Hey Crafty People!  I am a subscriber to Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine.  I love it!  Click on the link below to go to Cloth Paper Scissors website:


This wonderful magazine comes 6 times a year and it's packed full of artsy/craftsy mixed media, art journaling ideas and how to's.   

Downloaded design from Freepik.com;one of my favorite sites for downloadable graphics to use in paper-crafting and more.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for more information!  Thanks for looking and please stay tuned for lots more.


The photo below is just a screen shot to show you dates and session numbers.  Please click this link to register.


Please note:  I do not have a "brick & mortar" business location. I do my crafting at home and then usually instruct at a local county rec center.  One of these days, I hope to have a studio with some classroom space. 

I have had a few crafting get-togethers at my home, but there just isn't much room for more than 2 additional people and myself.  Crafting is very messy you know, and it's hard to work when you don't have enough space to spread out.  But one of these days...

Oh well, until then, I'll dream about the ideal crafting and instruction space.  

Click the ADULT COLORING/COLLAGE Examples page. I just added some photos of my recent collage project!

This last example shows the basic shape without the card backing.  This "explosion card" is basically an ORIGAMI fold and there are many other fun folding ideas to explore.

Hey! Would you like to be sent a copy of the Special May/June 2018 Art Journal edition of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine? I have an extra copy in brand-spanking spiffy condition.  It's jammed with ideas to get you started with art journaling or to add some techniques to what you already do.  

First person to write me requesting it will get it mailed to them...postage free.  So shoot me a message @ nancy12345678@gmail.com with your mailing address (your address is through my secure and private email.  It will not be published.)

HEY!  If you click the photo to the left, you will be taken to the Cloth Paper Scissors magazine website page where you can sign-up with your email to receive a FREE Guide to Supplies for Mixed Media Art.  I don't think it's permissible for me  to download on my website.  So you will have to follow the link and sign-up and download it yourself.  But then you'll have your own copy!
