Star Book Tutorial

Try a Star Book for your next journal - it has less pages and is a real show piece when finished. 
I have been making these Star Books for many years I never get tired of creating new ones. I have mounted them on old platters, tall pedestals and upturned bowls, finding the perfect finial is like going on a treasure hunt. Also the pages are removable for easy painting and journaling.

Recently off the bench

 I have been building inventory for the "Celebration of Creativity" art show March 6-9 in Beaverton OR.
"Up a Creek"
 This group is titled "Sail Away" I will also be teaching them at Small Studio in May and Art Unraveled in Aug.
"Fishing for Stars"
For some reason I used a magnifier the other day and really saw what I was doing...that was good and bad. I started to obsess on every little flaw. It's funny how you need to train yourself for a new tool even a magnifier. I will find the balance and know when to just let it be.

 I will have large Santos in the show as well and will be teaching them at all the retreats including Art and Soul  April in OR and Oct in VA.
"Dreams of Wings"
I have been so random on the blog I would like to invite you to follow me on Facebook it's under my name Tory Brokenshire. I post daily and enjoy the interaction with everyone - hope to see you there.
