A wonderful gift from a beautiful lady- GINA AHRENS

I was so fortunate to received an art tool in the post today in the form of happy mail. This was such a fabulous surprise which, I must admit, had me in tears! Gina Ahrens from GINA AHRENS DESIGNS sent me three stabillo all black pencils. OMG!!!!! I have been longing for these pencils for such a long time and I not only have one but I have three of them now....and as I write this my eyes have started to water up once again.....I'm a sookie-la-la...LOL

I never expected to receive a wonderful thoughtful gift from a lovely lady as Gina. These pencils are no where to be found here in Australia and as I'm not one for buying on line (the postage is a killer!!!) these pencils were just a dream and on my wish list for 'one day'...LOL
A huge big THANK YOU Gina, this was a beautiful surprise xox

FUN WITH LETTER JOURNALS

I have been having an enormous amount of art fun by being in a swap LETTER JOURNAL group on facebook. There are usually four people in one swap where we all make our own letter journal out of any paper, magazine or pamphlet you would like to use. The size for the journal papers are 8inches by 8inches and this fits into a standard size mail envelope here in Australia. I have especially been excited about the recent steampunk letter journal swap where I participated in two at the same time. Below I am showing you my layout pages I did in the swap. Hope you enjoy!







I used a lot of collage in these pages but I think they turned out pretty awesome.
