introducing...

the "artful shrines" art parts frame...

here's another brand new large base for projects...

this guy is 5 3/4 inches wide @ the base & 8 inches tall...

there are 8 pieces in the "artful shrines" package...
2 solid art parts bases...
2 cut out frames...
2 of the cutouts &...
2 extra trim strips for the base...
because it makes the base thicker & like a little shelf...

again, like the other art parts ...
use one piece or layer them...

I used just the cutout with an art parts bookplate for a project...
hey...
it doesn't HAVE to be a bookplate...
it's actually, just a frame......

one more thought...

I rounded the top of the shrine to resemble a snow globe...
a GIANT snow globe...
I have an idea...


how about some NEW stamps next?

this set is called...

"label it art"...

starting @ the far left is a "distressed numbers border"...
it's long...5 1/2 inches...
use it as a border & an easy way to highlight a date or significant number...
use the whole stamp...
or just a portion...

next...the 3 labels...
these are a perfect fit for tim's corked vials...
or...this art parts ink bottle, from a previous release...

when designing, my goal is to add to current products, to refresh them with even more options...

the #35927...I needed a filler for a project...
this fit the bill...
are the numbers significant? NOPE...

next is the "warning stamp"...
my lawyer thought I should notify friends...
LOL...
it's true...rubber stamping IS addicting...

"this side up"...works for lots of things...
like mail art & more...
it can be funny too...
you'll see soon...

the "love potion label" fits the art parts ink bottle & this bottle stamp & again...
tim's corked vials...
the label is good for lots of occasions...
wedding, anniversaries, Valentine's Day...

"serum of art..."
this is pretty much everything I say in classes...
read it & laugh...
but YOU KNOW...
it is all true!
you can use just a portion or a word from this stamp too...

I *think* you'll be seeing a new large bottle art part that is a perfect fit for "serum of art"...
coming soon to a blog near you...

and the last one is a "notice to the IRS..."
art supplies NEED to be tax deductible...
it's as simple as that!
AGREE?

I don't do politics, but maybe we should all write our congressmen & tell them our thoughts on art supplies...

and here's the stamp set...


I used the "artful shrine" and new stamps to make this...



I liked it so much that this is the cover art for book #5...
I haven't seen it yet...I'm patiently waiting...
I'll show you as soon as I get it...

ok...that's my thoughts...
what are yours?

as always...

make art!

Your Art Shrine is perfectly gorgeous and it is only fitting that it should "grace" the cover of your next book! So far I love all that I have seen and can't wait for more.

great idea for a cover - IRS should look out - you are being attacked by the "art" world!
