Artizen Magazine Feature PLUS A Quiet Tutorial



If you peruse the latest "Truffles vs Truffles" issue of Artizen Magazine, you may find someone familiar mentioned in its pages... Oh heck, look at me, I can't be coy to save my life... Okay here's the deal. I'm featured in this month's issue of Artizen Magazine and I'm pretty happy about the whole thing. The article was written by Michael Helander, author of the beauteous art and craft blog Blue Velvet Chair. Thanks so much Michael and Artizen for the invitation and for the glowing feature.

Oh yeah. Almost forgot. Before you skip away, here's a quiet little tutorial for you for the above Tissue Box Valentines... Enjoy!


Did you get all that? Note that I also dabbed some gluestick glue to the spokes to keep the whole Valentine together. Now all it needs is your sweet message of love on the back, and you're off and running!

Okay. NOW  hop on over HERE to devour every delicious word of the Artizen Magazine article. Go to it.

  4. Yay, Michele!! Lovely to get another peek into your creating process. I find it hard to approach creative work with no expectations - I think you have found something special in being able to start with some materials and then play until something good happens. : )

    1. It works for me and it is so rewarding when something does arise out my play. I always learn something, and more often than not, I get new ideas in these moments. but certainly, everyone's process is different and I respect that.
