Some of you may know of this gal’s art work; Terri Stegmiller. She is a very talented and gifted artist. I have been fortunate to get to know her a little bit through her blog!
Recently, she featured this cute little bag on her blog, and I happened to make a comment, asking her if the kitty needed a home in Montana! To my delight, she agreed, and sold it to me! When it arrived, I discovered a delightful treasure tucked inside:
With the adorable zippered pouch (which is lined and very well-made), an Artist Trading Card (also known as ATC’s) was tucked inside… (To see more of Terri’s art, visit her Etsy store here.)
|The back side of the zippered pouch… hand painted, dyed, stamped… I love it!|
Look at all the terrific texture!
She has hand painted, papery, collaged… hand stamped (and what all else I don’t really know). Just suffice it to say she knows her stuff. It’s just quite … BEAUTIFUL!
She is also part of a terrific team at THREE CREATIVE STUDIOS; another blog that is full of inspiration, free projects and LOTS of amazing techniques; they feature one every month from a guest artist… and I will be that guest artist for JUNE! She is also part of an artist group who has published a book, as well as another blog of their own, (she is a busy lady!) called Twelve by Twelve.
If you’d like to see some of the fabulous art she produces, please see her blog… and like me, follow it! I love her painting style. Well, I love her style, period. Her colors, and what I have to come know as her signature KITTY!
“Here kitty-kitty!” She has several books… which are on my fabric artist book ‘wish list.’ One is on making art quilts with fabric paper. I don’t have all the names of them handy, but I am sure if you go to her blog, visit her website, or google her name, you will find them!
She’s my “neighbor” out here in the WEST! And if I ever get to North Dakota, I hope to meet her in person. Thanks Terri! I appreciate your support, and I love your ART! Blessings to you!
