Art Paper Doll


I'm learning to download the pictures from my camera to this machine, but VISTA won't run my favorite editing program, so I have to find a new one. I've been using an old program called Micrografx Webtricity. It was bought out by Corel, years ago and I knew it would, eventually become obsolete, but I was really hoping...sigh....
Anyway, here is a picture, straight from the camera, of a recent project. I wish I could noodle with it to give you a better view, but that will come in time, I guess. This is a little, artist paper doll that I included in a birthday card to my daughter. I also included samples of all the textured paper I have been painting, lately. It's my latest obsession. I've been using it in my art journaling...another obsession.
There's a lot more I'd like to share, but I have to keep it simple, until I'm more familiar with this machine, though it sure is good to be back!

Nice 2 see you posting once more...I browsed through many many months ago and got hooked on your blog tunes. I bookmarked your blog and tune in whenever/wherever Im tinkering on my laptop to listen while on my net-time. Selfish as it is...please permit me to continue the habit, and, enjoy your posts.

Thanks, Bryon! I'm glad you like my song choices, as they are transending, for me. "I Choose Love" I wrote myself and I especially like to spread that one around, because I believe it to be a healthy affirmation in a crazy and confusing (but wonderful) world! Drop by, anytime!
