Recent Works

I have been delighted to create for both Viva Las Vegastamps and USArtquest design teams. 
My work is showcased with the other DT members at VLVS blog, and USAQ blog.

Mica Keepsake Project
This project is hard to see clearly because of the mica powder and leafing papers.  It has an etherial look to it. 
Use PPA Matte and a Mica Tile to transfer a collage image to the surface of the Mica Tile!
VLVS Project for the December Daily Blog Hop.  This Old World Santa is wonderful.

Holiday card with faux stitching, wire, and drawn swirls.  Those trees are my fav. with VLVS.
Creating tag using the same basic design (all the way to the left).
Gilded Christmas Cards USAQ.
In 2001, Sue, owner of USAQ made this for me at The Artstamp Cafe.  We both taught and I had given her a pen and ink portrait of herself.


Article in Scrap and Stamp Art

While having my own book published and having tutorials in other books; I've continued to get published in magazines here and there.  Somerset Memories and Digital were the last two publications.  I have also had my art in ads for Viva Las Vegastamps.

I've come back to Scott Publications where I had much work/articles published back when it was Stamping Arts and Crafts. 

I am excited to promote and be published with company products I believe in and techniques I've taught over the years.  My book Creative Art Concepts for Papercrafts has a cloisonne' version of polished stone on shrink plastic.  Please check out my book for this technique!

I am always happy and thankful for the opportunities I have/had within the industry and being able to design and help inspire and help those who love art as much as I do.
