It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Valentine's - WOYWW #348

Hi Friends,

I wanted to join in with the deskers today and show the fun mess I made on my desk with Tattered Angels paints and Glimmer Mist. I f you have not yet heard of desking...there is an opportunity to hop around the world each Wednesday getting a peek into the creative process of many fun people! Check it out over at Stamping Ground :)




So as you can see I am making some quick Valentine cards while trying out my collection of new Tattered Angel brands mists and paints with some stencils and layering.  Wow are my fingers purpley pink stained :)

In my last post I talked about the popularity of collaborations I have been exposed to since I started joining in with the creative community on Youtube. So in that spirit I would like to share today one fun collaboration I hosted recently. The result of the collaboration is pretty darn awesome! What we did is I found a 9 piece children's puzzle, There were 8 people participating and so I sent our a piece of the puzzle to each person and kept 2 back to do myself. There were no color/theme/style rules. Just decorate the piece in a way that suits you or represents your personality. Once I received all the pieces back I was so amazed at each individual piece of art. I painted the frame black and then inserted all the pieces back in. It really turned out SO COOL. I drew names out of a bowl for the person who wins the puzzle to hang in their studio. Congratulations Lizzie Beth :)

  11. The puzzle is so much fun! I have a few that I have done (as you did yours) over the years! I have a chocolate themed one, and a medieval themed one! It is amazing how well they come together considering each one is by a different artist! Thanks for letting me remember some good times! Lindart #54

  12. Oh I move me some spray fun! Your collage heart is lovely. Isn't the collaborative idea such a good one, there are so many gifted people out there. I love that each piece is so different. They scare me a lot, when the 'thing' arrives..I get the vapours about what I should do to be good enough!

    1. Thanks for visiting Julia :) I know what you mean about those darn vapours! I think we all get a bit scared when faced with the actual project that seemed so easy as just an idea..lol

  20. More pretty hearts and Valentines! It's only the 6th of February. You will be ready for Valentine's Day, for sure. The Puzzle turned out G-R-E-A-T! It's fun to see it assembled. I'm looking forward to seeing a 'Theme' Puzzle, now. :)

    1. Thank you Daisy :) I will have to see if anyone wants to do the puzzle again. I need to find a kids puzzle that is made of chipboard type paper instead of the pressed wood stuff. Perhaps in a few months...tons of stuff I should work on now!
