Let's Hear it for the Boys!

She absolutely loves the artwork of Brian Van Liew II and Mark Elepaño. They are talented, original & super creative. When she gets a chance to brainstorm about art with them she swears she can see the sparks of genius fly through the air. Honestly, these ornament are great but their 'serious' artwork is head spinningly spectacular. Check out their Ranger supply lists at the Ranger Blog! Kudos to the talented gentlemen at Ranger!

Don't Even Think About It!

Creating on demand. It can frighten the most creative souls. As a muse I can tell you the best way to deal with it... DON'T THINK! Turn off the chatter in your head. Just go for it! Follow your whims, wander in what ever way tickles your fancy. Experiment and trust in yourself!
Click on over and check out the Tim Holtz 12 Tags inspired goodness on Ranger's Blog.
Then, if you feel so inclined, put on some music, listen to an audio book or podcast to distract your brain and create!

Yay, Artistgirl got a Craft Gossip link to her Archival Video with Tim Holtz!

You're a Friend of Mine...

Her wonderful friends, Bonnie Egenton, Patti Behan & Artistgirl collaborated on a keepsake box. (She did very little, but it was so much fun for her to play with these creative women.) They made it for Father's Day but I think it it would be a great gift for anyone, on any day! Check out the Ranger Blog Post and the Instructions. (The title of this post is in memory of the late, great Clarence Clemons.)

In the Present Time...

She seems to have a lot of family & friends born in the month of May! She's been having a lot of fun making cards and wrapping paper. To Make Bonnie's paper, first she carved a solid letter B, and then carved another for the outlines. She stamped the solid B in various New Archival Ink colors. Then she stamped over the the colorful stampings with the ever faithful Jet Black Archival Ink. Another present wrapped up! Happy birthday to all the May babies out there!

Playing Around

She's starting to come out of her CHA overwork induced coma. The greatest prescription for Artistgirl is... Play Time! She thinks Wendy Vecchi's Clearly For Art Blackout is fascinating! Cut, die cut, punch. Paint, ink, sand, stamp, endless possibilities. Heat it, shape it, re-heat to flatten, re-heat re-shape! There's also Clearly for Art (Clear) and Clearly for Art Whiteout. This will keep Artistgirl happily playing for quite some time. Thanks Wendy!
