Be Dazzling | Inspiration Station

Time for a much-delayed Inspiration Station reveal. (Inspiration Station is a creative challenge where my sis and I go on our artistic journeys with themes that we come up with.) Here's one of my photographs that I'd chosen for the inspiration - I didn't realize it until now, but it's been three months since our… Continue reading Be Dazzling | Inspiration Station

Leafy Ring Dishes | Art Elements

I almost don't remember when I last played in the monthly challenges hosted by the Art Elements team. Challenge host for this month, Caroline, chose the theme Foliage, and I was sure I wouldn't find much time for creativity this month either.

We also… Continue reading Art Journal | Inspiration Station

Stormy Earrings | We’re All Ears

As usual, the design… Continue reading Stormy Earrings | We’re All Ears

Green, Stripes, Polka Dots | Inspiration Station

Continuing the theme-inspired creativity challenges that my sister and I throw at each other, our Inspiration Station, it was my turn to think of a theme. One day, looking at my sister stand near the curtains asking if I'd come up with a theme yet, I rattled off the three things that came to my… Continue reading Green, Stripes, Polka Dots | Inspiration Station

Wire-Form Inspired Statement Earrings

May's inspiration for the We're All Ears challenge at Earrings Everyday is Wire forms. Specifically, wire forms by artist Ruth Asawa. Erin Prais-Hintz, who hosts the challenge, discovered Asawa from the Google Doodle celebrating the prolific artist, and, inspired by her wire art forms, thought it would be a challenging inspiration for this month. And… Continue reading Wire-Form Inspired Statement Earrings
