I would like to introduce you to 5 amazing women who create beautiful works of art. This week is not only a celebration of them, but also, a celebration of YOU because all of you inspire me in so many ways.
Chris is a Canadian artist whose diverse mixed media work exemplifies the masterful use of so many different techniques.
Never afraid to try new things, Chris is not only on the design team at Dezinaworld, but her blog is chock-full of the amazing pieces she produces.
Lovey of Fabric Photo Memories creates exquisite fabric designs and her work has been included in numerous magazines. The time and detail that goes into her creations makes each a one-of-a-kind treasure. Not only does she use gorgeous fabric, but also, her gems make a girl’s heart flutter! You’ll have to go and visit to see what I’m talking about.
The other day, I was standing in Hobby Lobby and decided to go see if I had friends who were featured in the magazine section. One major magazine caught my eye, I opened it up--and there was Lovey’s work! I was so excited. I said to my husband, “That’s Lovey--that’s my dear friend! I’m so excited she is in this!” Okay...so now you know I’m like a little kid and get very thrilled for my friends. (That might also give you a clue as to why I decided to create this online magazine to feature people I feel have such incredible talent.)
Suzy is a fabric artist from Australia whose creations are splendorous. I came upon her blog one day and all I could think was “Oh my gosh--I wish I could come over and watch her create!” She has one of those blogs that makes me “oooh” and “awe” as I scroll from one page to the next--the fabric, the art, the colors, the textures--it is all sublime and her talent is astounding.
June of Junibear’s Jottings is the quintessential digital artist. Her work takes my breath away and I know that if you visit her blog you will feel the same way. The layers and depth of her pieces make them stand out as the true treasures they are. June is not only an artist, but is also part of the design team of Dezinaworld.
As many of you know, I design for Shabby Cottage Studio. I created this jar which would be perfect to put Valentine candies in or to display in your home.
It was created with images from Shabby Cottage Studio...I hope you’ll take a look at their amazing digital images....With just one sheet, you will have lots of projects you can create! I know that many of you use the gorgeous images from there and believe me, you won't want to miss the special Valentine goodies that are in store!!
Here is a little tag made with images “from the cottage” that I just fell in love with! I love all that shabby goodness.
