What Draws Us Near...

Ever Notice... we are drawn to what we can identify?
Weather it is something personal, or by an experience; the attraction is there.

Frida Kahlo * 
 I feel a real connection with this artist; 
for her WELL KNOWN EXPRESSIVE paintings and her pain. 

To share will you my artwork for the day...

I created these business card holders
from you guess it a...

So, whenever I am working with using Frida Kahlo as my subject, 
It is very personal to me.

Mini Journals *
Color and books.
I just can not... EVER seem to get enough of either one!!

There is nothing more satisfying than creating your very own.

I was so thrilled to find the time, to finish up on these wonderful mini journals.
If you are interested in creating some of your very own
(There is a link to the video on this post)
So tell me... what draws you near?

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I love Frida too. I admire her spirit and bravado. Your mini journals are quite impressive. I do love those things too. Have a lovely day.


  2. Frida is an inspiration for me, too. I loved the movie about her. And your Frida inspired business card holders are perfect. Also love those mini journals. When I saw them on Jennibelli's blog I thought they were so clever.

  3. Thank you Ladies, so glad you stopped by for a visit today! ((hugs)) :]

  4. Frida Kahlo really was a wonderful artist! Hugs,

  5. I love the idea of an altered tin for holding business cards...clever! And your stack of mini-books is a pleasure to behold! :-)

  6. I agree, Valerie... she holds a very special place in my heart. ((hugs))

  7. Yes, Andria... now YOU need to go out and purchase some mints! LOL
    So glad you enjoy the project, I have a feeling you might enjoy creating your very own, too. :}
    Thank you for all your kind words, always. ((hugs))

  8. Your Frida inspired tins are beautiful, April, and I love your mini journals - so colourful and artistic.
