Art Journal Caravan Week 17 - Warhol

My computer is an iMac. It has a program called Photobooth. It allows you to take photos of yourself. One of the settings is "Warhol." Not the best, but it's fun.

Gypsy Altered Book

I'm finally working on my first altered book! I've been wanting to try it for a long time.

I want to add some metal corners to the cover.

This is the inside cover and first page.

First double spread.

The second double spread.

I've got plenty more to go. I'm kind of learning as I go along, so there are plenty of imperfections. But I'm learning that makes art more interesting.

Digital Whisper Blog Challenge - Mouse

This is actually an oldie but goodie. I've always loved Star Trek! I'm old enough to have seen the original TV episodes the first time they were shown. We thought they were so "futuristic." It's hard not to laugh when you compare them to today's new Star Trek movies.

This next one is especially for Patti! I wrote a crazy poem about a boy who lost his mouse. I created the pictures and had it put into a flip book. Unfortunately, I lost the link for the book and I can't show you online.


I love trees!

Chair 3

It's crazy, but I find these chandelier and furniture pictures very relaxing to create.

Art Journal Caravan Week 14 - Paul Klee

This is a real physical art page, so it's a little weird. But weird is fun, and Paul Klee's work is definitely weird! :-)

Color Me Positive Week 14 Challenge - Hope

Yep. It's silly. But cupcakes give me hope. Maybe there will be a big cake yet to come!
