studio 490 reveal day #6...

it's funny how things work somedays...

today's post is LOADED with 
B words...

first off is BOOKS...

specifically my new book, #7...

I've had several ask if I will be doing a book signing again
@ CHA & the answer is YES!

I will be in the Stampers Anonymous booth...
(Art Gone Wild, if you're checking the exhibitor list)
on WEDNESDAY morning...

I'll be back with the exact time by Friday...
and I'll have the booth numbers for you too...

I had several emails about seeing the actual 
ART PARTS PACKAGES...

Matt is working on them today, 
so I hope to post all 10 packages on Friday or Saturday...

moving on to another new stamp set...

ART FOR YOU...

this set has 2 BUGS...
A BUTTERFLY...
and a giant
  honeycomb BACKGROUND...
that I'm using LOTS...
obviously good for backgrounds,
but REALLY cool to use on art journal pages...
just ink small sections...

and there are also 2 fun sayings...


there is also a coordinating
  ART PARTS package for this set...
and it has both BUGS & the BUTTERFLY...

the REALLY COOL thing about the bugs, 
is that they are a 2 piece art part...

this allows us to stamp an extra set of wings on 
the Clearly For Art & sandwich the wings
 between the pieces...
then glue ALL 3 PIECES together...

here's a look...




you can bet I'll be using these bugs for get well cards...

I thought they would work well for picnic layouts/photos too...

the worried about art set

and I CAN NOT WAIT to use one 
for a Christmas card for our ORKIN guy...
he'll flip!


the butterfly is fun...
color her with the distress markers
then jazz her up with some distress stickles
a game spinner and a mini gear...


or stamp her on a 
with archival ink for sure...
then color her with the markers...




I'm THRILLED with this 
ART PARTS BIRD...

it's BIG, as you see below...
over 8 inches long...

there are 2 birds in the package & 4 wings...


I altered big bird this way...
I WILL NEVER run out of tim's mini gears
they are a perfect fit with
they are BACK in stock...
lol...squeezed in another B WORD...

hello steam punk birdie...



and I altered it this way...

I have so many ideas brewing for the bird...

it's a fun project to use up your scraps...


on to more B WORDS...

BLOSSOM BUCKET...

how cute is this BIRD ?
ok...you're right...
he's actually a mini crow...
but I was going with the B WORD theme...
BEAR with me! lol...


and for sure every bird needs a
BIRD house...


and then we have a 
large BUTTERFLY...
this guy is fun
to use right from the package...

I've also added distress stickles to the individual sections...
they are raised, so it's simple...

I also altered the butterfly with a wash of metallic paints & LOVE the result...

and guess who wears this butterfly on her head...

coming soon to a blog near you...


I think this BIRD house is cute...



oh wait...
another B WORD...

BEE...

use him without altering...


or add some distress stickles to the wings...

again...
you see I'm hooked on embossing...

those scallops????

guess what...
it's 2 ART PARTS TAG TOPPERS...
you are gonna LOVE these tag toppers...
for constructing lots of fun stuff...


that's it for the B WORDS...

BUT I will BE BACK tomorrow with more new products...

 I leave you with this thought...
ALWAYS...


make art!
wendy
ps...you guys are the BEST...
especially those who leave comments...

inkypinkycraft said...

I love the bugs bees and butterflies...super yummy! Trace. X

Marijane said...

Boy, I really like all of today's items and the peeks. When I first saw the stamp set I thought, "Oh good, here's a set I won't have to get," as I am not a fan of bugs. By the end of your blog, after seeing all the cute peeks, and blossom bucket parts, I am now a fan! Next I have to go to your blog on my Ipad, as my netbook doesn't let me blow up the stamps to see what they say... bummer!

Theresa said...

OK...that honeycomb background is to DIE for!!! LOVE IT! And your art parts are too cool! I can't stand all this coolness!!! LOVE IT ALL.
