Natural Lighting

Yesterday, the natural light that shone through my window woke me and inspired me to pick up my camera to capture it's beauty.
I didn't add any lighting...no flash...
Just God's Natural Light...
What do you think?
Beautiful isn't it?

Where Bloggers Create 2011

Welcome Bloggers to Where I Create!
I'm so glad you're here!!
My name is Lovey.
My creative space is the perfect place for me.
~About My Art~
I create Fabric Photo Collages using images of
African American Women from the
~early 1700's- early 1900's~
I love everything vintage...
folding cameras, photos, jewelry, fabric, lace and trims...
I love it all!
My "girls" have been featured in several magazines,
including Sew Somerset and
Cloth Paper Scissors; Studios.
I have also had the wonderful opportunity to be featured on Crescendoh.com as well many other websites and blogs.
~Why I Blog and Create~
I have met the most wonderful friends through blogging
and have truly been inspired by each one of them in ways
that have helped shape me into the artist that I am today.
I dedicate my blog and art to my MOM...
MOM, I Miss and Love you!
~On to Glory~

~My Book~
I have recently written a Beautiful
Craft Book...
Entitled
Fabric Photo Memories by Lovey
Please follow link below for information about purchasing a copy for your very own!

And Now for...
 MY CREATIVE SPACE!
Here it is!
I love working at my desk.  
Here I can surf the web, blog and work on all my images digitally before collaging them.
As you can see, I have lace and fabric around me at all times...
Ohhh the allure of it all.
With a swivel of my chair, I am able to work at my sewing station.
Here I have space to spread my images out and create my collages.
Oh how I Lovvvveee these textured fabrics!
And lace...takes me to a "whole-nother" level of Happy!
My SMDiva!
(Sewing Machine Diva)
These lace pieces are actually curtains.
The curtains were purchased at a local Thrift Store.
I enjoy finding, washing, coffee staining and cutting these lace curtains for use in all my collages.
Once I was turned on to Bird's Nest...it was "On!"
Under my desk, I keep my Cricut Cartridges in bins.
Bling!
Enough Said!
Love my Vintage Porcelain Dolls!
This side of my studio offers an abundance of "Eye Candy".  I keep my bins stocked with Lace, Trims, Fabric Scraps and Old Antique (Broken) Jewelry.
Can never have too much lace, right?
I purchased decorated boxes that have a magnetic clasp on the front to house some of my lace. 
 In order to get to the lace without having to take everything down off the boxes,
I used my x-acto knife to cut the front; making a door for easy access to the lace.
When I'm done, I can close the flap and the magnetic clasp closes back up.
"Wall of Inspiration"
Once I framed my fabric photo collages in shadow boxes, I could not resist hanging them up together in a nice cluster for additional inspiration.
~So~
As you can see, I only have half of the room to work with.  
Not very large, but it is very cozy for me.  
I can get a lot done in my "little corner of the world..."
~Now~
Beauty for me is...
"My Vintage Girls Encased in Fabric..."
~And~
"Seen..."
"No Longer a Forgotten Face..."
Gotta love that!
Published and on the Newsstand at Borders and Barnes and Noble?
Oh that was a wonderful accomplishment for me!
 ~My Book~
Fabric Photo Memories by Lovey is available for purchase here...
Please check it out.
A beautiful book full of tips and tutorials...
Truly unique and completely made from the Heart!
Oh and Yes...
I gave up my PC's for a MAC...
I'm a MAC girl...all the way!
"Once you go MAC...You never..."
Ahh shucks...
You know the rest!
Thanks again for your visit!
 Please feel free to leave me a comment and/or

Smiles!
