Creative Crew Showcase - ART by HAMERLING

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

As I mentioned on Monday, today sees the start of a new series on my blog, Creative Crew Showcase.  And I'm honored that the first Creative Crew member to have her work featured in the Showcase is my good friend, Diane, of ARTbyHAMERLING.

Diane is an incredibly talented artist who works in many mediums, in addition to the adorable acrylic on canvas showcased here.  AND there is currently 25% off her ENTIRE stock!




Painted on a 10" x 8" stapled canvas, they are both bargains at the sale price of $17.77 EACH with FREE shipping within the US.  If the one you want sells before you can get it, commissions of the design are available (allowing 30 days for production, plus a few extra for shipping.)

Although adorable, if they are not your thing, OR you'd like something smaller and more easily shippable internationally, Diane has some stunning jewelry available in her collection.  I've not worn any jewelry for years, but will be likely be ordering something from her.

Regardless of whether you're in a position to buy anything, if you're on Facebook, please do give her page a like!  And if you'd like to join my Creative Crew, please do.  ALL creative souls are welcome!

Hugs,
Em and Diane

Patterned Paper and/ or Colors at House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the 1st of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards.  This month we're asking you to create a project using patterned paper and or the colors from the inspiration photo...


And here's my card...


Similarly to last month, I've used another image from the Paper Nest Dolls, some of the color palette, and the same die/ embossing folder combo.  Yes, the little man is a bit pinker than usual, but perhaps he's spent a bit too much time in the sun?

Card: Unbranded White and SU Dapper Denim
Markers: Spectrum Noir
Image: Owen with Toy Boat from the Paper Nest Dolls
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions Noble Ornate Pierced Squares, CE Pinpoint Waves embossing folder, and Nuvo Sparkle Shimmer pen (on the boat)

Challenges...
#150 AG at Creative Fingers
Wk 30 AG at Polkadoodles
AG at TTCRD

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
