Art journalers, get your chores done early today. The Art 'n Soul Journal Club meets all afternoon at the store today, from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. Five heavenly hours of art! If you've never been to our Art Journal Club meeting, you have an open invitation to join in. There is no fee or pre-requisite, just your enthusiasm for art!

From the Magenta blog, here's a lovely birthday tag that you'd be very proud to present.

And then look at this "shabby apple" card from Design Team member Edith Racine. She's using one of my very favorite Magenta stamps, the Apple Blossom (14.640.M).

Peet Roeven has been very busy on the Penny Black blog. I always love what she does. The background paper that she is using comes from Penny Black and I've had it on backorder for a couple of months . . . patience is killing me!

And then I really like how Peet used the Penny Black gate die and the floral corner stamp to create a very inviting birthday card.

We're going to look into purchasing the Dina Wakley paints for Art 'n Soul.

I discovered this artist from the IMAGINE Crafts' blog; they feature links that they like for the week on Wednesdays. Shilpa uses IMAGINE Crafts' Fireworks! sprays to make this vibrant-colored background, and also used it to color the butterfly and die-cut sentiment.

This looks like a watercolor project, and it's Fireworks! that she has sprayed and heat set between colors.
