Dear friends, I had fantastic fun making this book for the 21 secrets workshop. I made a spine using cloth tape in yellow and attached home made envelopes painted in yellow with pink stenciling on. I attached 5 envelopes using stitching and added pink beads on the spine of the book. i added the front covers I had made for another book cover. the butterfly on the front was from the florist and someone elses art work. I loved doing it all in yellow, pink and beige. I then painted some cards yellow and pink and put them in the envelopes. i wrote some personal things on the cards. I love the result lots of love from susan JOY

Dear friends, as part of the 21 workshops with 21 secrets we had to draw a line all over the page and then fill the spaces with shapes and fill some in and hatch some. here is my result. fun to do. I went through a big stage in my life doing doodling. it was nice to revisit it lots of love from susan JOY

Dear friends, this is another piece of art from my 21 secrets workshop using modeling paste. I applied the thick paste and printed over it with corregated cardboard making grooved patterns. I then smudged watercolor pencil over the paste and pressed in some colored buttons. a lot of fun lots of love from susan JOY
