coming together


















bella is nearly done- pretty happy with her, hope tracy is too.... i'll look at her for a while to see if there are little touch ups....















i went to the friends of the library book store to find a dictionary & hopefully bird book to maybe use next week. found that and more. the red book is an old social studies text that could be an altered book.....

when i took this to the register, the woman said something about it being old, and i said if it's something cool that you want, take it because i am going to use it for art. she said you could frame the cover. i didn't tell her it would probably be torn apart....



















kristy left me some paper to play with, and this is what happened:



















these are on rice paper, which is sort of transparent, tho you can't really tell here.
















this shows the texture of the paper somewhat.



















these are all going to hailey next week, we'll see which i use. i will probably have so much stuff i won't know where to start! but i can pull out whatever i don't use at some later point when i'm stuck.....

zella is bringing metal squares over tomorrow. i need to figure out what to print on silk lazertran to try on those. also need to pull together some things to photocopy for transfers. i do have boatloads of photos- it takes time to go through, even tho i think i'm organized..... except for all of the ones just in by date shot- ARGH!!!!

ah well, keep finding little gems...... and now, to bed.

btw, i did lose stuff when i transferred to vista. thought i had backed up my documents, and i did get the folder, and the folders beneath it, but i didn't get the loose files. and that's where what steve was looking for was. crap. what i get for not making a list of the files and checking what was on the external hard drive.....
