UPDATE on Altered Journal and Box: Ok, this is big news for me. Tim Holtz emailed...he loved the journal and box! My life is now complete. (just kidding, kind of) What a sweetheart he is. I can fly on this one for awhile. :)
Here are three links to some amazing Photoshop Elements tutorials produced by Noel Joy. She's amazing, and has amazing photographs, as well. Also, you can visit her blog thru a link on the blogs list. You will leave inspired and a better person.
I have been scrapbooking on paper since 2008, but have done it many years before in my head! With two small boys it took some time for me to be able to carve out a niche for this.
I love creating lo's, altered items such and journals and treasure boxes, cards and items for the home. My work has been featured on the Graphic 45 website and my lo won first place at this year's CKC in Portland, Oregon. That was a real thrill for me. I am currently on several design teams and love the challenge of working with new products and mediums. I love exploring all styles, but my true love is a very feminine or vintage inspired style. I love the layered look and being able to incorporate things from my life into my projects.
I have a background in design and decorating and have been a crafter of things I love since childhood. I love the vintage look and think those type of projects speak volumes to those who see them because they are packed with symbolism about the subject. I do branch out to other styles and love to try a fresh approach with my artwork by trying new trends. But I admit it, I am an old soul. ♥ Thanks for visiting.
