~~~I've moved to www.halleshobbies.com ~~~
I'm an artist and SAHM from the upper mid-west. In addition to my passion for paper art and mixed-media; I enjoy sewing, painting, photography, jewelry making and gardening. I love finding ways to reuse, re-purpose and recycle everyday items into art or other basic utilitarian objects.
I'm working at getting back to the basics: healthy food, reduced chemical load in our home, exercise and spending time with family.
I mentioned before that I'm doing another round robin. Well, I finished the first spread in the first book. Teri's theme is Victoriana. She also requested that we use a postage stamp somewhere on our pages. Perfect...I already had colors in mind and knew I had a bunch of the same postage stamp. I once again used some fun new bits of stuff I've received lately such as the lace and organza.
I decided to use a real tintype and secured it with brads. I think its funny how they went in and gave her jewelry some "bling" with gold paint then pinked up her cheeks as well.
On to the next page...
I have a few ideas swirling in my head but I really must get some housework done today.
