It's been awhile so I thought I would bring you up to date on things. Two weeks ago we had a booth at the Albuquerque Rubber Stamp show. It fun to see all of you who stopped by. Thank you!
For those of you in the Denver area, we are going to be at a show March 28 & 29 at the Double Tree Tech Center in Greenwood Village. Come see us. You will find us listed by our stamp line name: STAMPAFE.
Hi, I know you are either all done or not yet started with your Christmas projects. I am working on an art book for a show that I will be in at the State Land Office in Santa Fe, NM. I have the cover almost completed, then the pages are next!
Here is a paper that I used for the covers: sprayed rice paper with Dylusion Ink Sprays. Flicked on Twinkling H2O water color paints and then added a bit of Perfect Pearl Mists.
Last week I had the honor of teaching a book making workshop to the art teachers who teach in the Santa Fe Public School system. What a hoot. There were 25 eager adults who had a blast, made a mess and sometimes sounded a bit like their students (in a good way now!)
We had fun, hands were good and inky at the end of the session and everyone had at least one book completed.
I have really been slacking off the blogging the last several months. I intend to be back at it. I have just completed a really fun on-line course called Smart Creative Style by Monica Lee over at Smart Creative Women (an excellent blog to follow). This course has opened up a whole new world to me and I want to share bits of what I have learned here and elsewhere.
We all have our creative pot holes that we fall into and they seem to turn into black holes allowing no creative light in. My goal here is to share what inspires me, what I am doing with my art and creativity, along with anything else that catches my eye in my wanderings. Hopefully, we all will stay out of those creative pot holes!
These are peppers I photographed at the Santa Fe, NM Farmer's Market a couple of weeks ago. The colors are awesome! Remember this when adding color to an object: it is not made up of just one color, use a range of colors. That will help you create depth and shape.
