#LOVESUMMERART -- Creative Tube Nation

Hey Everybody, 

BIG things happening on YouTube. The arts and crafts community is coming together to make it easier for you as content viewers to find more of the videos you love and discover new artists you may have never seen before. All with the help of a little ole #. This little symbol is very powerful when used in the right way in this online world of ours. All you need to do is go to YouTube and in the search box at the top of the page, enter #lovesummerart and hit enter, then watch the magic happen. More and more videos are being added between today and 20 July using this hashtag. Viewers will discover new artists, more techniques and styles, more mediums, more more more!

Cinnamon Cooney, theartsherpa on YouTube came up with this idea and now we have over 250 YouTube art content providers banning together to drive the success of #lovesummerart. This won't be the last # though. We are planning on possibly a new # each month. And remember, there is no expiration on a hashtag. Once its used and the videos are tagged with this # they will live forever on YouTube. So there's no rush, you can view at your leisure, but just know that this little symbol will be your friend going forward. We are trying to start an art revolution on YouTube. Won't you come along for the ride? 

Most of you probably know my YouTube Channel -- Patti Tolley Parrish. Please check out my contribution to #lovesummerart with the video I released today. Here are pics of my project -- I did a mixed media collage that I cut up for ATCs. I loved how this came out and hated to cut it up, but...

 (My personal favorite)

So stay tuned my friends. Much more arty goodness is in the works. 

I would greatly appreciate you sharing the #lovesummerart with your art friends so we can reach more viewers than ever before. 

Creative Tube Nation -- here we come! 

Happy Arting,

My Poor Blog ;o(

Hello Everyone, 

Just wanted to drop a quick post after months of inactivity. Hope you are all still out there! I'm sure you all know how life can get in the way of your fun sometimes. That's been the story of our life since my last post. Between Dave getting pneumonia, me having a bad fall and the resulting injuries I had and Mojo tearing his ACL and needing surgery, we've had a pretty crazy few months. I've said this before, but I'm going to try to make an effort to check in more often and try to keep everyone a little more up to date with what I'm up to. And again, the best place to follow me is on my art Faceboook page Inky Obsessions. You can also find me on Twitter @plynnt411. 

Some of you may have heard that I've also been working with Paula Phillips (also known as JournalArtista) in doing an art gathering of our faithful Ustream followers here in Maryland in July. Twenty three of us are coming together for a long weekend of some art play and fun. I'll post about this more after the event. 

I've been doing a lot on my gelli plate lately, mostly playing with my latest release of new stencil designs at iStencils. I've also made several altered cigar boxes I'm calling Keepsake boxes for wedding gifts and new baby gifts. I've done some collages, canvases, gelli printed shirts and gelli cards as well. And some Daddy Vans Beeswax on art tissue. I still like mixing it up and trying a little of this and that. Here are some pics of my more recent works: 

More to come and I'll try to do better with some regular rhythm to my posts going forward. 

Happy Arting,
