I've been working hard on my Mermaid Circus Journals. It's been difficult because I'm new at this, but I'm working on it!
 This was the first try to my Teesha Moore collage.  I wasn't crazy about it, so I covered it. Below is the new collage that I created.

Here are my too new faces for "The Mermaid Circus" class with Jane Davenport and Teesha Moore.
It's so much fun. I'm getting the hang of faces. They do a great job teaching their techniques. I love it!

Now in Jane and Teesha's class we have to draw faces.  My first try wasn't great, though I'm pleased with my most recent with the blue hair.
I made this mermaid in the mermaid journal. Her lips are enormous, but I don't want to mess with her anymore.

This is my most recent face. I think it's my favorie. I think I finally learned how to make

She's finally here! I'm not finished yet, but getting close. My favorite part is her bottom half. It's from a picture of a glass sculpture.

First step in making my mermaid journal

Got bogged down making my blog. I finally finished the first part of the journal

Dress form with retro pins

For the past several months I've been working on my art and jewelry studio. Here are some of the photos.

Antique dress form with my vintage pin collection.
My new jewelry studio. I have another area for  journaling projects.
I painted the cabinets with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  Love that stuff!

Antique wooden hardware drawers! Got them in Roundtop, Texas.  I love them.

"Mermaid Circus" is coming to town!

I've just started a class called "Mermaid Circus".  Jane Davenport and Teesha Moore are the instructors.  I've taken Jane's classes and watched everyone of Teesha's videos. I'm looking forward to being inspired!
