My Must Read List...

Hi Everyone!  :)

Check this out:


I actually decided to pick up a water soluable pencil and draw this afternoon.  I love how it turned out!  I was inspired by Leslie, the owner of the Art Journaling Ning.  Her blog is listed below.  This got me thinking.  As I don't have one of those favourite people lists on my blog, I'd post about the artists that inspire me daily.  This is an addition to the ladies in this post, as well as this one.

Bren has such amazing texture in her work, I'm inspired everytime she posts! 

I first saw Arlene's wonderfully distressed work on Youtube and instantly became a fan.  She is SUPER sweet and talented and I just LOVE her.  She makes the most amazing Mini Albums... ahhh....

I found Leslie through Youtube as well.  She has some great art journaling as well as book making tutorials.  She has recently been drawing a lot, which is what inspired the page above.

I just love Jonathan's (aka Artistic Biker ) Ustream show every Thursday night.  Check out his site for the time/place.  SO much fun to watch him create live as well as chat.

I've been a fan of Janet for awhile, found her work on Flickr.  She's updating her art room, and always has such great pages to share!

Last, but definately not least, Julie.  She is a scrapbooker, art journaler and quilt artist.  I just adore everyting she does.  I might of linked her before, but she's definately worth another shout out. 

These are just another few of the amazing artists out there that inspire me.  Check them out, show them some Love.  :)

Another completed page:


I've now uploaded a total of six technique videos!  I also did a fun Vlog that I will be doing every Wednesday, called Art Thoughts from the Couch.  :)  Check it out if you'd like to hear me ramble.  lol  :)  I made myself laugh in it, that's for sure.  I also uploaded a vid today about a WONDERFUL RAK that I got in the mail.  It just floors me that there are such kind people in the world.  I say OMG about 50 times, but it's a fun watch, especially if you like ephemera/collage type supplies.

Thanks so much for reading, supporting, commenting and all the well wishes.  I truly appreciate every one of them!!
Much LOVE xoxo

SO kewl on the pages. And I was SO excited for you while watching your RAK vid. Even as I was teary eyed I wanted to raise my hand and say Paula, I'll take 3 each of all those stamps stamped onto various papers! I mean I was on the edge of my chair jumping up and down! It's 1:45am here and just putting things away from working on the collage part 1 while watching Die Hard. Happy happies.

Bren said...

More vids, got to go check them out, I've had a lot of fun watching them and seeing how well you pull it off from the couch! Love the sketching you did, so dramatic, really stylizes the page in a whole new way!
And I am humbled to be included in your list of friends that inspire, ditto girl!
