Studio J Custom Photo Wells

The wait is over - this is an awesome tool! Print any size photo you might need with this tool now. I love this option to be able to size my photos and manipulate them the way this new option allows me to do that. While I wait in our temporary apartment, I will have some time to sit around. I guess, I know what I will be doing - I will be sure to share some of my layouts with you!

Marker Magic

Close to my Heart markers are not Copic marker look a likes, but they are alcoholic markers and you can do some really sweet things with them! Have a look and learn. I love our short little clips, you can learn so much from them. You can create some nice art with our inexpensive markers in a short time. With the blending pen, we offer you can take color away for a great effect. Use those markers and play and see what you can create - have fun. Send me a picture of your art and I would love to share :).

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!
