All of you "old timers" and some of you newer people may remember me, but I was the one that started this group, back when Thaneeya first started this site....I also started the SWAP art group, and probably some of the others, and just havent remembered yet...anyway, I am back, and I am going to be hanging around my groups and participating and listening to your probs if you have any, etc...I am so glad to be back, and I hope you will be glad to have me...as a way of introducing myself, here is a bit of my art journal work,...I feel sometimes that speaks better for me than my words do....Also, if you notice the last 2 pics..I am starting a series of mixed media/collaged flowers and tiny houses..they are both very tiny, usually about 2 x 2, and are really considered "mini art"...the flowers are called "Scared Garden" ad the houses are called "Tiny Town"...If others are inerested as well, I may need to open a "miniature art" group as well...we will see

ok, here are a few of my recent pages...I will be around if anyone wants to discuss or whatever...let's get this party started!!!

Below are some more pics

Hello my Dearest Laura, it is so great to have you back here and see all the beautiful pages and tiny cards you have made. Your Tiny Towns look just soo adorable, an your pages are gorgeous as always.

I wasn't that creative, only making some cards/small journal pages for a Dutch swap, but I did manage to finaly turn my boring, black front from my latest journal, a Canson MixedMediablock, into something I absolutely love:

The line at the botom says: I am a perfectionist, but in my art journal I do feel free to experiment with colours and styles.
I will show some of my 4x4inch pages for the swap this weekend, right now it is time for me to call this a day, it is just past 1 am.
Have a wonderful weekend, hugs Riya.

Hello sweetie..that is a beautiful job you have done!! So gorgeous of a woman, and all of your colors are just wonderful!! I will talk to you soon, and I am trying to get all of these packages out the door, but Tony is staying so ill, it has been a hard go...hopefully  can get everything out tomorrow!

hi gals

wow i love your journals. i play in them too-i have a few! but i'm not sure what to post here. i'll find something that fits maybe / maybe not...because your pages are so complex! mine ar starting out with layers...getting there! ok hold the fort! i'll be back....

ok so i've posted a lot of mine in the gallery already so i have loads more but not call photographed. here is one:

shell xxonly a couple o' layers here..stamps collage mostly

i have a couple o' mixed media pieces i have on my wall - they are mixed media and could just as easily gone into this group.

ll put them here.do we have a mixed media group or what? i don't remember. because my journal pages ARE mixed media! so are everyone's mostly i think. i'm a bit confused! i can't find the other recent one on my macbut i'm starting to work small now so i might be able ; SHOULD be able to scan my journals now instead of photographing them on my kitchen floor! i'll be back.
