|I just love taking beautiful magazines and piecing together bits and bobs to create a story. Some of my favourite magazines are the Stampington mags. The Somerset Life and Artful Blogging often have beautiful photos of flowers and vintage goodies, beautiful objects that can be reborn into beautiful art.|

Hello everyone! This month's project was inspired by a lovely cameo pendant that I saw over on Pinterest. I love cameos! I find them to be very classy and elegant. I had a great time creating my cameo. It was fun and easy to make. Here’s what I did.
This cameo would make a great wall hanger. I think she would make a lovely Christmas tree ornament as well. I really hope that you enjoyed this tutorial.
Happy creating! ~ Sharon

Do you have a gelli plate? Have you ever tried mono-printing using a printing plate? If not you are really missing out!

Recently I travelled to Holland, Michigan to visit with my best friend from high school, Ellen. Wherever I go I am always on the lookout for art and this trip was no exception. As usual I took a zillion photos! I decided I'd shared my visit with you. This is part three, the final installation.

“Exploring Art & Artist” is a new feature here at OOAK Artisan Showcase. Written by Ellen Schimmel Pearson, it’s a non-artist’s exploration of the creative world.
"I am so excited to be a part of OOAK Artisan Showcase and bring you interviews of artists around the country, and the world! I am looking forward to meeting some interesting and passionate people, and learning what drives them, what inspires them, and how they define their art. " ~ Ellen

So I said, "Is he here? Do you think he'd let me interview him?"
He told me his dad was teaching him how to weld and he noticed a pile of 'junk'. The artist in him said "Hey, I can make something with that!" (LOVE that!)
While sharing his sculptures I found out his current passion is virtual reality. I wish I could explain to you everything he told me but I have to admit it was WAY over my head! Something about assets and model creations?!!
He did convince me to give it a try in "The Dive", a den where he entertains other VR enthusiasts, for a fee! I won't bore you with my whole experience but here's just a clip of my experience in creating dimensional art.
|Foster just graduated from high school and is off to Kalamazoo to attend college in the fall. He will major in Computer Science. But, like I told his parents, I don't think he will finish college - he will be a self-made millionaire before then!|
I really enjoyed my visit with Foster and I am looking forward to watching where his path will lead him. He is truly an amazing young man.
I'm leaving you with some of his thoughts....
Part Two is coming, stay tuned!
