artist on call for stampington
you may or may not know that one of my jobs in life is to be an artist on call for various stampington magazines, ie. Somerset Studio's Inspiration.
what does this mean?
well, i get cool stuff to create with and a deadline to submit these creations that then go into the various magazines. yes, i get paid for this fun stuff too.
for instance a while back i got these very cool smallish hangers to decorate. i took these a created a couple of hangers for a teenager's room in shabby chic. they appeared in inspiration magazine last (i think it was )september.
today i completed a load of work for the magazines. i was given two sets of silhouette stamps of women dancing of which i used to make:
5 pairs of swinging '60's earrings
5 journal pages
of course i didn't need to create so many, but today was my first day in a very long time back to creating and i felt f.r.e.e. to create something and went into overdrive.
i can't tell you how good this feels. tomorrow i am going to complete these 3 large paintings that have been collecting dust for months. i am hoping to have a show this saturday night in escondido (262 east grand ave.)-- come on by from 6:30p.m.- 8 p.m.
also tomorrow brooke and i might go see "slumdog millionaire". she didn't feel up to it today. she is getting over a very heavy duty flu. still coughing a bit.
