Little Brown Truck Delivery at Art 'n Soul & More Birds

That little brown truck dropped off a few of our orders. So we now have re-stocked the Tim Holtz embossing folders that we ran out of and the bird cage die. Stamps from Peddlar's Pack arrived and more Dreamweaver Stencils. And the pearlescent watercolor tray set that Sue was busy introducing and writing up orders for at the birthday party arrived as well. And in Saturday's mail, Susie opened an envelope that showed the new Karen Lockhart stamps . . . another fabulous window scene stamp . . . gotta get my pink sheet out for those Lockhart stamps. And I eyed one set of the Labels Two Nestabilities die from Spellbinders that Marge will be using in her Layers of Spring class this coming week.

Susie is anxious for you to see her Magenta bird stencil card using the Graphic 45 paper (Eiffel Tower). When you look at, what do YOU see? She and I saw a bird on top of the Eiffel Tower. A customer who was in yesterday said that was a clever set of "legs" for the bird. It's amazing how our art creations take unique directions and what unique views and interpretations evolve from someone outside your close network of friends. Now I see both and it's fun. Makes me think . . . who else can I give "Eiffel Tower" legs to? (Think I'd look taller?)

I'm posting 3 beautiful designs by ANS customer & friend, Judy Daugherty now that I have her permission. Judy used Magenta's new bird stencils using the pigment ink direct-to-paper application and pastel oil crayons. How talented is she? We've known the answer for a very long time!


And a quick question . . . the question came up AGAIN to Susie:  when are you going to schedule a class making the Magenta kitty book? Don't be bashful, please let her know if you'd like to take that class and I'll bet she comes up with a date!
Our thanks to ANS customers and their "partners, husbands, brothers, sons, friends, etc.," who are celebrating Father's Day today. We thank you for supporting their friendship and creativity at Art 'n Soul. Their presence certainly makes our day more fun!
