I just shot this footage to begin the learning process in order to produce tutorial videos. There is no audio by design. Baby steps...

I'm really enjoying working on my journals and planners through the Documented Life Facebook group and The Art Journaler Community traveling art journal.
This week's challenge was to add a bird to my Documented Life Moleskine planner. I was in a cut & paste bluebook kind of mood. I just love this biddy.
There are 14 of us participating in the The Art Journaler Community traveling art journal project. This is the 6th or 7th book I've worked in a mailed on with love. I can't wait to get mine back! The project will have taken over a year to complete. It's fun to share art.

I love the new shelves David put up to house my mounted stamp collection. This isn't even all of it, so he's putting up another shelf on this wall and four more on the adjacent wall to store/display my embossing powders, acrylic inks and sprays. I'm so happy!
Chloe & braved the chilly morning air to hunt for shells on the beach. We had an interesting conversation with the captain of a San Francisco merchant marine ship who told us to be on the lookout for Spanish galleon coins. We didn't find any but we'll keep looking!
Afterwards, we met David and Dylan for an al fresco lunch in the gorgeous sunshine at Lillie's.

I attended a polymer clay class taught by artist and fellow SOMMA member Kathy Plante. She is a fabulous teacher and I had a wonderful time learning about polymer clay and its amazing versatility.
We made several pieces, including canes and discs (seen above) which I plan to use in mixed media works in the near future. We also created some larger and more complex stacked pieces (below) to use as embellishments or focal pieces in other mixed media projects. I was so happy to learn how to use mica and pigment powder with polymer clay. I plan to purchase a pasta maker and toaster oven (dedicated to non-food use) soon so I can continue to learn and create with this wonderful medium!
