Travel Journal for Mystery Tour

The Mystery Tour was alot of fun.  Each day we would get our itinerary after the bus started rolling and then we would know what we would be doing for just that day. These are photos of some of my journal pages.

I painted these pictures at the  Samish Watercolor retreat.  I have been working on them since returning home and finally decided they were finished. 

I decided to add the gauzy material to this photo because I didn't know how to paint the net over the fish pond.
 It's a bowl.

I did add some collage and pen work to this watercolor.

This picture is from a photo I took in Santa Fe.

Painted this from a photo taken in the Caribbean.

October Craft Fair

I decided that I would make some items to sell at the craft fair this year.  This week I have been working on inventory. 

The following 2 photos are some paper mache boxes I decorated, using embossing powders, beads and charms.

Note pads of different sizes and styles.

Photos from Samish Island

I love this place.  Most of these photos were taken on some of the walks I took around the area.  The scenery is beautiful.  This is more than a place for a watercolor retreat, it is a place to enjoy nature.
