~Vintage Glue Book Swap with Mary of Green Paper~

 A While Back I received an Email
from Mary of Green Papers Inviting Me 
to Participate in Her 
Vintage Glue Book Swap.
 She was Inviting all of her Students 
that took her Wonderful
I couldn't turn down another Opportunity
to have Fun Making these pages.
 Mary's Class was 
the Very First Class
I took in Mixed Media Art.
She taught me all of the Basics 
in Making and Creating Beautiful Collages!
 Her Course Challenged me 
to Try so many  New Things!
Chalk, Matte Gel Medium...and Gesso!
What the World is Gesso??! 
Tape Transfer ???????What..?
 My First Collage...... Oh My......
She was so Sweet and
Encouraging with her Comments.
"Wow...I would Have Never thought of doing that....."
I am Teasing! She didn't say that! 
She was Kind!
 I feel like I have come a long way 
since that first piece. 
I think that I still have  
Much More Room for 
Growing and Trying New Things!
 Theses Pages where so Much Fun to Create!
Now they get mailed off to Mary
where she will assemble a Book for Me.
Not Just Me but all Who Participated. 
Each of will receive a Book 
with an assortment of Collage pages 
from various participants.
Quite an Undertaking for Mary I think!
She only asked for an Extra Page
to keep for herself. 
(Of Coarse there was a Small Fee
for Materials for Book Assemblage)
I Hope she shares that book on her blog!
I am sure it will be Gorgeous!
 On the Back of each page 
we were asked to provide our
Email and Blog address.
When My Book Arrives 
I will Be sure to share it with you all!

Have a Wonderful Day 
My Friends!

~The Secret Garden~

I have been in the Studio Creating Again 
and I am Glad to be Back !
When my Kids are Home 
I find 
I want to Hang out with them 
so my Studio Work goes on the Back Burner.
This is there first week back to school.
So Many Ideas! So Little Time!
This is a Little Book I Created for a 
Very Sassy New Friend!
This is My Thank you Gift 
for the one thing I managed
to Squeek in this Summer.
A Mixed Media Artist Supply Swap 
With Paper Whimsy!
This is there Very Least I could Do for her
with the Wonderful Package She Sent me!
It is Like Having Your Best Girlfriend 
Sending you all the Things 
You Love and Adore!
She was Very Generous and Kind!
We were suppose to make a ATC Thank You..
 Well you know I can never turn down
a Chance to have fun!!
 I cut out ATC size pieces of watercolor paper
and glued a length of ribbon to create my Hinges.
Next I layered my Images on each pages over the Ribbon.
I Think that next time I would go Ahead and Glue All of the Ribbon 
to the Watercolor Pages First. Then Assemble the Book. 
I think it be easier  then the Way I did it!
~Ethereal Beauty~
I made a Little Envelope Pouch to send it in!
I Had So Much Fun Making this!
I Hope She Enjoys it.....
