ANNOUNCEMENTS: When you have a moment, please visit Amanda's blog, Persistent Green, to hear more about an exciting project we have been working on! There will be more about it on this blog this weekend!
The works created for this theme will make you rejoice. It will make you lean into your computer screen to breathe in the colors. It will make you hug someone just a little tighter today. It will make you want to dance in the streets. This theme is love, color, Spring and celebration.
These artists created some of the most magnificent pieces. You will want to take them all home, to wear them, hang them and treasure them forever. A BIG thank you to these professional, talented artists. This work is simply fantastic.
Come bask in a bit of color and a whole lot of happiness....
Iris, creator of Iris O'Connor, created these delightful bits of beauty. (I'd also like to welcome Iris back! She was one of the first TST players when I started this and she's been very missed!)
"The houses are cut out of timber now so they are proper little houses with a nice little story to go with it," said Iris. "The houses in the photo need some minor details done to them - like 2 coats of varnish - but they will be available in my shop from early next week."
that's a link to one of the Ballinasnoot houses with the story in my Etsy shop :D
Maureen, a talented artist, created this truly stunning piece.
"Happiness is a . . . box (or two) of new markers. Results: 11 x 17 inches of pure joy," said Maureen.
Jodi Horgan, creator of Beaded Art to Wear, created this magnificent piece.
"Happiness is SPRING," said Jodi. "I've been thinking a lot about flowers. Beautiful green shoots are starting to poke their heads out of the ground. I created this "flower" ring with silk soutache trim, crystals and beads."
Amanda, creator of Persistent Green, created this mixed media art journal page titled, "Happiness is Here."
"Happiness, for me, is remembering to be grateful for THIS moment--not always leaning into the future, or backwards to the past," said Amanda. "If onlys and someday-whens can destroy finding peace and joy right here, right now. So, happiness is here!"
Natasha, creator of Doodlestar, created this piece.
"I LOVE the way the background in this piece came out. The colors are what's within me - the longing and wish for Spring. But the people fell short LOL. I will be reworking but I had SUCH fun playing."
Has viewing all these colorful treasures made you want to create something new??
Well, the next theme is.........."Flowers for a Friend". Celebrate the beauty and blossoming of flowers and friendship!
