We lost a great friend and wonderful artist this past week. My friend Cyndi was a very intuitive artist, self taught, prolific. She loved altering books, making artist trading cards, inchies, and making 3 dimensional pieces with vintage papers, inks, paper punches and such. Cyndi very bravely fought her cancer for 3 years. She will be remembered always.

Fancy name for fancy napkins. I recently was involved in a trade of napkins from people in swap group around the world. I sent a number of my own nappies from my collection and received these back. They are so beautiful. I use them in my art by ironing them onto cardstock with some plastic food wrap which melts with the iron and adheres the napkin to the card. The colors and textures are wonderful.
