The Slump is Over

After months of not creating, seems my "mojo" came back the past 2 wks-finally.
I've been re-doing a chest of drawers my sister didn't want. It will go in the artroom for storage.
It's being painted white-where i haven't papered it w/vintage book pages. These are some of the drawers w/out the handles on them-those may get painted too. The top and sides are also covered w/the paper. Haven't decided yet if i will glaze over the white paint to antique it, but when it's all done, i'll post a picture.

I've also done two wall pieces. The little boy in airplane and the girl holding the heart.
I really like them-and the little boy is hanging in my living room for now-but he may be a
gift for someone who has a birthday this month~haven't decided :)
I'm also taking an awesome online class: Full Tilt Boogie. I have heard great things about Mary Ann Moss in the past-her "Remains of the Day" class so knew this one had to be good too. I was right. The class was actually a gift-and i am loving it. I think it's what got my spark going again to create. Her videos are well shot, not stuffy and dry. The directions are concise, the PDF info is great-i highly recommend this class if you've thought about it. It will show you some new bookbinding stitches, great ideas for book covers and using a vintage album~ I've made my practice book-but it's packed up to be mailed off to someone special . When i get a real one made, i'll post that too~ (click on link FTB above to go to mary ann's blog and click the sidebar for class info)

Hi Donnaj.
Those wall pieces are wonderful. love the colors.
Thanks for visiting over at my place and for your lovely comment.
I have just started on the Full Tilt Boggie - how fun to see you´re doing it too. Still gathering suppliers though, as everything is so hard to find over here. Can´t wait to start.
Wishing you a lovely day
