just added a bunch of washers (and random stuff) to my shop.  I will likely include more stuff if my trip to the son's garage is fruitful...he has a box of junk put aside for me Grin  there's a quarter near the top for reference, these were all of the big washers I could find, plus some old perm rods (from those electric perm machines) just because I'm curious as to what someone would do with them.

8  Meet our new featured member andralynn! in MORE ART, LESS CRAFT by alteredmommy on: August 28, 2014 11:09:42 AM
I'm pleased to announce our new featured artist in More Art, Less Craft andralynn!!

A member of Craftster for almost 4 years, andralynn has shared many of her whimsical animals and monsters with us.  I enjoy the little back stories she includes with many of her creations, here are some of my favourites:


Storybook painting


A Little Monster


The Housekeepers

Bio
I live in Paris, Texas (which has its own Eiffel Tower complete with a big red cowboy hat!) and work from my little home studio as a full-time artist and writer. I have sold art to two major TV shows, have been commissioned to create art by children's hospitals, designed art for some children's textile companies, and just recently finished illustrating a children's book that will be available at the end of the year. Oh, and I love broccoli.

What mediums do you work with and which is your favourite?
I mostly work with acrylics, but I also love to draw using ink and markers.

Where do you find your inspiration?
I have two VERY imaginative little girls who provide endless inspiration with their stories and antics. Every day is an adventure filled with dragon hunting, picnics in magical forests, and tea parties with unicorns and fairies -- it's impossible not to be inspired with those two around!

Have you had any formal art training?

No, not really...but I have been making art for as long as I can remember, starting with scribbling on the walls of my bedroom (Sorry, mom). I only started my career as an artist about three years ago, and it's been a crazy ride ever since!

Do you make time for regular art making?
I paint or draw every day. I am a complete and total art-aholic. Yes, that is a word. I'm sure of it. 

Some of your best tips for aspiring artists?

Just make art. Forget what everyone else says or thinks. Just make art. If other people love what you make, that's great. If they don't, who cares. Just make art. If you love what you do, everything else will follow.

Of everything you've posted on Craftster what is your personal favourite?
I love creating monster paintings, because they're just pure imagination with no rules whatsoever. The Housekeepers are a particular favorite of mine. Not only are they friendly, they are noble and good too. 


What is your favourite project posted by another Craftster member?
That is a really hard question, because they are so many awesome projects to choose from. But if you twisted my arm, I'd choose this one because I am a HUGE Doctor Who fan and I am in awe of anyone who can sew like this:The Tenth Doctor Doll by FabledStitches

Thank you for sharing with us andralynn

10  Re: IYP (invite your partner) 25 - Silver Jubilee Gallery in The Swap Gallery by alteredmommy on: May 08, 2014 11:22:57 AM
This gallery is full of wonderful things and now its my turn to post what my wonderful partner cackle sent me Grin  We had decided on a few pieces of jewelry in an altered box, behold the fabulousness...



cackle made a gorgeous box that opens up to a smaller box inside, the outside is the coolest giant matchbox!  For reference the inside box is about the size of a regular matchbox.  and what I found inside is totally gorgeous....



We both like religious relics/icons so she made a fabulous icon like pendant from PMC (precious metal clay that is just about pure silver) that features a heart which is another one of my obsessions.  Its beautiful and I LOVE it so much!  The bracelet is made of silver wire, cackle hand made all the jumprings which have a slight hammered finish and fused them together. 



Close up, so much detail in this piece!



Close up, I love the hammered links and the modern look of this piece.


Thank you so much awesome partner, you have rocked my socks with this amazing package!!!!!
