Folk Art Snowman

From my studio today.
A little Folk Art Snowman.
I painted the body of the snowman and the snow flakes with Liquitex modeling paste to give it a more snow like texture.

From my knitting needles today

I have a new pair of socks. Just a basic sock pattern, knit on size 1 needles, top down. I used Deborah Norville Serenity Garden yarn, in the color Crocus. The pattern for this pair of socks can be found here  .

Mixed Media 5" x 7"

I had Fun making this mixed media piece. I cut up a Gelli print for the border. I used
Tim Holtz tissue wrap for the background.  Used Liquitex modeling paste and a stencil to make the bird in the center. I cut up one of my Zentangle's into a heart and added that to the mix. I embellished with Tiny Text sticker's and metal hearts in the top right corner. Lot's of color, fun and Texture in this piece. :)

Faux Madori Style Travelers Notebook

I made my note book using faux leather. I lined the inside of the faux leather cover with paper, so that the inside would look nice. I hand made my signatures. I had everything on hand except the elastic. I did have to purchase that. So my note book cost me about $1.69, that was the price of the elastic. I could not find black elastic. But I will keep looking for it, because I want to make another notebook. My notebook has 2 signatures. I may put 1 more signature in the note book because I do have room for another signature. The note book measures 6" x 9". I Love, love, love it!!!
