Coyote and Rabbit Collage for a Children’s Book



The most exciting thing for me is that I now have only 4 pages left to finish for this children's book and I will be ready to publish.  I've worked so long on it that I almost despaired that I would ever see the end.  Now it is so close I can see the light at the end.  Maybe I can start the new year with a newly published book.  Cross your fingers, friends.  Wish me luck.  I may be able to finish in this last month of the year.

Nopales Cactus Collage Part 2





I was worried halfway through this collage thinking it just wasn't working out but then it all started coming together.  I think the torn edges really added to the prickly look of the cactus.  Don't you think so?

Nopales Collage, Part 1





I love working these collages.  This time I chose a cactus to create the collage from.  This is just the first part of the process.  I'll publish part 2 next week.  More to come.

Introduction to Skillshare Collage Class





My first class on Skillshare was officially published 4 days ago but this is the introduction.  I'm hoping I can get lots of students by posting on social media.  We shall see if I can get a following.  This will take time, I'm sure.  Doesn't everything?

Idaho Farmhouse Paper Model House





This is one of the easier of the little paper house models.  I loved making it though and feel like it would make a great classroom project for little fingers to create.

Michigan Victorian Paper House Model





I loved this little house.  It was certainly complicated to put together but so fun and cute when it's done.  I think people will love it in my Etsy shop.

Make a little paper Missouri Farmhouse





These little houses, one for each of the 50 states will make a great craft book when I get them all done.  In the meantime I have several published for sale on my Etsy store page at Dancing Paintbrush Co.  This one is the making of the Missouri Farmhouse.
