So here's what's on the easel/table/floor of my 'studio'If you know me, you know I never do just one thing at a time...it's against my nature...and my ADD. That being said I always have at least 3 things going on at once, and several different journals so that I can jump around if something is drying or I just don't feel inspired to work on a particular page.
I am just about done with a Canvas with one of my favorite things...little funky houses! It's inspired by artist Kandy Myny's "Springtime Whimsy". Here it is! It's 16" by 24"

As you know I am crazy obsessed with Somerset Studio's many different Art Magazines. My favorites so far are: Art Journaling, Somerset Studio and my NEW Best Friend...Somerset Apprentice!
I basically carry as many copies of these as I can shoved into my gi-normous purse and I drool over them whenever I have a spare minute. I've seriously read every copy I have about a 100 times and will probably read three of them again tonight! Oh! Last year when I was in California...I walked into a Thrift shop and there on the magazine rack was like, TEN past copies of Somerset Apprentice!!! Can you believe it?!! A buck a piece! Who cares if everyone in there had 80's hair....I was in heaven!
So, what's fantastic about Apprentice is that it has spreads of a bunch of different artists and it shows one of their 'Mixed Media Masterpieces' and then gives you step by step instructions on how they did it!!!! I know right?!!! Crazy!
I decided that I would slowly make my way through the magazine trying the different techniques. I want to make sure I give credit where credit is due...so here is the front of the magazine...
