This project started with one concept in mind~ {she believed she could so she did} my motto!!! That was my starting point for my story~telling my ups and downs with my "art" and where I want to take it!!! My struggles, my successes and my dreams!!!  I used techniques I learned from Claudine Hellmuth and some of my own.  The sketchbook had close to a hundred pages so I machine sewed the pages together making the 30 pages.  I collaged old dictionary paper on the pages and then painted over them ( using CH paints) I hand painted Ivy on each page and bird houses.  The text is from G.C.D./Melody Ross~her words really spoke to me and I was able to use them to tell my story. I also added stamped images (Wendy Vecchi) to my pages.  The Sketchbook will reside in The Brooklyn Art Library in Brooklyn NY when it is done with the current tour.
