Mail Call!

The two mixed media paintings I bought from the etsy shop of Terri Stegmiller arrived safe and sound!! I first saw these while visiting her creative blog, Stegart . They are whimsical and adorable. They sure brightened my day!

Thanks to Terri! She is a creative woman and works in various mixed media forms of expression. If you have time, be sure to visit her lovely blog.

Terri has been taking online painting lessons this year, too. I first learned about the Paulette Insall painting class from Terri’s blog. I also have signed up for another online painting class from Karyn Gartel’s Altered Diva site.

Taking classes from others is a way to learn their style of applying paint or working with a particular medium. Then you need to infuse what you learn with your own style, pattern, etc. I can’t wait!

Other news: I’m organizing an inchie swap right now with a quilting group I belong to. On my “to do” list is to write and create an inchie tutorial today. Keep watching.. When I’m finished, I’ll post it here on my blog.

Regards, Carla

Etsy Purchase

I was blog surfing this morning and stopped by Stegart, Terri’s Blog. She featured some whimsical paintings on her site and I noticed she was offering them in her etsy shop. So I purchased 2 out of the three- both the paintings with houses.

They will look good in my studio, I LOVE to collect pieces from other mixed media artists. One of these days, I should pull out my collection and show you all. LOL!

Happy Monday to you all (Tuesday for parts of the world)!

Hugs, Carla
