It's sneak peek time from the soon to be released (April 2009):
In This Garden acts as a showcase for a collaborative art project
sponsored by artists Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn.
The project explores the theme of gardens as a metaphor
for peace, beauty, tranquility, reflection, and creativity,
while at the same time offering readers an inspiring collage
workbook that explores the techniques, methods, and the
insights of the participating artists.
In This Garden includes memorable garden-related quotes that artists can use in
their own work, a blank garden gate template, and a
gallery of garden-themed imagery that readers can alter and
use in their own artwork.
Angela Cartwright's art and photography is
exhibited and collected internationally. Her
unique techniques are explored in her book Mixed
Emulsions. Known for her acting roles in Make Room
for Daddy, The Sound of Music, and Lost In Space, she
curates A Studio Gallery in Los Angeles, California
where she makes her home and garden.
Sarah Fishburn (Ft. Collins, CO) describes her work as
mixed-media narrative. Her art has been featured in
numerous magazines and a shelf full of books.
I picked this page to share for it's simple beauty. It is by Tiffini Elektra X.
So what was I going to make my garden walls out of? That was the first step in this endeavor.
It came to me! My Ennis House Block stencil.
This is one of my favorite design elements! And I think this project is perfect for it's maiden craft voyage.
Here is my first wall cut out. One of my ideas is to place vellum on the back and to weave things into the spaces. Well off to cut 3 more and think up some more ideas on how to grow my garden!
If you have an idea, please leave it! I would love to hear. As my thanks, you'll be entered to win a free book of the week!
Scrapbookers' Delight posted a photo with Angela at CHA, she's got some great designs over there so pop on over to check them out!
