I made these little pockets and filled them with fun things and candy for our Artsy Gals get together.We had a lot of fun with vicki's older sister Jan joining us,I think I got more talking then Art done,but it was great to see everybody again,Deb hasn't been able to come the last couple of get togethers,and we sure do miss Jessica,who is going to college classes.We made these fun spoolies at Vic's house,of course I didn't get them finished,so I played more when I got home!These are easy and fun,something even kids can make!

These are my next four pages.For those that asked it really isn't hard to do Zetti pages or a Journal. I start with An Acrylic or Watercolored page,Use golden's Acrylics and water down ,don't use some of the cheap paints They won't take sharpies !Make some colorful paper strips,you can use left overs,cut some from Magazines,paint some,Mix and match! Use some Black and white checks,stripes or others as they give great contrast,it is so important to add to your page!
Etsy has many artist selling collage sheets,some specializing in Zetti,or you can Photoshop and re-color old photos.You can cut faces ect. from Magazines,but make sure you alter them lots!I use my laser printer as there is no printing to show through the back like A magazine,I just scan and print out the pic.The fun of Zetti is putting large head on small bodies,or animal head with human Bodies or opposite.I usually lay out my pieces and decide how I like them before I glue them down!Lettering is the hardest thing for me because my hand writing sucks!lol!I challenge you all to try this if you never have!Post a link here if and when you do,I would love to see your pages!I have learned a lot from some really fantastic Zetti Artist on A private trade sight,and am still learning!Check out some of my favorite links!

Matt Dillion And Festus!
Boy I am so far behind with my blogging!Sorry it is just harder to come upstairs when it's colder up here and I was so sick!I was just getting over something( I think it was the Whooping cough,my Niece had it)Then right after Thanksgiving I got Hit with The H1N1! Boy was I miserable,I was hoping for a gun for Christmas so somebody could just shoot me!Congestion,chills and fever,body aches,I seemed to have it all!I am doing better but still have coughing spells!I just want my lungs better again. Ok with my Asthma that won't happen during the cold winter!
We managed to get some Chicken Noodle soup and Chile soup made for Christmas eve and take it in town to our Oldest daughter's place,feed everyone,have our Gift exchange,then rush home through the blowing snow. There was little and no visability at times,Our youngest daughter kadi and her Boyfriend followed us home and was Snowed in with us on Christmas Day. We played on our new Wii and Wii fit and played on the computers until our Broadband went down. We had Our Turkey for Supper,as we all slept in.Two days later They managed to get out,pick up his kids and go back home. I have only been out New Years Eve as we had a Gig. I am trying to avoid the cold air that's just starts my coughing again!I am working on journal pages so will post them soon!
I hope You all had A Wonderful Christmas And A Happy New Year!
