New art group

I have joined a new group called Art for the Creative Mind. It looks to be a great group as they do a wide assortment of art and use lots of techniques and products. I think I will be able to let myself explore a great many art forms and have a ball with all the ideas I have now in my head. I will post as I create.

Treasure ATC for an ArtChix trade

This is my little beach fairy who's been beachcombing. I even used pure Nova Scotia sand at her feet.
This summer seems not to be making much progress. Rather like me. I have planned to do lots of art this summer but a basement renovation has gotten in the way. My husband has assigned me the task of turning my large collection of stuff into a small box of stuff. What a task! However, I amazed my family by giving away/throwing away a large assortment of dear to my heart items. I guess better to send them off now and have more room for new stuff. How do you ask an arts and crafts person to reduce their collection?? Oh well - I have accomplished it. Hopefully I will get one or two "art" days next week to try my hand at some new techniques. I tried one sample but it didn't turn out quite the way I wanted it to. I will post a photo later.

About Me

My photo
I am an avid photographer. My favourites are flowers, animals, nature. I have recently gotten into mixed media arts - painting, collage, ATC's and sketching. Lots of my photos are taken with art in mind. I live in the country with my husband, two dogs and a cat. I have two wonderful grandkids who visit often and keep me laughing. My motto is: Look for the good stuff in everything and everybody!
