I am a mixed media artist who enjoys creating all things with all things old rusty and worn. If it is not old, I like to try to age it and make it look as if it has been well loved. I love all kinds of paper arts, fabric collage, jewelry and painting wit a little Steampunk twist. It is my desire to make this blog is a place for my inner child to play, a place to dream and share. I hope this little glimpse of my world will inspire you in your art also!
