Story Telling ~ Paper Art Style

Thinking that having all my story pages, scrapbook layouts in one place would be a brilliant idea as a back up. All these layouts and more are in albums. It will take me years to upload them here at WP but as another gallery online its a perfect idea in my mind.

Along with hand crafted cards, collages,paper sculptures & carvings, home decor projects,multi=medium altered journals, and hand crafted mini albums, & story books are all  just part of what I see my Paper Art Gallery containing.

I also will be taking a bit of a risk. But a very tiny,  small one.

I hope that anyone stopping by enjoys something a bit different for my blog. Another side of me… if you will.

Hoping you all enjoy, or even better yet become inspired.

Rockaway Oregon ~ 2009





These page layouts are all of my family. From my BFF, my husband of going on 42 years, YES! I said 42 years, to our two daughter’s who are our finest works, and our two grandchildren. Our granddaughter is 19 yrs old a freshman at The university of Oregon, and our grandson who is 12 years old and is going to be an NBS player & star.

Also included is our beloved Rockaway Oregon’s spectacular sunsets and my best galpal here where I live.

I hope you enjoyed this small glimpse into my small world.

Thanks for visiting and taking the time. ~

  1. A few years ago I realized I had all these digital photos that never saw the light of day. And I had all those from-film-printed-snapshots stuck in envelopes in boxes. In the chest with the empty albums they were to go into. Then I discovered digital scrapbooking. After a couple of years of printing the pages for albums I discovered So now I have printed albums (by me or Blurb), with pictures and albums on the computer, on DVDs and on the external hard drives. I love sitting and thumbing through the albums!

    • I agree Carol, whats the point of having the images if you never see them. Bravo you for feeling compelled to do something about it.
      I have stayed away from digital scrapbooking for the most part only because I am a tactile person. I adore texture and being able to see & feel different layers of a good layout.Its like the difference between reading a book in your hands, turning the paper of its pages, to reading on a kindle or Nook. Not that there is anything wrong with liking the digital versions, just not my thing.

      That all being said I have never heard of It may change my mind. Thank you Carol, I’ll be checking them out for sure. Its an idea that I have toyed with, getting a photo album into book form. I do love that idea so much!

      Thank you Carol for the tip. I am really most grateful,

    • How you doing Julie/ cannot get you off my mind today, remembering back to the time of recovery in our home with our daughter after her brain surgery.
      All the changes, the moods.

      I was cleaning up comments I’d missed, how not sure but I did. Saw this one from you and although a few days ago I just wanted to say I was thinking of you.
