Artistic Outpost- New Release

The wait is finally over!!! Paris Exposition and Birds of a Feather are here.

Paris Exposition: Inspired by the Paris Exposition of 1889, for which the famed Eiffel Tower was built, this stamp collection features bold vintage style images including a French version of "What's up?". In French, we translated it to be "Quoi de nuef?" There are several collage elements to this collection which will provide you the flexibility to add multiple layers to your creations.


Birds of a Feather: Edwardian romanticism inspires this collection of bird images. Included is a perfect ATC background of German text. You will also love the engraving realism to the main bird images. This collection is timeless and season less, though we did give you a special sentiment for your springtime projects.

Use coupon code Spring2010 at checkout to receive 20% off each of these two new collections purchased together or individually. Note - coupon expires January 26th.

Both collections are available unmounted or pre-cut and mounted on EZMount cling foam. You can find them at Artistic Outpost

Stepping Ouside Your Comfort Zone Make Time to Play

I titled this for two reasons. The first being this is my First Cuff bracelet and while it might not suit everyone its something I had to try. I started this piece about 6 months ago not really knowing where it was headed. I had picked up a bag of vintage brass door plates at a Antique store and began playing around with different ideas I added a watch face with a doll image and a miniature doll ,found this brass plate from some jeans I bought and stamped the text into a scrap of brass. set it on my shelf and there it sat for 6 months. I picked it up last week and asked my DH if he could bend it to fit around a wrist. That was it. It would become a cuff bracelet. I added fabric that I machine and hand stitched. A Vintage lace Collar and button. Finished off with a vintage brass swivel clasp and chain.


So now comes the second part of Stepping Outside my Comfort zone. I have been considering opening up an Etsy store to sell my art that is currently bursting at the seams in my studio. I know that times are tight right now but would Love some feedback from you all. If I'm crazy tell me so!! I won't be offended. Think its a Good idea I'd love to hear that too, If you have an Etsy store yourself I would love to hear what to and Not to do. I would appreciate any feedback you can give me. For those of you who respond I'll drop your name in a hat for a Gift certificate to the new store (if I open one) or just a gift from me if I don't!
In any case Make Time to Play!!!!
