believe in art...

here we go...

NEW studio 490 stamp set #11...

"believe in art"...

I loaded up this sheet with so many images that we had to put some sideways on the storage sheet...
YIKES...it's a stamp overload!

the tour starts on the left...

another flea market find...
this "vintage ad" has so many elements/words that can be used alone...
you can bet I'll be using "plants & flowers" as a sign...
the mini clothes are fun to cut out & layer for dimension...
this works with the steampunk craze too...

"she opened her eyes"...
a fun saying for altered projects...

"who you are"...
simple but true...
I used this framed in the square art parts book plate for one of the projects in book #5...
this is a good stamp for using the individual words...
and it's fun to color in the open letters...

"she always felt different from the others"...
another fun saying for edgy art...
I *think* I'm liking the word edgy...
do you?

"she was certain she could, so she did"...
I wanted more sayings to use with faces, birds & butterflies...

it's also good for a graduation card...
promotion @ work etc...

"she believed she could be"...
another fun altered art saying...
like above, good for a graduation card...
promotion @ work etc...
or just a pep talk...

and finally..."normandy lace"...
another vintage find...
this is a large background/border...
good for stamping on a large area or use it as a background stamp for small art parts pieces...

here's "believe in art"...
the set with the sideways stamps...


moving on to #11 art parts package...

this is called "potpourri of parts"...
and it is LOADED with 20 art parts...

as you can see, there are flowers, a stem with leaves that can be used with these flowers or any flower...

the leaves @ the top are sized for these stamps, or they can be stamped with any background stamp for unlimited possibilities...

I LOVE the layered lamps...
I love them so much I HAD to do 2...
one smaller than the other...

same with the flower pots...IN LOVE...

and the flourishes...I thought we needed 2 sizes...

this is indeed...
a potpourri of parts!
oops... WAIT... the bottle...
it's 5 1/8th inches tall...

it was designed to fit the new SERUM OF ART label...

I like to ink it, then crackle it with tim's rock candy crackle paint...
and then to make a seal with Ranger's Memory Foil Tape...

here's a mini peek of a project I made for tim's Advantus booth...

.

the editing is DONE for book #5...YIPPEE...
(yuck job!)

I'll get the BOOK prototypes @ CHA...
can't wait to see it in person...

and I'll try my best to snag one to give away here...

the cover looks like this...
with the SERUM of ART label I mentioned above...



after CHA, the art adventure starts again...

first stop is a brand new store for me with a cute name...
it's Cafe Crop...

it's located in Crown Point, Indiana, which I understand is not too far from Chicago...

so I can drive! I LOVE that!

I hope to see some Illinois & Michigan friends there too...
since this seems to be a good central midwest location...

Here's a link to the classes...
just scroll down to see them...
hope you can join the inky fun on Friday evening August 12th & on Saturday August 13th...

after that, I head farther east to The Stamping Place...
it's in West Columbia South Carolina...
a GREAT store...
an awesome classroom...
& a fun staff!


tomorrow is FINALE FRIDAY...
the last of the new stamp sets...
and the last art part reveal...
kind of sad that's it's over...

I *think* Friday's frame is my most favorite art parts LARGE frame...

and that's why I saved it for last...

thanks for stopping by & leaving comments & sending emails...
I LOVE hearing your thoughts...

see you tomorrow...
for FINALE FRIDAY...

I'll show you a project
that will bring back memories & I HOPE...
make you laugh...

until then...

make art!

There isn't a stamp set or art part that I wouldn't want to have, so now it's a matter of trying to prioritize and get a wish list going. But honestly, I want them all!

It is impressive how vintage is getting popular specially those ads. Indian Pharmacy tries that kind of ads and it was a huge success.
