Sketchbook Project 2012, Pacific Paradise

A sneak preview of my Sketchbook Project 2012 
I have also created 2 videos one of me just going through the pages and one with me reading the text on the pages.  Im not sure what I want to do with either of these videos but I have to send my sketchbook in today so I thought I would create something while I still had my book. 
I am going to have it digitized and will post here when that is done. 

In other news,  yesterday was my very last first day of school.  When I am done with my last three classes (Book Arts, Mixed Media 2, and Senior Portfolio) I will graduate!  I never thought that day would come.  It has been a long journey and I am almost to the finish line.  

Starting school again means you will be seeing lots me update from me.  I hope you like what you see :)

iPhone- Climb Every Mountain, Currents

I am really loving my iphone 4S and instagram so I am going to be uploading more iphone/instagram photos.
I want to embrace all aspects of my creativity, not just painting.

Climb Every Mountain
From a hike my husband and I went on. Beautiful expanses. 

Beautiful ocean currents. I love the colors and the play of lights, reflections, and shadows.

 Message in a Bottle
Found on Topanga Beach.  The message reads "I want to see The sun At Midnight and feel it to be magical, fulfiling and life changing."

Love, Peace, Joy

 Love, Peace, Joy

linocut on printing paper

I make Christmas presents for my family every year. This year I choose to work in linocut. I wanted to create something that could be hung all year round. I love languages so I explored the use of languages as expression. The background is created with the main word in many languages. The each image is 5 x 7 and is printed on 8 x10 printing paper.

DIY Frame Earring Holder

 Earring Holder
16 x13
I saw this on etsy being sold for $50 and thought "hey I could make that". I usually dont do tutorials but I thought this would be fun to share. 
The sheet of aluminum was $30 but I could use it make 6+ more holders. It is a 3ft x 3ft sheet that I bought at Lowes. 
Let me know if you make this. I would love to see your take.
