Chartreuse Project

Whew, just submitted my first piece of art to Somerset Studio Magazine.  The call was to submit artwork on the bold and beautiful color Chartreuse.  I struggled some as my preference is vintage of course but I stepped out of my box and took on the challenge.  I assembled a small album with various patterned cardstock papers, added photos taken by me, husband Franki, and daughter Carrie.  Going on line I found a few more photos/graphics which were added with minimal embellishments, well, minimal for me. The deadline for submission is August 15 so now it is a waiting game.  Here is a pic of my "work tray" filled with some of the materials used.

Here is a sample page from the album.

Wish me luck!  Photo of album cover will be added soon.

Monthly Photo

Oops, almost forgot to post the picture of the month .... and here it is.  The photo was taken by a friend who captured this amazing photo in her beautifully landscaped backyard a few weeks ago.  Enjoy.
