The Edit: December 2021

Welcome to The Edit

Dropping on the blog on the 1st of every month, The Edit will bring to you all my online finds, links, inspiration, thoughts, and favorites since the last Edit. Plus, there will be a review of and links to my recent demos and online events -- just in case you might have missed one. And a whole lot more. 

For those of you who have been around the block with me for some time, think of this as The Sunday Papers. On steroids. Every so often I might hop on my soapbox and share something a bit more serious and topical. But mostly, The Edit is here to provide a moment of escape and a bucket load of inspiration. Let me know what you think in the comments.

New: WOW Embossing Powder

Earlier this week I shared with you my newly released, hot off the stamp press, stamp sets from PaperArtsy. New release week continues today with my new release with WOW. Thrilled to be bringing you Alchemy and Just Desserts - two embossing powder trios for a total of six new colors. These are shipping now from my online shop.

 

 

ALCHEMY

Alchemy is a set of three embossing powders: Dirti Verdi, Tarnished Teal and Silver Smudge. These are opaque metallics with a difference. Grungy and gritty, each of these colors are a blend of many individual crystals, creating a unique and multi-dimensional surface - ever so subtly different with each use. As you look close you will see bits of black sprinkled in the powder, adding depth, shadow and a bit of darkness. The surface feels gritty when you run your finger across the melted powders. The combination of the semi-matte surface and glints of shiny powders add to the uniqueness of these blends. 

 

JUST DESSERTS

Just Desserts is a set of three embossing powders: French Toast, Burnt Toffee, and Mud Pie. Like any good dessert, you cannot get enough of them. These are semi-tranlucent powders with a difference. Each powder is a multi-blend of many individual crystals, creating a dynamic and varied color - subtly different with every pour. The surface is slightly more matte than a traditional EP and gritty to the touch. Tiny glints of light catch the eye as it moves across the surface. The combination of the semi-matte surface and bits of shiny powders add to the uniqueness of these blends. The range of colors makes this trio the perfect addition to any project with a vintage feel. 

When combined with my previous release, I now have a collection of 12 WOW embossing powders - all of which play well together and are now available as a complete set.

NEW: PaperArtsy Stamps

 

So excited for New Release Week which begins...now. First up are three new stamp sets from PaperArtsy, which brings my collection with them up to 27 sets! These are hot off the stamp press and available now for purchase from the shelves of my online shop. And while you are there, you might have a look at the 14 pieces of art using the new stamps which are also available.

Fan (or not) of all those reality shows that focus on creative challenges? Read this article that explores the phenomenon.

 

This may not be happening until Spring 2022, but I already over-the-moon excited. Blend the words Jean-Michel Basquiat and never-before-seen and I am hooked!

 

And speaking of Basquiat, here is a fascinating video that explores the overlap in style between Jean-Michel and Jean Dubuffet.

 

Fascinating read from the New York Times Style Magazine

 

Sharmon Davidson has put together a 3-part series (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) on the history of collage and has highlighted a number of artists that are sure to be new to you.

Make Your Mark: FB Live Workshop

Registration is now open for my newest FB Live workshop

Make Your Mark

Registration is now open for my newest Facebook Live workshop: Make Your Mark. The class is all about...wait for it...mark making! It is being held on Tuesday October 12 from 1-4pm Eastern. Cost for the 3-hour workshop is $40. It takes place in a private Facebook group and you will have access to the group and the video forever to watch anytime and as often as you like. My guess is that most people will already have all the supplies that are needed. Read the full description, see the supply list and reguster now right here. And please note that regustration closes when the class is filled or October 10 - whichever comes first.
