In today's Play Date, [...]

I love the conversations that happen when I am arting with friends.  Hearing why we each enjoy the supplies we do always sparks my creativity.  I find it amazing that even if we are all talking about the very same supply, we have totally different reasons why we love it.

4 Simple Steps to Use an Art Book for Inspiration thumbnail

One of the things that I enjoy about reading an art book is that it inspires me to play.  Now, I don't always do exactly what is in the book or do it exactly how the artist did it.  It's a place to jump off, to start, to play. Today, I used Mary Beth Shaw's [...]

Stamping on Gelli Prints with Some Strong Women thumbnail

What do I do with my Gelli Prints? I play with them.  How?  So many many ways.  Today, I'm stamping on them. Using Gelli prints with stamps gives it the painterly, loose look I like without having to plan.  If I tried to color the stamps intentionally, I'd over think it and all the looseness [...]
