Final Fabric Page

I just finished my last fabric page for a fabric RR I'm in. Unfortunately, this one is late, but I really didn't want to rush through it. The page is 6x8 inches.

Alphabetica for Heather

I had to make "M" and"N" pages for Heather this month. Her Alphabetica book theme is"Life Defined". We had to find a wood in the dictionary and define it through our art.

For "M" I chose the word Moments... and for "N" I chose the word Nymph.

Raising money for Ovarian Cancer

This is a posting in my Altered Art Swap Yahoo group. A "Friends through Art Charm Necklace" is up for auction with 100% of the proceeds going to ovarian cancer research. Please post information regarding the auction on your blogs. The auction is for the necklace and a copy of Stampington's Belle Armorie that featured the article on it. It can be found on eBay by doing a search:

Friends through Art or Item number: 370069098491

Let's raise some money in honor of Peggy's friend Cathy Marks and to support early detection, improved testing, and finding a cure for ovarian cancer. Thanks in advance for supporting the auction. Special thanks to the artists who contributed charms to the necklace: Sanna Burgess, Barbara Burkard, Judy Evitts, Peggy Gatto, Angie Hall-Haviland, Caryl Hoobler, Kimberly Moore, Carol Myrick, Tally Oliveau, Tanya Peacock, and Jennifer Rogers-Daniels. And . . . a huge hug filled with appreciation to Peggy who initiated this project and took all of the charms to create this amazing piece of wearable art.

We are on the last letters of the Diva Dictionary in my Altered Art Divas group. I had the letter Z. I was going to do Zestafarian or Zestfest, but I wasn't able to think of how to art it. I'm trying to practice "Zenartics" in my life, hence, the dictionary page!

Lazy, hazy days of summer...

Here are my Moo cards for July. The theme color was BLUE. I'm doing the Gothic Arch swap in Paper Whimsy. I already made 3 for the swap, and I decided to make 3 more.

That's all for now!

Happy July 4th!!!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful day filled with family and friends. It's raining here; the only fireworks we'll see will be on the TV. Oh well..... I'm participating in a Black and White Zetti style 4x4 book that we, as a group, will be submitting to Somerset for theirBlack and White art call. We needed to use our hometown newspaper as the background. The top one was my first one and I started to lose momentum after awhile. It just didn't come out the way I saw it in my head.
Now this one I LOVE! Not quite as Zetti-ish, but it flows better for me. I'm going to send both to Barb, who is putting the book together.
These are the first Moo cards that I've ever done. Live and learn. I find this to be a hard size to work with, but I was up for the challenge!
I think next month's Moos will be easier to do (I hope).
