Paper Art, Digital Art & A New Kit! Long Post!

"Fish Bubbles" by: Nancy Baumiller
Hello!! This first piece is completely, a paper pieced collage! With the exception of an acrylic painted back ground and bubbles! All the rest is paper piecing! Fun it was!

And there goes that non-highlighting issue where I can't make my links look nicer...and smaller for that fact! LOL That's it! I am writing Blogger! haha

"Time To Remember" by: Nancy Baumiller

This second piece of digital art was created with my newest kit, More Odd People & Borders! Which we will get to here in a moment!

New funky art and something very lovely & inspiring!

Hello again! I have had a bit of free-time, just a bit to play with some of the images in Odd People & Borders and found it to be very fun! These 2 pages are digital, I will have some paper art journal pieces to share very soon! I wanted these 2 pages to look closer to what I would do in an art journal. Very difficult for me, but it has been something I have been wanting to do this year! I think this first one shows it off a more than the second one. I also played with some of the tools in Photoshop....some of them very unfamiliar to me...with no time to take classes I tend to explore the tools on my own. That's just how I roll!
"In all that you do give 110% of yourself." and to "Savor The Moment". Ya, I wrote that! HA! ;o)
At to the "Savor The Moment" ....a moment happens so quickly and then it is gone. So take another moment to savor it! *smiles*
I believe in creating our own magic in life, not just the pulling the rabbit out of a hat trick! Real magic happens everyday! Like receiving something unexpected in your mail box from a dear friend! When your children accomplish something they never thought they could! Or just having an "AH HA" moment! It's all magic...dontcha think?! These days getting your family together for a meal at the dining table is magical all by itself! Little things...can cause a big impact in our day! Treasure them!
And now for some exciting news!
The very wonderful, talented and good friend (oh there goes that "no letting me highlight links again)
Kate Crane of The Kathryn Wheel has went and done it! Something totally wonderful! Very proud to announce her new DVD's!! She even used some of my imagery in her pages of her art journaling DVD's!! I have to say that Kate is very charming and has a delightful accent! She explains things so calmly and thourougly that is so enjoyable to sit back and listen as she tells about art journaling! Better than an A+ in my book!! :O)
You definately won't be sorry to pick these DVD's up!

You can find them all right here:
Again, my sincere apologies for the non-highlighted links! (can ya tell it is bothering me? lol)
As I said earlier, I will be back with some paper art journaling pages! Nothing like getting your hands dirty with some paint and glue! And of course the paper trail through the house! tee hee hee
Much love and hugs,
Don't forget to look for the magic in your day and savor the moments!
Til next time!
