Bloom More

This is a picture I took of the bougainvillea in my yard and using for this background. The picture with scripture I took on a walk in Palm Beach at Bethesda by the Sea garden entryway. I wrote this blog during Hurricane season of 2006. Gardening is a lot like art ~ full of whimsical color!

This is a picture I took of a page from a journal I was making for my grand girls this past month August 2020. I placed the picture on a painting I did with acrylics and tissue paper on a background of book pages I decoupaged together. The small embellishment was a technique called dentritic monoprinting on top of book pages covered in a plastic bag from the grocery store. I wrote this devotional in 2006 which is when my boss Jared Hawkins set up my blog site Hurricane Empress and asked me to begin blogging. I had no clue or desire to do this but it was now part of my job description!

A Surprise Package of Love

This was a handmade thank you card I made of paper and fabric for my niece in 2013 when I wrote this blog!

Don’t Lose Hope

This picture was taken September 2020 while camping in Kentucky. It was the first sign of fall to us. I placed this picture on a dendritic monoprinting technique that I painted just recently. I wrote this blog during Hurricane Season 2006.
