It's All in the Details

One of my mottos when it comes to mixed media is more is more. There is always room for one more layer or a little more texture. 


Another one of my mottos is it is all in the details. I have learned that even the smallest detail, perhaps not even noticed at first glance, can elevate your artwork. Put those two mottos together and I bet you can guess that I like a lot of detail. 


I am happy to be a guest blogger at Spellbinders, sharing my favorite techniques to add details to my work. Read all about it and see more pics here.

Working Small: Two by Two

I love working on a small scale. A perfect example of that is the original journal I made for my 52 Card Pickup workshop.


Made from a standard deck of playing cards measuring 3.5 x 2.5 inches, this little project is filled with a whole lot.


I recently came across a book I made for my retreat last year in Taos, New Mexico. At 2 x 2 inches, this book makes the deck of cards seem large.


I do not find working on such a small surface limiting at all. Instead, I feel like a whole universe can be created on each tiny space.







How about you? Do you like working small? Large? Both?
