Hello, my artsy friends, I hope you are enjoying a wonderful 4th of July weekend! You know my motto, Sundays were meant for relaxing, so sit back, relax, and let those creative juices flow.
Are you new to the Zentangle technique? I love how Summer incorporated Zentangle into this adorable layout. I would encourage everyone to try this type of doodling; it’s a real stress reliever and a great way to kick start your creativity.
Meditative drawing is easier than it looks. The process of creating patterned drawings by combining repetitive marks, circles, lines, and forms to create small pieces of art is a great way to clear your mind and let yourself become more focused and relaxed. I hope you’ve been inspired to give Zentangle a try. You’re gonna love it!
Are you familiar with the bleeding art tissue technique? Eileen used this fun technique to create the background on this gorgeous canvas. Whether you are scrapbooking, making one of your beautiful cards, or starting a mixed media project, you’re going to love the artsy backgrounds you can create with this technique.
Now that I’ve sparked your interest, if you’d like more info on this unique way to add vibrant color to your next project, check out Eileen’s video on Youtube. I hope you give it a try; it’s a lot of fun and you will love the end result.
It’s the sentiment on this beautiful card that spoke to me and I love how Amy heat embossed the sentiment in gold on vellum. What an elegant look!
This very warm and uplifting card is sure to make anyone’s heart sing. For more details, be sure to visit Amy’s blog Pickled Paper Designs; you’re sure to leave inspired to start that next project.
Audrey had me at “No Sew.” I consider myself a pretty hard core crafter, but sewing isn’t #1 on my list; I mostly dabble in my paper crafting 😉 . When I discovered these adorable sachets on Audrey Pettit’s blog I knew you’d be inspired to make a few. Wouldn’t they make a sweet pishky to have on hand when you need a little gift? They are so cute and they smell amazing.
I’d like to send out a big hug to Audrey for sharing these adorable sachets with us. Don’t forget to stop by her blog anytime you need a burst of inspiration; she really is an amazing designer. You can also go onto the Therm O Web site where Audrey has prepared step-by-step instructions with lots of photos. Have fun!
