  1. How do you do it? REALLY? REALLY! HOW.DO.YOU.DO.IT? I looked at all 71 photos, one by one; BTW, they are amazing, and the excitement mounted until the very end with a spectacularly marvelous "reveal!" I am totally amazed at your creativity (every single project is well worth the "look-see!") Your attention to detail and the way you use/manipulate the "tools" always, always makes me look at things in a new and different way! Thanks for sharing your project and the inspiration for it. (Now, going back for a second look at the magic 😉)!

  2. You are amazing! Your creativity is contagious, especially when you share your bright ideas! 💡Thank you for always pushing the limits and WOWing, did I say you were amazing?!? Well you are. xxx

  3. Yes,one needs to take time to "study" each picture to see the amazing transformation of simple items into ONE AMAZING Project. I have questions, the little battery box hidden behind the #8 tag among the wood blocks? did you make a small grove for the wire to go behind the tag??? Inquiring minds must know these things...LOL. LOVE everything about this vignette box and think I have everything but the Archival Inks. and Hobby Lobby has those...I feel a shopping trip coming time!!!

  4. This is such an amazing mixed media piece. I just love every incredible detail. It is just a magical composition. Like everyone else, I am going to study this so I can learn from you. Thank you so much.
