Bloggers Challenge #68 – Inspiration Challenge

This week’s challenge was an inspiration challenge…I was very excited to do this one since inspiration challenges are my favorite…Lisa Somerville (our Bloggers’ Challenge mommy) picked this one as our inspiration… This is my interpretation… Of course I wanted to imitate the colors, but I also wanted to echo certain themes within the quilt; the […]

Bloggers Challenge 66 – Warhol Technique (and Artistic Outpost Sneak Peek!)

This week’s Bloggers Challenge was to use the Warhol technique…for those of you way to young or not born yet (1960’s)…Andy Warhol was a famous New York City artist who brought "pop" art into the mainstream, and developed a new, fresh style of creating…this is my take on one of his works… Basically the technique […]

Have you ever received a gift from your husband or significant other that wasn’t exactly what you were […]

Bloggers Challenge 57 – Christmas in July

So, I’m a little late with this challenge but just by a few hours!  This week’s challenge was to make a Christmas card.  I think it was supposed to make us feel cooler, and if so, it didn’t work.  I hate hot weather!  I ended up stamping this image about six times before I got […]

Bloggers Challenge 56 – Color Combo (Really Rust, Sahara Sand, Regal Rose, Blue Bayou)

Okay, okay…I know I haven’t been blogging regularly for the past month or so…company, blah, blah, blah…and this is last week’s Bloggers Challenge.  In my defense I actually had this done on time, but I had nerve blocks done last week Thursday, and once in awhile I get really sick from the injections.  Last week […]
