A little update.....

Hi, it's been a little while.....kind of swamped with CHA projects right now......sadly, I won't be attending but my work will be there. I've been covered in paint and textures.....doing a set of mixed media canvases for the DecoArt booth and creating their make and take. Lots of fun but oh, so busy! And then there are Crate and Webster's layouts......speaking of Crate.....

Something I'm really excited about.....Crate is announcing their new DT this week....I'm returning for another term!! So in love with their product! They announced me and some other fabulous ladies on the blog today - along with some random facts about me that you might not know. Crate Paper Blog

And a Crate layouts that I had in reserve, this one means so much to me.

Playing with some of the DecoArt Acrylic Gesso.....this product is thick and rich and chalky!!! I simply adhered leftover letters onto the paper and then dry brushed with a coat of gesso - it kind of pulled it all together.

And these butterflies......loving the hybrid, as you know....these are from a collection by Vinnie Pearce - I changed the colors in PSE and printed them out on transparency for a tinted accent.

I wanted to show a peek of my desk earlier this week......even took a photo, then decided it was too No, I am serious. So, I've got to get back to it - I'll try to get a couple of work in progress to share....that aren't too shocking.

See you soon,
