I don't claim any ownership to the original unaltered photos I used in this digital compilation. I only used them to create a tribute piece.

The 2016 Art Journal Caravan Has Begun!

If you have been one of my Blogger friends for a number of years, you may have seen some of my posts from when I was a member of Tangie Baxter & CO's Art Journal Caravan. I was a member of the Caravan for four years in a row. Then, for some unknown reason, Tangie didn't host the Caravan last year. I think she freaked out for a year or something. But, lo and behold, the Art Journal Caravan is back this year for 2016! If you would like to take a fun journaling adventure, please join us. You can check out all the information at:

The theme word for this month is "uncaged." Below is my first digital compilation.

In Honor of Le Musée du Divan Rouge!

Betty Parker-Knowles created a very fun museum called "Le Musée du Divan Rouge." I created my second chandelier on black in honor of her museum.

Journal 52 - My Word For 2016

After spending literally months of being sick, I thought this word was the most appropriate to have for 2016 - both physically and mentally!

Journal 52 is a free year-long journaling group on Facebook.

My Chandelier Series

I've said it before, "I love chandeliers!" I would love to live in a log house lit by many styles of chandeliers. That's kind of a contradiction, but it fits my personality. I love nature, but I love color and sparkle. I love the rainbow trails crystals make when light shines through them. I also love leaded and stain glass windows. Maybe it's my French heritage coming through. Anyway, my family has never been the type to have chandeliers in the house. I guess I was always the oddball. Now, we don't have any money to buy a beautiful chandelier. I decided I could make a series of chandelier pictures, though, and maybe I could get them printed and framed. I still have to find a picture of an all crystal chandelier to add to the series.

What do you think? Do these capture the colorful elegance?

I found the crystal chandelier I wanted to use, so here is the fourth picture:
