Steampunk Journal workshop-Debbie West

Altered Art Day to Create: Hand made book & Steampunk

Pam Yee was back in town w/DH...and played up a storm! She led a repousse' chunky book using stamps & aluminum to decorate rounded corner 4x4 masonite front & back cover. Several weeks later, she and Debbie West, treated us to an all day workshop at Rubber Stamp Plantation. They were full up this year for the 2 book projects that everyone walked away with.

Pam led a sewn book using a single parent sheet of watercolor paper that she pre colored & split for sharing.

Debbie's project was a steampunk journal that made me drool for my father's work bench!

Waves up at Ho'okipa, Maui

Surf amazing at Ho'okipa, Maui. One of my favorite places to park myself. surfers, kite boarders, windsurfers... used to harvest ogo for my garden when I lived in Haiku. If you're in the area, be sure to have dinner at Max World Bistro. Truly a gem and well worth the adventure finding it!
