Some exciting news


But first, a look at an interesting piece of canvas I've been working on. I sketched this fairy and flower on canvas months and months ago. I colored her with Nupastels (artists soft pastels by Prismacolor) and set her aside. I wasn't sure I liked her enough to really use it as it. I have ideas now, so I covered it with heavy gel medium and put a layer of tissue paper on it before I collage it. I thought I'd show you a quick "before" shot.

Sorry about the lousy photo. It's late and I'm trying to get this posted and get to bed, before my husband divorces me for being more in love with the computer than I am with him.

And now for my exciting news. I'm the newest Altered Deck crew member for the SS Reflections Ezine! It's a monthly ezine with a "round the world" cruise theme. I was shocked, stunned, absolutely thrilled, to be accepted to this crew. There are some very amazing artists on the crew, and I completely expected to have to apply five or six times over the next year or so before I could even hope. Wow, is this just a great way to start a new year!!

I've also tagged you in my own special way(I don't know how to put links in my blogposts, I'm a technological dinosaur you know).

You should stop crafting and blogging and do more stuff with you husband, I'm sure that he would love to go out and see a movie or to dinner.
