What I did here was just cut strips of my handmade painted decorated papers and started sewing the strips together. Then I turned the paper and sewed it the other way.......then I went the other way and so on........you get the picture...........
When I do my papers, I always do the fronts and backs.........it has come in handy in this class a lot . It has given me a lot of choices when one is cutting up the paper in different shapes and piecing them together...... It gives you a lot of choices of color and design.

Well, Craft Monkeys that's it for today. Need to go and play in the paint, ink and paper. I am playing with some Neon colors which is really unusual for me.
I am a mixed media artist and dabble in all kinds of art. The most important thing to know is that I am a big thrift store, swap meet, bargain hunter for art supplies and will definitely be telling about it on my blog. Back in 1994 my Mom got me into rubber stamping but I quickly went from that to decorating papers, making journals, working with acrylic paints, doing found object jewelry and altered art. My creative life really changed after attending art retreats like ArtFest, Art and Soul and Art Unraveled. I now do a little of everything.
This was my favorite doll who had red hair just like my Mom so I named her Juanita. This will date me but this picture was taken around 1950. I am sitting at the front of the home that my father built in Canby, Oregon. I still have her to this day and she still looks as good as new. I think everyone was really shocked that she stayed in such good condition as I don't think I was that careful with other toys. Lots of special memories since my Mom is gone now.
