Exhibition 36...

Blog36Book

I am excited to show off the cover of the upcoming release by Susan Tuttle, a creative collaborative called Exhibition 36: A Gallery of Mixed-Media Inspiration.  The book will hit Amazon's warehouse on November 17, 2008, and will be in bookstores shortly after in the US, UK, Europe, Canada, and Australia.  It is available now for pre-order at Amazon.

Book Description:

"Within the pages of Exhibition 36, readers will enter a virtual art exhibit featuring thirty-six mixed-media artists whose collage, digital, assemblage, altered and repurposed art adorn the walls and pedestals of this unique gallery. The artists are "present" throughout the exhibit, answering questions, sharing their thoughts, talking about their work and offering instruction. The tour is structured to provide insight into the creative process of the artists whose work is on display and the reader will be delighted with the plethora of inspiration, articles, techniques and general visual candy. As a final bonus, many artists featured in the book have contributed imagery as a gift to readers for attending the exhibit to reuse in their own creations.

Possesses great crossover appeal for mixed-media artists of nearly every discipline, including jewelry makers, collage artists and more.

Readers will enter a "virtual tour" featuring art from a variety of contributing artists, including well-known crafters such as Claudine Hellmuth (Collage Discovery Workshop) and Suzanne Simanaitis (Kaleidoscope).

Includes bonus collage imagery sheets for readers to use in their own art." ~Amazon.com

Forgot to mention it, but my work is in this book, too!

Back to School...

Btsnew 
Well, I did it!  I made the decision to go back to college and I am starting with a Graphic Design class this summer.  I plan to take one class each semester in visual arts.  I even have a student ID, which gets me discounts! How cool is that!  I'm very excited as I have been wanting to do this for a very long time!!!  What one thing would you like to do if you could?  What's holding you back?

Have a  blessed day!

New Stamps...

I love it when things are ahead of schedule!  My new rubber stamp designs at Paperbag Studios are now available.  These were designed with those who journal and scrapbook in mind, but will work well in traditional rubber stamping designs!

PS CS2 ~ Quick Layers with Texture...

I found these cool textures on Flickr and tried layering them with some photos in Photoshop.  The results are pretty cool when you try all the different options.  I pulled together a quick video* tutorial demo showing how I used them.  The source of the free textures is linked below.  Enjoy!

Tagged...

I've  been tagged by dear Jeanette to share six non-important things/habits/quirk about myself.  This is really funny to me as my husband would say that I have dozens of things I could share!  LOL!!

Okay, here goes:

1. I eat cooked oatmeal with flax seed and wheat germ every morning for breakfast.  That's not the weird part, though.  I like it thick and after I put it in the bowl, I spread it out up the sides of the bowl so it can cool off.  I eat all the oatmeal off the rim first and work down to the bottom, eating in a circle.  Weird, eh?

2. I am addicted to lip balm, Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm to be exact.  I sleep with one under my pillow at night so it is in easy reach!

3. The pillows on my couch have a zippered end.  This is the end that HAS to be down on the couch.  If they aren't placed this way, it drives me nuts!  Can you say O.C.D.?

4. I sleep with three fans; one ceiling fan, a box fan on the floor (mostly for noise) and a small turbo fan that I also travel with. 

5. I don't like wearing shoes.  And when I do, I don't like shoes with a closed toe and I prefer to wear slides, or shoes with no back to them.  I pretty much live in my Reef Flip Flops and since I live in Florida I get to wear them just about year round.  Now, don't get me wrong!  I do wear shoes that fit the outfit.  I will wear the right shoe, but if I have an option it is going to be my flops!

6. I shave my legs everyday and sometimes twice. 

Rules

1.link to the person that tagged you - 2. post the rules on your blog - 3. share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself - 4. tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs - 5. let each person know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their site.
