Victorian Journal

Here are some pictures of a journal I am working on.  I took a class with Kim Geiser and the book I used was too thick and the pages too thin, so I took it apart and redid it.  It was given at Art-Is-You and I added all my trades to the side of the book.   I am adding lots more stuff, the only problem is that the book will not close, but I will be tying it with ribbon and can do that loosely.
I still have a long way to go but I am glad I started my Journal Journey.

The Art Of Steampunk

Here I am standing next to my piece that is now in the Gallery.  It is on it's own wall!  This is just
a preview.  The closing reception takes place January 4 and hopefully someone will buy it.  I didn't win any ribbons but hey, at least I got into a Gallery.  Hope you enjoy!

Hi everyone,

Here I am again with some exciting news.   It has been a while since I blogged since I have
been so busy making art.

First, I will be having a piece shown in the Art League Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery.
It is a piece of all my handmade jewelry that I put together into one big collage.  I am very
excited about this as it is a large gallery and I attend classes there as well.  This is a juried
show and there will be ribbons given out and an opening reception and a closing reception.


















Second, The Half Hollow Hills Library in Dix Hills has agreed to let    me put all my pieces in
their gallery.  It is downstairs and I have the whole area to myself.  I am very busy making
collages to hang there as well.  Here is one picture that is going in the library as well as others I am presently working on.























I will post pictures of the others as I make them.


The most exciting thing that can ever happen to me is I applied for a one-artist show at the Huntington Arts Council Gallery in Huntington, NY.  I will know after April 2015 if they
accept me and if they do, it will run for two weeks.  There will be an opening reception and a
closing reception.

I was just notified that a piece I donated to the HAC for a silent auction has been sold~!
I couldn't be more happier as it went to charity and for a good cause.

Here is a shadow-box collage I made for my new bathroom.  I love the way it  came out.  It is very vintage and the background is Tim Holtz material.  He has the most beautiful material out these days.
I painted all the resin pieces from Prima and distressed them with chalk.  Hope you like it!~

MY SPECIAL PROJECTS



Well it has been a while since I have written on my blog.  So much as happened.  The month of October was pretty busy, as usual, I went to the Art Is You Retreat and took some fabulous classes.  I took a journaling class with Kim Geiser and made a book that I am still working on and it is coming out fantastic.!!

I actually learned how to solder a matchbox!!  Pictures to come.  I took a class with Jenny & Aaron on how to use a palette knife to paint and decoupage, I learned how to make a small book with soldering and stamping with Lynne Suprock and her wonderful friend and assistant Cheryl, and of course the wonderful Andrea De Meng's class was fantastic.  We made a collage and I love the way it came out and we even learned how to use tools such as the dremel which was great because I have two and have never used either one!!

It was nice to see my old friends and meet some new ones as well.

I was on the Punk You Girl Lolita Design Team, but decided it was time to move on and guess what?  I applied for a position on a new DT called Creative Canvas Brands.  I never thought I would make it as it is a huge team and to my surprise, they invited me to join and my job will be crew member doing Vintage work which is my favorite thing to do!!
It sounds like tons of fun, I am getting to meet new people and will be making my first design due on December 1st so watch out for it.

On Sunday, January 4th, my heart is going pitter patter seriously, because I will have a piece of my artwork shown in a gallery called the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery at the Art League of Long Island.
It is a big piece 24x24.  I had a piece in a smaller gallery a few months ago, but this is a larger scale and it is so exciting. 

Last month I was published in Just Steampunk Magazine, not only on the cover!! but I got a three page spread in the magazine.  I am just jumping for joy.  I am going to add some pictures so you can see what I have been up to.

THEN, I spoke to the person in charge of art work at my local library and she wants me to put my collages on one of their walls, but that will come later as I am so busy right now.

Lesley Veneble's class

Andrea De Meng's class
Lynne Suprock's class

Jenny & Aarons class
Kim Geiser's class

























Here are the pictures from my spread in Just Steampunk


Top right piece is mine



This was in it as well


Two page spread


I don't know if I posted this but here is a picture of the piece that was in a small gallery in my town


I also want to mention that for three years now I have been a part of Adelphi University's Breast Cancer silent auction for women with this horrible disease.  We have to design a bra inside and out and the straps as well.  Here is my latest one that I made.  Then they have a reception with the silent auction and it is fabulous!!
This is the front

Here I am with the famous Tim Holtz and Mario at Scrapper's Playground.  Tim taught an
awesome class and I was very happy with the results.  It was so much fun and I actually
got to meet him and have a picture taken with him.  Scrapper's Playground has some
awesome teachers and more to come
