So, in response I ran to the art store and gathered some supplies...
Let's see what I get out of this itch....

Jessica, based in Atlanta, uses a variety of mediums to create her pieces, including (but I'm sure not limited to) use of India ink, lino cut block printing, gocco print, acrylic, collage and some digital. I can just image that her original pieces are full of wonderful textures.
Although these are not available in her Etsy store, Jessica also creates tables - which are my favorite of all her work - spectacular detail and wonderful color.

Her abstract scenery is gorgeous and so inspirational - it makes me want to go home right now and paint all day! (Work is over in t-6 hours...I can make it, I hope....)
Her work can be found at www.alisondare.com

I think the Odd flora card would have to be my favorite - I adore ink on kraft-ish paper (chipboard in this instance I think)
Anyways, modernradar, aka Tamara and Daniel based in Durham, NC; has found such a wonderful little 'niche' in terms of their design style. I would call it eco-modern-chic; if that even is a term (but I put it with dashes, so it can't be wrong! Just not necessarily right...)
Modernradar also has a website and a blog

I'm going to compile all my recipes that I have tested, tried and loved into a blank hardcover lab book.
Thus, the result of this will be: recycling all the magazines that I am keeping solely for the recipes in them and I will not spend forever sorting through said magazines looking for a recipe. As well, I will have a recipe book of filled with stuff that I will actually eat - and it will look super cool! I have thought about using cards before, and have tried to get into the habit, but cards just don't have enough space for me, and once I use more then one cards then things get messy and disorganized. Pictures shall follow this weekend as I start working on it :)
I'm pretty excited :)
Stepanka has such a unique style, I have never seen - or even thought of - porcelain pillows before; what a wonderful concept! Her artistic style blends well with her chosen mediums; creating beautifully textured and coloured artworks.

This one is most definitely inspired by the recent movie, "Across the Universe". It's from one of my favourite scenes. I almost wish my love life was reunited like theirs...but that would mean a nasty breakup, and lots of tears....so I'll take my happy relationship, and just keep in my head the one in the movie hehe. I've starting to experiment with some text in some of my pieces...we'll see how others go...
