What I have been up to recently...

First of all I have terrible lighting in my house so have to
always change the colour and lighting in Picasa to get my
pictures to look almost the way they should be, lol! Also
this is the first time I tried the collage function as I did
not want to load photo after photo, obviously I need more
practice at it as it has cut off parts of one of my pictures.

Yesterday I spent the day with my friend Lisa taking a basic
then an advanced Zentangle class at
The Frenzy Stamper in Scottsdale, AZ. We had an hour break
for lunch and had a really delicious lunch at a place
recommended to us by Debbie the owner of Frenzy Stamper,
just cannot remember the name of it, sorry!
So the picture that got cut off is of some of the Zentangles
we learned yesterday. If you want to know more about this
art form then go here.

The other pictures are of the projects we made at Creative
Escape last weekend. These are the ones that I have now
finished, I still have 3 more to go, hoping to get some more
done tomorrow. As always if you have any questions about
these projects or anything else just ask.

Fun stuff, Marlene! My eye went directly to the adorable round box (or tin) with the tulle tied on top. I LOVE tulle! :o)

Really great projects you have posted here! xo

So you use Picasa too, eh? I'll have to give it a go, then. Someone else recommended it too. Lovely pics, and so nice you're able to take classes close to you!

Love all of your wonderful artwork. Cool zentangles. Would like to try some classes on that one day. You are so fortunate to have that wonderful store in your area.

Oh my! You've been very busy! These are all so pretty! Love the vintagey wallboard! I've been wanting to give that zentangle a try and just haven't managed to find the time yet. Maybe someday...haha! Thanks for sharing your beautiful work! :)
