My Name is Barbra Joan and I am a Paperholic!

Yes, there I've said it.. When I say I'm 'playing with paper'  it usually means that I'm making mini art journals.  I don't do scrapbooking, but one look at the hoarding of papers might make you think otherwise.. Papers now come in collections or  'themes'  and they all mix and match.. One trip to Violettes (my favorite store) and I start to get the shakes.

  I follow a site called Graphic 45 ... tons of ideas and take off from there..  they send me their newsletter almost every morning.. so if I'm not painting, this is what I'm doing. It's a Happy Thing !  I'll show you more on my other blog.   Art Hearts Journey.   BJ

  1. What a very cool bird to hang in one's art room or from a chandelier somewhere else in the house.

  3. I'm a paperholic too--I always look forward to the "back to school" aisles filled with paper and notebooks ...
    The birds are lovely--what a great idea!

  4. Wow! I can finally comment. I've tried and tried to no avail. Finally figured it out! Third party cookies.. what a pain. Love the birds and the paper. We all have our vices don't we. I hoard shovels... paper would be sooooo much easier.

  8. What a wonderful way of using up your excess creative energy once you have put the paint brushes down! It really is beautiful :0)

  11. BarbraJoan, What wonderful pieces of art! Suddenly I thought of my friend Belinda's award winning collages. Check them out in Gallery 2 here http://belindalima.com/pg_gallery2.htm.

    Sorry to hear you have surgery coming up. I will keep you in my prayers and send good thoughts for a speedy recovery. Hugs.
