I'm getting my art plans sorted out for 2013
and thought I'd share them here just in
case you wanted to take a look too.
I read about the first one on
Karen Isaacson's blog I am Rushmore
(have you dropped by there? You really
should, she cracks me up with her humour
and her artwork is BRILLIANT).
Anyway, I digress.
I've just signed up for
Musings on Realities
International Mixed Media
Postcard Swap Version 3.0.
I'm going to make 10 mixed media postcards
and send them to 10 people taking part worldwide.
I'll get 10 back in return :)
Click HERE for details but don't hang around
because you've got to sign up by
January 11th 2013 to take part
(postcards to be sent out by February 8th).
Next I followed up a comment by Susi,
another artist taking part in Fall Fearless and Fly,
who mentioned the
monthly art journey journal challenge.
Click the picture above for details.
As I've mentioned before I'm also signed up
for the year long creative challenge at
The Creative Underground.
Click HERE for details of all
the classes offered there.
Next, the mysterious Vagabond Machine.
This is not, as has been suggested, a sci-fi-esque
Tardis-like machine (thanks Lesley!), but merely
a cutting and embossing machine.
I got a 'bee in my bonnet' a couple of years ago
about this smart (for 'smart' read 'expensive') thing,
but actually rarely use it. I simply don't understand
how it works and so it kinda scares me.
However, once in a while
I drag it out and marvel at its magic.
Btw, my stickers fell off so mine doesn't look
as beautiful as Tim Holtz's :(
The dies are really rather expensive
(I liked this sewing one so much I bought it twice, doh!)
so I'm a little bit limited with how I can use it.
Anyway, I hope that has cleared up
'The Mystery of The Vagabond Machine'
(how very Agatha Christie!).
Back tomorrow with a
GORGEOUS Prayer Flag
made and sent to me by Jan Smith
for our Prayer Flag Swap
(I guess I'd better finish the one
I'm making for her then....?!).
