Girlfriends Sketchbooks....


Two down - two more to go.
Tried some new techniques on these two sketchbooks - bobbin painting and mixed media wet stamping, then stitching. Working on these was quite enjoyable.
This is just a sneak peek. I just mailed these off today so I don't want to spoil the surprise.
I hope Suki and Karen like them. So heads up Lynette - these two are coming your way. Oh, and I have Kate's on the machine and Soulbrush's is drying - so they will be off to you by Monday.

Whew - glad those are done. Four at a time is a little stressful.















Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.

ooo, 4 is a lot of creativity to come up with at once. They look cool (what I could see)

Cathie, seeing these pages you made in person is a real treat and photos just can't do them justice, they are gorgeous! I just wanted to let you know that these 2 sketchbooks arrived in my mailbox today, so I have my work cut out for me and I'm going to get on these 2 books before the next 2 arrive. Isn't the weather fine today, it's only in the '70's today up here in Virginia and we have the screens open!

Beautiful work Cathie. Look forward to seeing more when you are able to show them off
