Three Ways

I'm starting a new littler feature called Three Ways where I take one subject and look at it in 3 different ways. I might change the angle or the color, or the arrangement depending on the subject and what intrigues me about it at the time. The idea is to get you to look at things differently in order to find new inspirations from one subject.

Since Halloween is approaching, I thought I'd post picks of the lovely lady (I'm assuming she's a lady)who has taken up residence in my backyard. If you are squeamish about spiders, don't scroll any further.




OK, I know it's bad to have an extra pic the first time I post this Three way feature, but this one was too good to leave out. So think of it as Three Ways with a bonus! I'll try my best to keep it to three from now on or I'll have to change the name!


Another bonus** Check out my mini spooky glowing ghost tutorial on the BEST Baltimore craft Blog! BOO!

Be Inspired Treasury I

I've decided to incorporate making Etsy treasuries as a tool to look at inspiration. It gives me a reason to play in the treasury, share other artists work and hopefully inspire readers too! Here's my first "Be Inspired" list. It was inspired by October 17th's "Daily Dose of Inspiration" Photo:

Click the photo to see the original Treasury list and link to the featured artists.

Feel free to play along. Take this photo or any other from my blog and create a treasury inspired by it. Post a link in the comments and I'll post it here for everyone to see. I'm thinking this may become a future challenge/giveaway activity.

Inspiration Revealed - Artists Reveals

A few months back I started a Flickr group, Art Inspiration Revealed, so other artists could share and reveal their inspirations alongside their finished work. Here are a few of the inspirational reveals:

Tiny Creatures - With its inspiration
"I was struck by the beauty of tiny creatures in the microscopic universe: particles, bacteria, viruses, etc. Each of the five "bulbs" in this necklace are inspired by a handful of these strangely beautiful creatures, in an effort to make this invisible world VISIBLE to the human eye." Photo and quote by Veru Designs

Today's Daily Dose of Inspiration

I object 3 ways. Not sure why I didn't take a pic looking straight down. I'll have to remember that for next time. That might be a fun idea for a new blog feature.
