See? Something new!

Finally...inspiration! Yaaaayyyyyy!!! This is something kinda new for me. I'm playing with acrylics on canvas with no stretcher I guess it's more like a wall hanging...or a door hanging in this case. It's actually a mixed media piece as I'm using dry pastels, paint, stamps, ink, collage, beads, charms, & fibers. This is the first little do dah from my new series I'm working on. It's titled, "Gift For A Friend"...OK, you got me...I don't have a great name for it, but it is a gift for a friends birthday. So this one is already spoken for, but there's more to come so stay tuned!

Well That's Cool!

Got this in my email today. It's from Schmap.

Hi Karmen,

I am delighted to let you know that your submitted photo
has been selected for inclusion in the newly released sixth
edition of our Schmap Seattle Guide:

It's for Volunteer Park

Here's the picture. It's of the conservatory at Volunteer Park in Seattle WA. It's from our family vacation there in August.

New Jewelry

This is one thing I've been up to lately...I've been taking my art & turning it into jewelry by sandwiching it between glass & soldering it around the edges. Then I put 'em on a ball chain. These are the first two. Stay tuned to see what else I come up where's that soldering iron????

Artsy Cards

These are card sets of my art & photographs. I mounted the photographs with those old fashioned looking black paper photo corners...that way the photo can be removed & reused or framed. I left them blank inside for folks to personalize. Then I wrapped them up in a 12x12 sheet of paper, put a black with white polka dot ribbon around it with a sticker on the front that has the description & pictures of the cards inside. They look so pretty all sitting together! These will be going to The Artist's Tree for the month of December. The next batch will go to my Etsy shop.

Catching Up...

I've not kept things up here very well. I've been playing on my Karny Life blog. So I'm updating things with some posts over at Karny Life. Hey, why not stop by Karny Life & get the inside scoop on what I've been up to ;)

So what have I been up to? Mainly cleaning & organizing the studio, but I do have a few lovelies to share. Let's start with my business package:
