When we built this house nearly seven years ago, I was teaching and working for a local newspaper. We included a second-floor study with a huge palladium window overlooking the pond and had lighting installed to showcase floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases. I am still waiting for the bookcases, but in the meantime the books have been a bit overwhelmed by my art supplies, so the study has become a studio. The merge of art and books pretty well sums up my life, so this blog is a mixture. I'm eclectic in interests, so who knows what will show up on these pages.
For the first entry, then, here's a birthday card I made. One of my goals this year is to use items I have bought but not really explored yet. This Cuttlebug Embossing Plus folder has been sitting in a box, still in its wrapper, since last summer. I do like the combination of embossing and cutting, especially when I highlighted the embossing with distress ink.
Happy belated birthday, Joyce.
Stampin Up Dusty Durango Ink; Peeled Paint Distress Ink'
The cut-out looked a bit unfinished on the inside, so I made a scalloped frame on my Silhouette. It's lovely being able to create any size I need.
Tomorrow a book review of a mystery novel, my favorite escape fiction.
