Art for Christchurch

lemurkat over at atcsforall.com is raising money for her hometown of Christchurch – they had another huge earthquake – taken from her blog

February 22, 2011 was New Zealand’s Darkest Day. The second largest city, the “Garden City” of Christchurch, suffered a powerful 6.3 magnitude earthquake. Heritage buildings were destroyed, lives were lost and the many were left homeless.

Here you are able to “purchase” original art by a selection of artists, by making a donation to the Red Cross Earthquake fund.

I’m working on something for her to post – if you like to donate either artwork or buy some go see her blog at

Friends I know from atcsforall.com have joined up and started new fun shop and art site


check it out – fun place and plans to grow into all kinds of wonderful things.

The current Wonderstrange Arts site offers retail shops, but we also offer a creative blog, where visitors can find free downloads and tutorials, regularly updated and expanded by all five of us. We really hope that our ideas and giveaways on the blog will make you regular visitors to the site—and you can sign up for automatic updates via email.

Down the road, we plan to create a wonderful online bazaar atmosphere at Wonderstrange Arts, where we will host seasonal online art festivals, creativity retreats, and occasional artists-in-residence. We’re starting small, but we anticipate growing this little sideshow into a virtual three-ring circus. Come on over and take a peek—and if you like what you see, bookmark our site! We’ll be adding inventory and blog posts all the time. We hope to see you there!

a year has passed

well a little over a year – saw a thread over at atcforall.com on doing something creative each day by Robbygirl (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17805)   so trying to do better this year and do that plus post at least once a week on what I’ve done <g>

Got a lot of art stuff done over New Years weekend. Working on a journal pages for the Sketchbook Project – talk about waiting till the last min but that seems to be how I work.


here’s a couple of pages that a nearly done – still need to cut them down, line them and makes pages out of them

fabric base with gel medium transparency transfers and watered down paints in layers. not sure if I’ll sew on these – still thinking on that part of it.

new class

there are a few blogs I try to check every week – Blueskysunburns (http://www.blueskysunburn.com/)    is one – she is taking a new online class and of course because I’m just not busy enough with the two online classes I’m taking, swaps at two sites and working full time – I go to see if it’s something I might like to try too.

it is but I’m going to wait a bit because there is some free bits that you should do first


looks very interesting and I was reading it over – when I got to day three and found this bit that rings so true

Allow your art to be silly. Allow your art to be ugly… ugly doesn’t mean it is bad. Art doesn’t have to be pretty, impress your friends, or match your bedroom set. Allow your art to be whatever it wants to be. Only when you listen to that “true” voice will your art begin to come alive.

So check it out – good stuff there 🙂             http://www.souljournaling.com/prompts.php

found another cool site – love how she does her overlays on her collages and she does somthing I’ve thought about but haven’t gotten off my duff and tried – she prints out photo’s on old book pages – the blank aged ones at the front and back of books. cool look


My partner got her package in a swap over at Craftsters.org – this is one of the items I made for her – I like how it turned out – now to make one for me 🙂 it’s layers of fabric, charms and some wool roving for steam – thinking about another large one for hubby – something along the cowboy theme – maybe “a cowboy is only as good as his horse” and use a picture of his old horse CodyRed – still thinking on that one.
