Happy Easter! - Joyeuses Pâques!


Happy Easter to all of you!

Here in the south of France it is cold and quite rainy... 
On a cultural note... here the Easter Eggs are not delivered by the Easter Bunny... on Easter Sunday, the bells come flying from Rome (don't ask me why the bells and why from Rome... I am not French) and drop the eggs and nowdays: bunnies, hens, turtles, bells and cows.

Happy Valentine's Day 2013!!!!!

In Mexico it is called Dia del Amor y la Amistad (the day of Love and Friendship), in the States it is called Valentine's day and in France it is called La Saint Valentin.

No matter where you are, I hope it will be a fun day filled with hugs, kisses and much love.
My dream is to spend it in Paris with a special someone in 2014!

Blue/green/purple creativity exchange!



I recently created a card for a Swap-bot exchange. My partner liked textures, printed matter and owls among other things. This is what I created for Jennifer in Vancouver, Canada.




This is the card I received from Yvonne in Texas, USA. I love the textures and the words she choose. I think definitively it is one of my favorite cards ever!!!!

Art Journal - page swap - Happy 2013!!!!

To start the year on my best foot, I have joined a page swap in swap-bot. The idea is two illustrate two pages of a possible art journal for a partner. In turn, I will get pages created for me.

The questions asked were:
1). What do you think would happen in your life in 2013?
2). What did you enjoy doing the most in december 2012?


So, here are my entries. The front side is a mixture of watercolor, ink and newsprint. The back side has either quotes (referring to Paris) or a definition from Wikipedia (concerning SCD).


I was a bit slow to start... but once I got going, it because quite easy thing to create and the words just flowed.
