The Da Vinci file (book)

This is a book I made from file folders that I cut up to make a book. I used all these very luscious papers for backgrounds. My images came from Ten Two Studios, the Da Vinci collage sheets and mini domino images. I also had a few of my own images I found for free. My book is bound with those screws you find for scrap books.

Iris folding fun

Here is a project that is a fun way to use up extra paper and make a dramatic statement. It is called iris folding. Here is some directions on how to do iris folding. I will say mine are a little different, but you can experiment. Even mistakes can look good.

Mother's Day Trinket boxes

These are small little paper mache boxes. They are covered in green distressed inked music sheets. The boxes were painted on the top and inside with a light yellow acrylic paint. I punched out the images and glued them in bottle caps along with punched flower to center the bottle cap on. The images are found at Ten Two Studios

China travel art journal

Here is the travel journal I made to take along on my trip to China. It has bristol, watercolor and vellum papers inside. These are some of the pages I made.

My China Trip

I was lucky enough to tag along with my husband while he worked in Hangzhou, China. I even celebrated my birthday while I was there.
