Chinese New Year 2012 Year of the DRAGON

 Breathing Fire into the New Year - January 23, 2012 Legend has it that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each one. He announced that the people born in each animal's year would have some of that animal's personality. Those born in dragon years are innovative, brave, and passionate. Salvador Dali, John Lennon, and Mary-Louise Parker were all born in the Year of the Dragon. Red symbolizes fire, which according to legend can drive away bad luck.  For every order received until January 31, 2012, we will include a FREE RED collage,  truly beautiful collages for you.  Have you seen the 'Asian Dream' Ready to go Packages on the website?   Just in time to celebrate by sending a Chinese New Years card to your friends.   The papers are simply gorgeous!  The papers below are Asian Joss, handmade papers with gold leaf ~ STUNNING!  Natural Joss with no colors or dies, delicate and
Here are some non-paper projects from Jean.   Still utilizing a collage method for the chairs ..... I WAS ENAMOURED BY CHAIRS ~ I did a serious of fun recycled chairs with themes, the ones above are;  "Are we there yet?"   with vintage maps, postcards, bead trim, alpha collage and paints;  "The Apple Blossom Princess Chair" utilizing wooden embellishments, glass knobs, hand painting, collage art & hand mixed paints;   "Just because you can-can doesn't mean you should-should" - was inspired by a birthday card I received, it has dancing frogs and colorful trims of wood, plastic and paints.   The above piece was part of a study in spheres that I did in college.   The removable sphere was also a noise maker.  The glaze was Chun, with gold leaf applied after firing in a raku kiln.  The style was handbuilding and slab work. This piece is a raku firing, in a handbuilt coil manner.   After glazing, the piece was scrubbed with a wire brus

I'm in trouble now! FELTING is Wonderful!

Took my first class and I am hooked (or should I say stuck?) on the beauty, the simplicity and the possibilites for color and design.   LOVIN' IT

a small token of my love

It truly is tiny, just one and one half inches square. Untie the pretty silk ribbon, and it opens up-- as an accordion folded book, full of adorable Altered Pages inchies and sweet sentiments. (click on any photo to enlarge) Wouldn't this make a great Valentine? I had a wonderful time making this inchie book, and Jean has a kit all ready for you, if you'd like to try one (or two) for yourself-- A Small Token of My Love Kit . :)

Debut of our newest Designer

PLEASE WELCOME INGRID VIENT Ingrid's art can be quirky, just like her personality!   And we meant that in a good way! She easily breaks into song & dance. She loves color & uses it with abandon.   Ingrid's work can make you feel good and add a smile to your face! I have been a quilter for the last 18 years and a mixed media artist for the last few years.   I love working with rich layered colors, textures and shapes on paper, wood, fabric and objects of all kinds. From painting with acrylics and encaustics to embroidery on felted wool, there's not much I haven't tried. I enjoy crafting, decorating and reading murder mysteries. My latest addiction has been looking at the pinboards at Pinterest.
