studio 490 reveal day #4...


it's 2 for Friday...
that means I have 2 stamp sets to share today...

both sets focus on art journaling, but I have used them for mixed media/altered art too...

let's start with 
ART JOURNAL BASICS...

click to see the sets larger...

this set is all words & sayings...
exactly what I've been needing...


and the second set today is called...

ART ON HER MIND...

this set is LOADED with words & sayings too...
I've had a BLAST using these 2 sets...



I combined "CONTENTS" from 
ART ON HER MIND
and "THIS IS AN ART ADVENTURE" from 
ART JOURNAL BASICS  
for this intro journal page...

and those yummy FLOURISHES from
MY KIND OF ART...


here's a tiny peek at an art journal page...
be a star...



and speaking of STARS...
new from BLOSSOM BUCKET...

SMALL STAR KNOBS...
be still my heart!


I LOVED them so much that we also have...

LARGE STAR KNOBS...


you guessed it...
both sizes are PERFECT for flower centers...
and the small knob fits inside


and the knobs are great for art journals...

the art parts creative pages make excellent journal covers...
they already have the holes...
so you're ready for action...

 just add any pages...
I like to mix them up...

you can add grungeboard pages...
or fabric pages...
transparencies etc...

LOTS of fun possibilities...
and I like the fact that I can work on nice flat pages...

and an added bonus...
if the page turns out butt ugly...
you can trash it with no evidence!


I used the art parts large pages for this one...


the star knobs are the perfect fit for TAG TOPPERS too...



I had several questions about the price of the
  TAG TOPPERS...
there are 6 tag toppers in the package...
3 with the scalloped edge and 
3 with the zig/zag pinking shears edge...

 the package of 6 is reasonably priced @ $6.95...

and the best part...
they have been in production for weeks...
so they will be available right after CHA...
YIPPEE...
THANK YOU TED & STAFF!


that's it for the chit chat today...
I'm in full speed ahead CHA sample making mode...
and editing/proofing book #7...
and finishing the packaging...

I thought I'd leave you with a self portrait...

remember the old TV commercial?

this is your brain...
this is your brain on crack...


this is MY BRAIN a week before CHA...


YIKES!

enlarge the photos above & I *think* you may see quite a few peeks hidden on my art journal pages...


gotta run...
it's time to 
make art!
wendy
ps...have an awesome inky weekend...
I'll see you on MONDAY!
