The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

Power of Me Altered Book Summer Day camp Adventure - Post 5

I have just finished working with five 8 - 9 year old girls, teaching the altered book art medium in a day camp last week; I called this camp the "Power of Me Altered Book Adventure"...They completed "Power of Me mosaic" pages with power words, "I am Special" page, "Self-Portrait" page, a window page, family pages, pet pages, and we got to do inner diva book marks as well at the end of the week...here is a series of posts with a photo montage of the week...enjoy!












Sammy's pages and sharing moments!
