Low effort face. A couple of lines, a patch of color, and done! Because I'm easy like Sunday morning. 😁

While binding a larger #artjournal, I made a little bonus book from the offcuts. Turned out super cute! Wonder what I'll put inside? πŸ€”

All of that pattern and color shouldn't work together...but somehow it does. πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ #storyofmylife

I think that decorating papers may be one of my most favorite things in the whole world! Swipe left to get a peek at each of the papers in this stack. They're about to become pages in a new #artjournal. I'm creating a new sample for my "Make a Pamphlet Art Journal" class at #PapercraftClubhouse in Connecticut on March 4. Hope to see you there! 😘

1 Foam Stamp. 3 Printing Possibilities Demonstrated. βœ…βœ…βœ… I'm teaching 3 classes at #papercraftclubhouse in Connecticut March 3-5. The technique for creating (and printing) this seamlessly repeating pattern stamp is just part of the Friday night fun. I hope you'll join me for this class or the whole weekend! πŸŽ‰πŸ‘πŸŽ¨

Whether you like it or hate it, you can't deny that it's tough to look away. 😁😜 Today on the blog I'm sharing a bit about this new painting.
