Main Image (bottom-center) is also from my collage sheets...the wings I am unsure where I received them as I have had them for awhile. Steampunk machine, flying bug, round bit(left of main image&upper right(dial)) and coffee tin are all by Land of Nod Studios.

Can you believe it??!!!

Can you believe it??!! Journal Junkin Online Workshop starts Monday June 14th?? Wow! Has time flown!! Are you ready to play? If you are not registered for this class yet...NOW is the time! After Sunday June 13th 2010 there will not be any refunds available! So, if you are still interested in this class go HERE to view the information or pay for your registration! You can of course join at any time before the end of the year because this is an on-going class till Dec. 31st you can play anytime you want...the only thing is that there will not be any refunds after the above date of June 13th 2010. Most all materials for this class are easily obtainable and pretty sure most of you already have most of what is needed on hand! It will be tons of fun and lots of new friendships to be made!!

I just had to pull out my paper art journal and
play a bit yesterday! I couldn't stand it any longer! It has been so long! Are you in shock?! LOL It was most enjoyable and got to play in my new tiny studio! It still looks like crap but it is getting there and will soon get some sneak peeks of it to share with all of you!!!

here is another page I created with only one tiny piece of collage....Yup the eye! That's it! LOL I drew and painted the rest of the page and then journaled (did I spell that right eh well) ANYWHO!! lol Journaled all over the page! WHAT FUN I HAD!! Been wayyyyyyyyyyyyy to long! I promise to do more paper pages!!
Since I have started my new journey in digital PNG kits at DeviantScrap I have been asked a few times about PNG images and can they be printed out for paper play? Of course they can!
The only difference between JPG and PNG is that the background is transparent and leaves just the image you were going to cut out anyways! :O) PNG just makes it easier for digi play. And you don't have to print out a whole collage can pick and choose just what you need to print out!! Niceeeeeeeeee! I will have some new kits soon, but for the moment I need to concentrate on the class!
Hope to see some of you there!!
Much love and hugs,

In other news...our almost 23 year old daughter and her two wee little ones have finally flown from the nest..We will miss them so much! I miss my grandbabies so much! The house is so quiet and might I say clean that I don't know what to do with myself! LOL
On a lighter note on that subject....I get my studio back! LOL Sorry dear daughter! **grin** I will be out tomorrow to get me a desk or large table and start jazzing up the extra room! Hoping we can find a long enough cord to go from our modem to the studio! haha It's our only option for me to have my computer in there so....When I have my studio put together I will be sure to take some pictures!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me!
Many hugs and much love,
