Cityscape - August BJP

The fog shrouds San Francisco during the day and eve hours obscuring the views creating a mysterious edge. At a magic hour, the curtain of fog lifts to unveil a beautiful cityscape, sun, sky and Bay. The TransAmerica, Coit Tower, Bank of America buildings strut their stuff. The blue lapis poses as a fog beacon to warn others.
The fog begins to swirl in the afternoon hours and will soon hide the City again. The Tiny Tims used on the fringe are the fog droplets left behind on your skin and everywhere you touch.
My recent trip to San Francisco (my original home) was a memorable one.

August Round Robin

The Round Robin doll continues. This is Jo's doll. I added the dragonfly and small butterflies hanging off the side of the doll's head. On the back, I added the blue flower garden beginning with a blue bustle on the left side and circling around the back of the doll and back towards the waist.

Curio Board

This was a really fun mixed media class I took in Mesa put together by It is a husband/wife team (Mike Putman) and they never fail to amaze me with their mixed media talents. We all had a great time listening to their jokes, laughing and creating.
The focal features a die cut bird. The curio board has been covered with a faux metal look and embellished like crazy.
Doesn't that bird look hip with his top hat?

Right On, Angle

I wanted a simple design and choose right angle weave (RAW) for my bracelet. The RAW is adorned with Fire Polish AB 3mm beads and hex beads on the side. The focal area is a blue rivoli with peyote and netting stitch.

Simple Brown Journal

This faux leather journal w/keyhole is a standard type of book found in colleges and bookstores. A great gift for a graduate or a journal adventure.
