Also, I have been working my tail off this week to get up to speed with life but I will be responding to emails and visiting blogs very shortly! I miss all of you!!
I'm in love with this TST and totally bummed that my piece is not finished. That means there needs to be a Mini-monthy soon because I want to share!! I love these flavors. It was amazing to see each person celebrate something wonderful within. I am inspired, humbled and truly grateful for the work created by these amazing, professionals.
Please join me for a delectable meal filled with flavor that will change your life and inspire YOU to celebrate YOU!
Catrina, creator of GrumpyKitty, created this wonderfully delicious piece.
"I guess I went more literal with this than was expected, but the first thing to pop into my head was Strawberries!" said Catrina. "I like them because of their vivid color, their sweetness, and the tartness behind the sweetness. I think that my personality has a few of those elements.
This was created in Photoshop using one of my watercolor paintings and stock photos. There is more info here. To see more of my art, please check out my blog.
Althea, creator of Salvaged Expression, created this truly stellar hat titled, The Glance.
"This hat is called The Glance because under it you will see the thousand different flavors of me," said Althea. "I've been saying forever that I needed to make something for myself. So this week I decided to spoil myself. I picked out my favorite yarns that I'd been saving for that perfect project and looked at photos until I came up with a hat design I wanted to make no matter how much material it would take. I let as much cat hair get on the hat as I liked and even worked one or two of my own hairs into this thing I think. Most importantly the hat ended up reminding me of things I like about myself, names of colors and numbers I worked into the stitches are special to me. It's tough, quirky and is a reminder to let myself shine because I can and still know how. I'm still a work in progress myself but if I come out anything like this hat I'll be pretty happy so thank you for this theme to remind myself that!"
Felicia Kramer, creator of Another Bright Idea, created this sensational piece titled, Imagine It.
"Inscrutable? Not so – I imagine I am many flavors," said Felicia.
Amanda, creator of Persistent Green, created this magnificent collaged art journaling page titled, A Whole Lotta Flavor.
"A little flavor? Ha! You know me, I can't just stick to one," said Amanda. "This week I finished the 100 in 100 creative challenge (100 art journaling pages in so many days), and to my surprise, instead of being fed up with it, I immediately wanted to begin a new art journal. Here's my first tasty entry!"
Phoenix Ravenswing, creator of KittyHawke, created this fabulous piece.
"What's Your Flavor? Spicy & a Bit Mysterious," said Phoenix. "I took inspiration from the advertisement when re-purposing some old window-hanging strands and one-piece mobiles. The colors make me think of both salsa & Hallowe'en, hence the title."
Phoenix Ravenswing, creator of Kitty Hawke, created this fantastic piece.
"What's Your Flavor? - Cool & Serene," said Phoenix. "Continuing the life-theme of opposites-that-complete, the other re-purposed-piece I've finished so far is this one. It reminds me of a snowy winter's night, cool, calm, silent, and peaceful."
Phoenix Ravenswing, creator of Crow Tarot, created this phenomenal piece.
"What's Your Flavor? Connecting the Opposites," said Phoenix. "This sterling-wrapped unakite shows my flavor. It's a wrap newly finished that had its start back another lifetime ago, or so it seems. :-P It's all about concluding the old cycles lately, so that movement forward into the new ones can happen. :-D It's also about finding the way to conclude the old cycles, as w/this wrap that I didn't know how to finish until two days ago. :-)"
Trina, creator of Woven Chains, created this gorgeous piece titled, "Spring Flowers".
"Over the last few months, my flavor has changed," said Trina. "It is much lighter, much more cheerful, much more optomistic, and absolutely, positively full of life. Spring Flowers represents all of that."
Maureen, a talented artist, created this exceptional 9x9 watercolor.
"For "A little bit of flavor," Maureen tried to paint the way Florida Key Lime Pie tastes . . . sweet and tart and wild with deliciousness."
