A couple of months ago, my good friend Tina Walker got a group of ladies together to do a Pinewood Derby Car makeover. I was immediately on board!

I haven’t done a project like this in a while, but I was inspired to created something really girly and glamourous. The exact opposite of what you would expect a pinewood derby car to look like. So I went all out. This baby is covered in bright colors, ribbon, flowers, bling, and GLITTER (oh yes, I did!).

Mixed Media Vintage Fabric Book

Good afternoon! Today I am sharing a quick (heavy on the pictures) post on my latest project–a mixed media fabric prayer book featuring vintage and antique ephemera, lace, and papers.

It started when I was browsing Etsy in search of vintage fabric. Somehow I ended up finding these beautiful prayer cards from ThisOldCouch and immediately was inspired to create something with them.

This originally wasn’t intended to be a book. I was just playing around with some muslin and thinking I might make a banner or prayer flags, but after I finished several pieces they seemed to work together nicely as a pretty little book.

Here is the finished book, with some close ups. This was such a fun and meaningful project for me!

I’ve also received word that I will have four of my digital art journal pages published in Stampington’s Art Journal magazine in April, I will keep you posted on when that hits the shelves! 🙂
In the meantime, I have a few other projects that I am working on including a brand new website!!! Hopefully that will be making it’s debut here pretty soon.

Have a beautiful day!!
