I love this 5 x 5 art

I just love doing these 5 x 5 inch pieces of art! They use a little calligraphy, some art paper that I've made in the past, and sometimes photography and it's just fun to put all the pieces together and make them look good. I hope they look good to others! It would be nice if I could eventually sell some....I'm trying to get enough done to offer in books on a new etsy site. I'm thinking of calling it Build-a-book. But I will also offer the 5 x 5 prints by themselves or in frames. I think a grouping of a bunch of these would look cool on a wall as well. Just need to keep creating.

new 5 x 5 art

I've finally got my office organized and started back to work on some art for my small book idea. I really enjoy doing these little pieces of art. I need to get enough done to start an etsy shop dedicated to my special order books.

Catholic Schools Week

I made a banner last week for our parish school to celebrate Catholic schools week. The theme was "Dividends for Life". At first I thought "what am I going to do with that?" Then I must have gotten divine inspiration because I came up with a great idea--make it a little like a dollar bill. I spent 4 hours making it and listening to the soundtracks to the TV show GLEE. I had a blast! I was really proud of how it turned out too. It was 24 feet long so very difficult to get a picture of, so I am posting the center piece only.
