I was really bummed about getting stuck in my art life this week, so I did this as therapy. It was a lot of fun, and now I feel like I'm getting back on track. Whee!

Journeybook page with White-out tape

Having just learned this phenomenal trick with white-out tape, I of course had to incorporate it into my Journeybook.

(BTW, "Journeybook" is what I call my arts/prayer/doodles/whatever altered journal.)

So take a peek at the page:

Everything used is scrap or bought from the Last Chance bin. The image is from an old calendar.

I enjoyed using this method and will definitely employ it often in my work.

A new ATC

Artist trading cards are all the rage, and it's one I heartily approve of. I've just hopped aboard the wagon myself and received my first trades. Here's one I made in the last few days. Entitled "Not Old", it is going to the current Mingle at Altered StART. I love "Harold", which is, of course, my Vintage Guy's name. I'm just gonna have to recreate it because, dad burn it, it was just so much fun! (I just had to say "Dad burn it", 'cuz Harold would.)

Let me be the last to say

Happy, happy 2008!

Well, Christmas is all packed up and put away; now, "1, 2, 3, back to reality."

I've sorely neglected posting lately, but creativity, and cleaning up after same, has kept me away from the keyboard. See what I got for Christmas:

No, that's not my personal table; it's one I found on the Web. Mine, and the space it's in, are much more happily disheveled. However, this pic is better than my camera phone can take.

Also, I got this. YAY ME!!! No more hunching over a light bulb!

And my DH filled my stocking with bottles of glass glitter. What a guy!

Aside from transforming my erstwhile kitchen eating area into a studio, I've been working on some things for my Altered Start (Yahoo) group, which I will proceed to post about in days to come. In the meantime, here's a zillion ways to reuse and repurpose old books, courtesy of The Bookshop Blog. Click on over and get insanely inspired!
