Oh I am doing more

 This is a 5x7" substrate with 4 ATC size areas NOT cut apart ... the gold leafing makes it kind of hard to photograph ...

 Well I have had a long dry spell so I am hoping 2022 will see my muse return ... so far she peaks in ever so often but not as fully as I would like ...

Slow Stitching, Spine Jewelry and a Card

This is slow stitching back in my day it was called basting ... I found out arthritis in my hands isn't very conducive to this anymore

This is book spine jewelry, it's added to the spine of a book by the clip on top and hangs down the spine

the card is just a simple but elegant one

A scrap collage challenge

 the only rules were to only make it from scraps and collage anyway or any size

the collage is on an 8 1/2 x 11 inches piece of cardstock that was coffee dyed

Yes I made another Junk Journal page 

the small brown paper bag holds this bookmark that is blank on the back for notes if needed

the back pocket holds a small tablet for taking notes

the little owl is a metal charm that was a happy mail gift it is colored with alcohol inks

In honor of Chinese New Year but I didn't have anything with an Ox on it so just ladies and a dragon

 This is another Junk Journal Page ... I used some fabric as well as cardstock, the strip on the right-hand side of the lady is a serendipity technique using scraps on double-sided tape and embossing powder ...

the Dragon is inside a paper CD holder

Doing some pouches

 ok so you ask what is a pouch ... well, in this case, it's taking an ATC or Baseball card plastic sheet holder and cutting it into individual protectors then adding cardstock that extends enough to make a flap over the top and decorating and filling it with little goodies ... oh FYI if you make these don't try to glue the plastic to the cardstock it WON'T stick use double-sided tape ...
