~EXTREMELY HEAVY PHOTO CONTENT~
Good Day ya'll,
Well things have settled down a bit, so it's time to show you the amazing creativity and outstanding art to be found at this year's ARTzona. I had a really great time, however, most of us got a bit depressed when the event was over. We wanted it to last till we got tired of it.........imagine that!
As the warning states above, there are a lot of piccy's so please bear with me. Keep an open mind on some of the subjects, we're a bunch of middle aged crazy women who can play and party hard......not that I did any of that...;o)
|These are called "Arches" which are about 6" tall by 3" wide|
and there was a great selection to choose from as my
small collection here shows.
|These are "ATC's" which are the size of a playing card.|
There were many different styles and mediums used
on these, which made for an awesome trade.
|Handmade charms were some of the gifts given by artists.|
|These are called "chunkies" and are roughly|
4" x 4"
|One of my all time favorite artists once again|
attended. Her name is Ruth Morris and I gushed
about her last year as well "click here"
Her and I got to spend more time talking this year
and some of my wishes are coming true. Ruth and
I are going to do some collaborating on
artdolls. I'm very excited about this. This is a
picture of a doll that she GAVE me......I was totally blown
away by this as it's an amazing piece of work.
|Here's a close up of the amount of detail she puts into these.|
You can check out her work on her website HERE.
I took the opportunity to invite her to come back out here,
and guess what???? She's coming to stay with me in March
and we're going to spend a few days "playing" together.
How cool is that?
|Here's my good friend Sharon (left) and my youngest|
|Our collection of artwork and dolls that we created in a local|
doll exchange last year.
|PLEASE DON'T BE OFFENDED|
This is an amazing piece of work from
another extremely talented artist named
Deb Peot and she's just showing her
|More examples from the other round robins|
that went on at other tables. I thought
they were all amazing and so fun.
|This one is my little sister's after everyone had worked on it.|
I added the image of the woman as the second layer, but
look at everything else that was added.
|Check out all the art supplies on just this|
one set of tables.
Well that's it for now. I'll be back soon with what I'm working on now and show you a swap I participated in and some other goodies I've received.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this coverage of ARTzona 2014.
