Vive St. Anne



Oh it feels so good to work in the studio again! I've spent so much of my free time working on the house, I forgot how much I love to just in my studio at night and work away. Here is another shadowbox for the studio. I haven't put the title on it yet, but I will be calling it Vive St. Anne. I believe St Anne was the patron Saint of seamstresses in France. Have a happy and creative Tuesday.

Me too! I just started drawing again yesterday, after spending the summer working on so many house-related projects.

I am enjoying 'following' along with your blog, Karen! And I am happy for you, knowing that special place we escape to when we have time to create.

Enjoy your day!

I so like your shadow box.I have plans to do a small shadow box or just start making some of these collages you all make. I even went to Micheals craft store and picked up the oldish looking stamps for $1 each. So now where do I start..Oh they have dollar stamp pads..oldish ink..I love your style ..I am stopping by almost everyday now. Sally

Love it! I don't get much time during the week to work in my own 'studio', so when I do--I cherish the moments! Such fun! :)

WOW! Adorable! So charming that it just made me ~SMILE~ & light up like a Christmas tree.
Your seamstress shadow box is breathtaking! Just BEAUTIFUL! I believe that St. Anne would be delighted & honored!!
I am spending quite a bit of time L@@KING at each intriguing to scared detail. I ADORE the 3-D effects. A true Masterpiece!
My Grandmother was a seamstress who designed plus could create anything for my Mom just by looking at Vogue or any other fashion magazine. I never got to meet her so finding her old sewing supplies, buttons, spools of thread & Sunbonnet Sue Blocks was so fascinating to me as a little girl.
Just found your inspiring site today! You are so talented!
THANK YOU for sharing such happiness along with your divine talent! Happy Halloween from Tucson AZ!
