Jacqui's Memory

She was my friend, mentor, encourager, she was the first one to say, "You can do it yourself,"
This is her charcoal drawing of me, I have collaged it with my touch. She is no longer with us in body, she is with us in spirit. Thank you Jacqui.

I Believed...


This journal page was done over 10 years ago in an Artist Journal Swap. I just found it again.
When I was a little girl, the only piece of chicken that I was given to eat was the wing. My mom told me if I ate the wing, when I got older I would surely fly. I used to practice all the time by putting a towel around my neck and running real, real, fast waiting for the wind to pick me up.

Somerset Studio 1997

This was a card I made and sent to Somerset Studio, they published it in Somerset Studio Nov/Dec 1997. The beautiful woman on the right hand side is mine. I screamed my head off when I got a copy of the magazine in the mail. After all of these years, I had almost forgotten it until I saw a beautiful work of art that Sherry Goodloe of Got Art, published on her blog. This is one of my favorite stamps. I own 2 of them, just in case.

Decollage

I took a Decollage class, which is the opposite of Collage, you tear away pages until you see an image that speaks to you. It's kind of like old billboards by the roadside, when the weather has torn away parts of an image. Interesting.

I am so excited, and I just can't hide it!!

I got Mystele's Book, How to Hold a Day. Here is her wonderful work of art. It is simply divine. The cover is gorgeous. The pages are scrumptious!! Thank you, Mystele. You are a special young lady. I am so glad you are in my life and that you have been showered with abundant Grace.


Here are 2 photos of me. Did she get the essence of me, without ever seeing these pictures??This is the flip from bygone years.
