Well a couple of weeks back I made some pillows on Zazzle using my artwork. They came yesterday and I have to say I’m extremely happy with them!!

So you know how it goes, you post it on Facebook because that’s where all the fun is happening lol.

Several people messaged me and asked on my post if they were going to be available to purchase and to be honest I’d not even thought about doing that,

I just wanted some new pillows for home and thought it would be fun to have some arty ones,

but I listened and went ahead and opened up a shop and listed my pillows there. I hope you’ll check my  SHOP out:-)

Printmaking Unleashed

Traci Bautista’s new book, Printmaking Unleashed is FULL of unique ideas for printing and mark making.

I was excited to have a couple of hours to sit down and try some of the techniques in her book today. It really delivers as it definitely unleashed the printmaking beast in me!

She sent me a box full of awesome tools to try out and the thing that grabbed my attention right away is how many things you can use in printmaking that are just ordinary items. I’m getting ready to bind these backgrounds into a new journal so I can continue printing and journaling on top of them. Love having pages ready to develop in my journals, much more inspiring than blank pages!

The Red Carpet

I have received three blogging awards in the past couple of weeks. I want to give a huge thank you to those who passed the torch to me. I feel like I got to walk down the red carpet-lol! So, because time is limited in the summer, I have decided to feature one artist that shared an award at a time, passing the award to another artist. I will try to do this every few days, so check back to see some very inspiring artists and bring a cup of coffee with you!
