1. I love these linen and chalked stones wrapped by Alice Fox.


2. Geoffrey Gorman has a new website and looking at it reminds me of how stunning and powerful his work is.



3. Every Tuesday for the past year, Marjie Kemper has shared tutorials from other artists. In her farewell post for this project, she includes the link to all the tutorials.


4. Mesmerizing video for a new collection coming from Ikea (yes...Ikea).



5. Would love to be able to see Metamorphosis: The Art of the Altered Book at the Fuller Craft Museum in  Brockton, MA.


6. The Art of Found Objects: Interviews with Texas Artists (Joe and Betty Moore Texas Art Series), written by Robert Craig Bunch and releasing in October, looks like it could be a very fascinating read.

Die Cutting: The Basics

Ever since I started to design dies for Spellbinders, I have had a good number of artists ask me questions about the process. Many have never used a die cutting machine. So I created a short video that reviews the basics of die cutting and shows you some examples of how die cuts can be integrated into your art.

Your Got This

I absolutely love how different artists use the same tools in such unique ways. As I always say, you cannot help but put the artist that you are onto your canvas.

I have seen a number of online posts sharing artwork made using my You Got This stencil from StencilGirl Products


I am so in love with what these artists created, I had to share it with you!

(Mary also used part of my Make it Count stencil)

(Maria also used my Urban Circle, Techno Circle and Urban Star stencils)

(Anne also used my Make it Count stencil)
