{Shabby Text and Touches}

This is just a sneak peek of what I *plan* to use in the new tiny studio space. The Expedit will hold some of my favorite collections. I have been narrowing down what to display on it for the last several weeks. At the rate I am going, it will be done next October.

This antique frame once belonged to my Great-Grandparents…James and Elsie Ford. They lived in Redford Township, Michigan on a farm until the city of Detroit bought their land many years ago. I actually have many pieces that belonged to them, and were then passed along to my maternal Grandparent’s. Someone at one time painted the frame white and it has just been sitting around the basement. I plan to do something unique with it on the wall of our newly painted bedroom.

A few items that I also finished this week. The small journal uses a collage image from Digital Collage Sheets which was printed on to fabric. The little mini journal is a combo of pattern paper and fabrics. I was pleased with the results.

Last, a Christmas stocking that I completed this week. There have been several requests for these again this year. I forgot how labor intensive they are too make, but the end result is always worth it.

I am a dabbler. I love to create using all sorts of mediums...pattern papers, stamping, fabric, assemblage, collage, altered art, a never ending smattering of whatever strikes my fancy in whimsical moments. I find creating allows my soul to be fulfilled and love to spend hours in the studio.
