IT IS ALL ABOUT PAPER HERE AND WHAT YOU PUT ON IT! SMALL SKETCHBOOKS and ATC's ARE MY PASSION.

TRASH TO TREASURE FLOWERS...
I can help picking up stray white silk flowers out of the sale bin in any craftstore. This is what I make out of them. I layer the sizes, hold them together with a sequin and a brad...then I ink the up edges with my Kaleidacolor Rainbow Ink pad in the color I need to match my artwork. Then the magic happens...I mist them with my homemade glimmer mist so the shades lightly bleed into each other for a watercolor look. I love making something pretty out of nothing...I did a step by step tutorial on my other blog, here is the link http://misspeachsmeowz.blogspot.com/2011/06/monet-watercolor-blossoms.html maybe you might be inspired to play along.
Over the many years that I have been creating paper art, my clubs have increased. I began with CCCC crazy for cats card club in the summer of 2002. SBMAC sketchbook mail art club followed in the summer of 2004. I have been the moderator of that club for over five years now. I also belong to TWISTED SISTERS ATC CLUB. Once I began blogging for my little cat Miss Peach, a whole new world opened up as the world suddenly came into my living room. My group AMCA brings ATC's from around the world into my collection. ART brushes away the dust of everyday life for me...to quote a good rubber stamp!In my spare time, I live in a tiny cozy cottage in the desert of Washington with my beloved Dennis and a garden full of cats. I am from Bavaria and even though I am happy here, I miss it very much.
