It's Friday and frankly - I'm exhausted. I'm not getting good sleep on my adventure at all. I spent most of the morning trying to tame my mane so I'm a little late getting to the computer - which is a real drain sucker. I'm really married to my routine - I even have a layout about it. Getting out of that routine drains my enthusiasm - even for this little blog I love - but I will keep on pushing forward. Warning - this blog post is going to be all over the place. I hope you find something of interest here today.
I'm really interested in watching creative people's process - both artists and crafters. The beauty of blogging and connecting in this way is the ability to see each person's process and things that bring them joy/inspiration. I'm never disappointed when I see a post on process. Here are three of my favorites right now.
*Geninne's Art Blog (Posts from Friday, June 9 to Thursday, June 15, 2010) - This piece is so beautiful. I really wish I was her sister Kiki - then this piece of art would be mine.
*Michelle Zindorf's Freedom in Creativity Blog - Really not sure how she does it. Even with all the great picture and instructions. I need help!
*Ali Edwards's "I love you today because..." mini album - I admire Ali's style a lot. It's not anything like mine at all.
*Stampington Company - Tempting Templates - templates to make fun projects like houses, purses, etc. with paper and fabric.
*Stampington & Company - The Studio - great reference for tutorials on art projects similar to what is represented in their publications.
*Stampington & Company - Video Library - video tutorials on multiple projects.
*Great tutorial by Kirstina Werner on creative use of ribbon on cards. Love it.
I love bold colors and patterns. I gravitate to greens, yellows, and blues, but am open to almost anything. I love the bold colors used by these three artists.
That's it for now. No big plans today. I'm not feeling so great so I'll probably play it pretty close to the chest today. I hope everyone has a good day. Until then...
