I submitted the following project to Through The Door Magazine which is an online magazine
They loved it and I won!!   I won a gift certificate to Amazon and got published in their magazine.
This is so exciting, as I love making collages, This was one of my favorites.  My little essay
said I loved this picture because it reminded me of how beautiful my mom was.

Good Morning!   I was just asked to be a part of a Design Team, Making Memories Crafting by Sonia Talbot.  I was nervous to dive into this but I accepted!!  I can make anything I want and it is on a monthly basis.  I am really looking forward to working with Sonia and making some great items!!

Sunday, was a great day.  I had my art sisters over and we all made a Tim Holtz inspired collage.
Mine was a Steampunk theme

Four Year Anniversary Present

Our four year anniversary is coming up. I made my hubby a wooden wine box.  I painted it with
Liquitex Brown Sable paint and went over it with Prima's Art Alchemy powder.  Then I went over
the edges with a black Caran D'Ache marker.
I put our wedding picture in the middle and put stickers on it that say PERRI. FOUR YEARS
On the inside I painted it and put the powder then put F&J. TRUE LOVE.
I will put a bottle of champagne in it.  I also ordered a NY Times Newspaper from that day and had all
our Wedding Day information put on it.

She is one of my very favorite artists and she is now doing online classes due to so many requests
I signed up right away and it starts March 1st.  Can't wait

In the meantime, Izzy, Theresa and I made collages, each of us did a little different one but we pooled our supplies together and here is how mine came out.  I am very happy with it and it is now hung up on my wall.

Vintage Circus Train

Well I didn't win the Crafty's award but I was a nominee.  The ceremony was held at
Baruch College in Manhattan and they even had Lisa Loeb there as a guest.  My train
was shown on the big screen and we got a shot of it from home.  It was exciting to watch
the winners from home since I couldn't be there in person.

Well here it is 2017 and I have been pretty busy making a journal and altering books.  None are finished as yet but as soon as they are, they will be on my blog.

I have been taking drawing classes but they have been very difficult as the teacher had us drawing upside down!!  I plan on taking more pastel classes in the near future.  Landscapes are my favorite

Next week some friends and I will be making an altered canvas of a lady and I am looking forward to that as the final product looks awesome.  That will be another addition to the blog when it is finished

Some GREAT news, I was asked by ALPHA STAMPS to be in a pool of guest designers
as they had seen my blog and liked my work.  This is very exciting for me and I can't
wait to get started.

So things are progressing and as they do, I will keep adding to my blog
