GROUP Ustreams -- Say What???

Hi All, 

I've been a very busy girl. I should be shunned from the blog world! But I do have some news and I'll include a few pics of some of my latest projects for now. 

Mark your calendars for something new with my Ustream Channel! 

Saturday 13 September @ 11AM EDT will be my first GROUP stream! My good friends and artists Ellen Smith Vargo and Donna Walsh will be joining me LIVE. We will be co-creating and taking turns doing demos, answering your questions, and sharing our favorite products and resources. But beware -- our usual banter will be going on in the background, so who knows what will happen! If this is well received, we plan to make this a recurring event. We also have a few more art friends that we may rope into playing along with us once we work out the kinks.

If you are signed up to follow my Ustream channel, you'll have already received a notice of the event via email. If you are not yet signed up and would like to join in the fun, click this link and 'follow' me.

Stay tuned -- lots more fun to come!!!

Here are some pics of some of my latest projects. So sorry but I'll have to post more details about the projects at another time, but if you have a specific question about anything, please leave a note and I'll be sure to get back to you asap. 

My newest obsession -- Polymer Clay Tiles -- thanks to Laurie Mika:

I've also been making some collages and cutting them into ATC's to send along with orders from my Etsy shop

This is a canvas I made for my Oncologist's office after taking Jodi Ohl's Angels class at Create in New Jersey: 

And a commissioned piece for one of Dave's golf buddies -- this is his 5th canvas I've made for him: 

Happy Arting!

Lindy's Stamp Gang July Color Challenge -- OOPS!!!

Hey Peeps, 

I thought I'd try something different and jump into Lindy's Stamp Gang's Challenge this month. I've done a couple special projects last month and used quite a bit of Lindy's products in them. Check out their blog for further details. Here are their colors for July. 


Well, after rereading the instructions, I have to use the specific colors above, not just similar ones. Oh well. Maybe another time, but since I wanted to share the projects I did, I'll keep going and link up their products anyway since I really love them. 

You may have heard me speak of two weddings this past June. My niece Chelsea and her husband Pete got married on the 21st at a gorgeous church with a really fun reception that followed at the Baltimore Yacht Club. The following weekend, my good friend Kacie married her fiancee Rick in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the Poconos. I made similar projects for each couple using their wedding colors. Chelsea's colors were turquoise and pale yellow. Kacie's colors were grey and yellow. 

This is Chelsea and Pete...I used several Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays in the background of this project -- Delphinium Turquoise, Frozen Jack Frost, Tibetan Poppy Teal, Shabby Turbine Teal, Tainted Love Teal, Tiffany Lou Blue, Time Travel Teal, and California Poppy Gold

And for Kacie and Rick's canvas, I used -- Starburst Colors were California Poppy Gold, Frozen Jack Frost, Creme Brûlée Cream, Gag Me With A Spoon Gray, plus a Flat Fabio called Pineapple Paradise

Maybe I'll get this right in August! LOL 

Happy Arting!
