answers and angels...

The Q & A continues...

1. Love the Perfectly Practical Pocket Journel. Will that be an Orlando class???

Yes it is...

2. Whose booth are you demoing in at the Columbus show???

Stampers Anonymous!

3. love the idea of the perfectly practical pocket journal (say that 10 times fast). OK I have to ask what color did you the background stamping? I share your love for that bundled sage- gotta have it!

That would be my new favorite combo...
tumbled glass, bundled sage and brushed corduroy.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the 3 used together!

4. I see in your ink drawer that you have the adirondack inks too. I have them, but since the distress i forgot them.
Do you have any ideas to share using the dye inks?

I DO! That's a post for another day! Stay tuned.
I'll figure something out!

5. I was sure I knew ALL your stamps. What sheet is the text butterfly on? You used it on the class photo. I'm on the hunt.. I must have it.

Well...if you have my large butterfly stamp...
you already do.

This is the large butterfly stamped on grungepaper & the back is stamped with the new register stamp...

It's my current most reached for favorite background.
I used the butterfly back instead of the polka dot front...
to change up the look.

6. I LOVE the hanging & the book...can you do those in the store or only at conventions?

Hmmm...since I got this question 4 times yesterday, I'm thinking...
I guess we could just make it a 4 hour store class & do both. I aim to please!

7. THANK YOU for the larger roses stamps. They are so wonderful and are a great addition. I like the 3 sizes together.

Thanks! I REALLY like them too. I was surprised @ how much easier they are to make being large. I REALLY wanted to make a REALLY mini rose, but it's a REALLY a pain... especially that inside piece...
I said bad words...
but you just never know...

Ok...
that was the answers part of the title...
as for the angels...

there's only one coming...
but ANGEL sounded stupid in the title...

so I used ANGELS instead...

hey...it's my blog...
so I make the rules!

ANYWAY...I had so much fun making the art chick into an angel, I had to re-do her again in different colors...

the background is butterscotch and denim pigment inks...
with a splash of sunflower sparkle Perfect Pearls.

The plaid background was stamped with olive archival...
The chick is adorned with barn door flowers and a stormy sky butterfly.

Rick commented that he liked the "chink-a-do-ola" hanging from her hat.

This is aka a Maya Road chandelier trinket bead, dear hubby!



This is the back of the grungepaper...
the textured canvas side stamped with the register stamp.

I had an ahhh ha moment & realized that the small scroll is a perfect fit for the large butterfly.
I like it...

it wasn't planned...
it's...
just FATE!




Ok...got kits to make...
LOTS of kits...


I'll get them ready so if you're in a class of mine...

you will be able to...
(get this...!)
make art!

Wendy -

Love what you've done to Art Chick! Gotta love a fashionable angel - LOL! And I spy what I think is becoming one of my favorite stamps, the scallops on the tag.

Have fun making kits!

Donna said...

I love that you have Q & A time!

I love that you tell us what inks are what and how to blend them to get which colors.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments you left for my story yesterday! It was very nice.

Dawn said...

Wendy, love the q & a- I have to tell you this- I am a curriculum specialist at an elementary school and yesterday was Dream Big day- where we got to dress like what we want to be when we grow up- well i wore painted on jeans and a shirt and an apron with "Make Art" on the front- I also had a tag that said Mrs. McKinney- Artist- So I guess you could say that I dressed up like you yesterday!
Hugs from the beach!
