I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.
Yes, this is actually my desk! I was in the midst of making the ACT’s Early Saturday morning when noticed how messy my desk had gotten. As
I was reaching to begin putting things away I thought, “I gotta get a
picture of this for Wednesday!”
"Autumn Magic" mixed media collage
I want to share this fall collage I made. I am very proud of it and it is the first one
I've created for someone other than myself.
The swap was to share a fall photo and poem, medium and presentation
were up to us. I used 9” x 12” water
color paper as a base so it is rather large. The tree and butterfly are from a fall paper napkin and the photo is one I took last year which I still love. I had a hard time mailing this off, wanted to keep it for myself!
Private Swap: Makeup for ATC's of ABC's - J is for Joy
I used my partner’s favorite colors to create ATC.
It's a Rainbow! - gold
Nearing the end of this yearlong series. Gold had to be used as the background or use
any color we liked and use gold accents.
I have very little gold items so I used gold glitter scrapbook paper for
the background. I painted the scroll
paper with metallic green acrylic paint to add some dimension then added the
butterfly which I cut out from the same paper napkin in the collage.
It seemed 'flat' so I hand colored it in with Sakura Stardust pens which gave it some sparkle.
