I spent this last weekend with my eldest daughter, Jennelle, and we discovered the art of Zentangle and after some research decided to give it a try.  The following is the artwork we created.

The pens we used were purchased at a rummage sale in Jennelle's subdivision and were drafting pens with very fine points.  We each bought a set of these pens and after checking the internet were surprised to find out they were valued at over $100 a set.  Jennelle's cost 3$ and I paid only 2$.  What a find.

I received information about a Marilyn Monroe Mail Art Project taking place in Holland and decided to give it a go.  All you had to do was make a piece of art and the subject matter is Marily Monroe.  There were not any restrictions so that left the door wide open for any type of artwork.

Tah Dah!!!


There was this swap offered where you create 20 ATCs and get 18 back in return.  Soooooo I gave it a try and whew quite a bit of creating going on.  Below you will see the cards I made.

This project is not due until August sometime, but thought I would get a jump on it instead of waiting until the end.

These are the returns from the Art 42 Big 20 Swap.  All in all a pretty successful swap!

Mother's Day Flowers

Beautiful flowers were given to me by Jennelle and Jon.  How thoughtful is that!  So nice to be remembered on a special day.

This is the card I made for an "Under the Sea" Swap.  Not my best work, but really wanted to try an ATC with mostly stamping on it.  We shall see what kinda returns I get.  Cards are off to VA tomorrow.

This first JAM was received from Canada and is in the shape of a little dress.  Very interesting.  I added the little buttons and the belt and now it is on its way to Florida to be finished.
I was the second artist to work on this JAM and made changes as shown above which included the black dots on edge and some chalk color to the shoe and glove.  I have now mailed the cards to PA to be finished.
This JAM was finished up by me.  It had a lot done when it arrived so I just added the corners and then returned it to PA.
This is a new JAM I am starting because a gal from Canada requested a JAM to work on.  I'll post the finished product when It is returned to me.
