First up, from the 365 Project, some amazing photography yet again. In honor of beach time in San Diego……
From the ArtBizBlog and Alyson Stanfield comes some organizing ideas. I just happened to see her Evernote mention, and I have just started using that on my iPad, so I want to go into this post more in depth….organizing lately has been off, to say the least!
Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA) does an auction of artwork every year as a fund raiser. This is the first year I have contributed a piece. One thing members are doing to promote the auction is doing 6-piece “collections” around a theme. I pleased to say my “Hotwired” has made it into two collections.
Here are a few more samples of SAQA collections, put together by Kathy York.
Here’s a quick video from Freida Anderson with some fusing tips, something I am just getting in to:
Jane LaFazio interviews Leslie Riley. I’ve admired both for a long time. Jane is a very successful water color, mixed media, and art quilter, and Leslie Riley is quite the motivator. Enjoy the interview!
Alisa Burke has a fabulous post on tools for sketchbooks and frequently asked questions. Lots of “I wants” in this list…it’s probably a good thing I don’t do a lot of sketching……
Thanks to Rachel of Rayela Art and The Textile and Fiber Art List, here’s a cool look at a new tool called PicMonkey for editing pictures easily. Rachel did some fun playing around with pictures of her own.
Here’s a wonderful sense of humor video from YouTube about European shopping bags. Some very clever designs!
A very “enterprising” story of a 10-year-old who has started her own sewing business. You go, Lizzy!
And finally, a piece of honesty and courage from an Eagle Scout from The Best Article Every Day.
Have a great week! Let me know what you find that’s cool.
