I am back today with another project to share from CHA. This project was featured in the Sizzix booth. I fell in love with the new Bird Silhouette Die from Tim Holtz and wanted to build a pretty decor piece to feature it.
Quotes and great phrases often inspire my art. Sometimes the quote comes first, and sometimes it is the art that puts me on a search for just the right words. Either way, I love including the words of others in my art, letting their words capture the message in the art I make or using it to add meaning to the art. If you are like me and love great words, I hope you will enjoy the week’s selection of Quotes for Art. I hope they inspire you as you carve out time to create art in the coming week. [Read more…]

Hello there! I am back today with another CHA project to share with you! Today I have a Tim Holtz Burlap Panel project. I love making home decor projects and I love using Burlap Panels. I think they are such a versatile surface that is easy to use as is or to alter with paints and inks.
Every year when it is time to share the projects I have made for CHA, I debate which is my favorite and the one to share first. This year there was no question, it is this fabric accordion junk book. This book has been in my brain for a while. It is one of those projects that I would lay in bed and think about. I love making books from scratch and this was one that I needed to get out of my head and into fabric and paper. I knew what I wanted it to do, but I couldn’t decide how I wanted to construct it. Finally one day I just started and let it work itself out. I am so glad I did because I love it, madly.
