Taking Flight

I love this book! It came in the mail yesterday and I love it. Its perfect for a beginner and those of us who have already started. Its part class and part encouragement. She has guest artists and projects and many of them I do not know so its wonderful meeting new people and seeing there work and learning new techniques. I loved hearing Kelli Rae's story and she writes very well. Its very encouraging and has great advice on staying on the Artistic Path. I highly recommend it.

You have really been going to town creatively! Journal pages, backgrounds and such AND your lovely well appointed studio. I showed G the stamp shelves your D made - I need some bad so now he has the idea what they should look like.(especially with the plexiglass)

My poor prayer flags basically disintegrated and now I need to replace them. I love seeing them blowing in the wind outside.

I stopped buying art books for now as I am running out of room for them. I can't see the image of the one you're talking about but it sounds good!

Create on!!

p.s. long comment, but tried to get it all in one.

I just bought this book while I was in Portland! I love it, too. She has lots of techniques and good advice/encouragement. This is sure to become one of my favorites.

Woo hoo! My book came this week too! As an old lady I am having trouble reading that script, but if I put on a lamp right over my head and put on my "cheaters" I can just about make out.

I look forward to trying some of her techniques. Bubble wrap - imagine that.
