a painting for an exhibit in January at the Vero Beach Art Museum - so lots of things are happening.
Thanks for reading and see you soon.
