NEWS!!

So I have some exciting news to share. These designs are my latest work for Paper Artsy. They are in the process of becoming worksheets (how-to's) that will go to retailers to either teach to their customers as demos or classes. I created the designs and then wrote the instructions and made step by step images to go with them. Leandra, who owns Paper Artsy, is creating the finished product. I got a sneak peek at the work sheets and they look wonderful. It's exciting to think that something I designed will be travelling around the world wherever the Paper Artsy line is sold! There is even talk of these designs being taught at an upcoming convention!

I get so much pleasure out of working with all kinds of supplies to showcase a company's products and it makes me feel happy to feel challenged. When Leandra sent me the file to proof last week, I was beside myself with happiness-it was one of those moments when I thought "YES! I really am an artist!!" Someone once said "Do what you love." I definately love design work.
