In the past I have always selected, made and designed my own elements for digital work. But, I am finding it just so much fun and interesting to work with other designers elements... as well as my own. In the picture "The Last Librarian" the peeling paint is mine.. and the rest from design packets I purchased..
I am delighted to be one of the blogs in Karen Valentine's 2015 Blog hop.. Karen is hosting the event from her lovely My Desert Cottage blog!Most of the blogs posted yesterday..so be sure to go to Karen's blog HERE to see the wonderful where beautiful art is being created.
The Studios you will see in this blog hop are amazing.. I very much wish mine looked like them!
Mine really incorporates my entire home...so I am going to just let you see into my world for work and creating... some of it is pretty and some of it is very utilitarian.. really just hard working spaces. I will also tell you I did not clean or pretty up for this "photo shoot".. it is really just the way it looks when I work! And at least once a week I have a three year old who loves to rearrange and play, too! He really loves the tiny doll skates.. which often are converted into tiny vehicles!
Each Day" Harmer "the Magic Bear.. greets me .. Will I add dolls to my work today?? Or.. will it be a watch..??
A Little vintage Putz house might be fun..
A few finished pieces... ready for a gallery or just leaving a gallery.. one never knows..
Ahhh.. a favorite old cabinet cards.. to scan or use..
Old albums and toys to use.. An old file cabinet for ribbons, thread and other goodies...
