The Week Links: 9


Join me every Sunday when I will share some of my favorite links I discovered in the previous week.
Weeks 1 2,  3,  4,  5,  6,  7,  8...

And here is Week 9

Absolutely in love these 6 tiny books in a bundle created by Trace Willans from the blog SoewnEarth.

I am finding these vintage photo drawings --posted on I Need a Guide -- by Lauren King quite mesmerizing and compelling. 

Ever want to be part of an art retreat but couldn't because of location, lack of time, expense, or home/job responsibilities? The Reality Retreat, coming this August, from the Art is You crew is perfect for you.

Fascinated by a post on textileartist.org that highlights the variety of effects that 7 textile artists have achieved using traditional stitch techniques in unique and innovate ways. 

Miriam Schulman shares her list of the 10 Best Blue Paint Colors for Your Home. As a lover of all hues blue, I am taking inspiration for my artwork from the color swatches in this post.

Darcy Wilkinson from the PaperArtsy blog created an artwork that used gel medium in 15 different ways. This is like a mini-workshop in a post.

Hi seth!
Thanks so much for including me on your blog. I didn't even know that you had one, but now I will follow you. I took your 52 card journal class last fall and loved it. I am still using many of the techniques you taught and will be looking to see if I can take another class with you in the future. Happy that my blog was a source of inspiration for your artwork and look forward to seeing it. Best, Miriam

As always, great links. I'm already a Soewn Earth fan, but I really enjoyed the photo drawings, and embroidery. SO imaginative!

thanks for the textile artist resource
I have gotten away from my love of creating with a needle replacing it with the brush. Now I am inspired to do something combining both...a new adventure!
