More from Arlington


So I wanted to share a little more from this past weekend with you. I had the opportunity to meet some other great artists including Cindy Norris, an amazing Christian artist. She was originally an art teacher and with the support of her husband made the jump to creating art full time. On her website you can see some of her paintings and giclee prints that she has available. She is a wonderful person to talk with and I enjoyed meeting her!

I also was able to meet Cheyne of Cut Out and Collect , who is also a member of Etsy Dallas with me. She makes some fab handbags and wallets be sure to check out her site.

This weekend I will be the Farmers Market in Coppell from 8-2 with my good friend Cherry from Cherry's Creations . Hope to see you all out there!

Wearables

Have you been looking for a new outlet for your creativity? Try making some mini art that you can wear. Jewelry is always a good seller and the more unique the better, so why not create some based off what you are already doing.

Do you paint or take photos? Try shrinking down your art and putting it on dominoes or other game pieces.


This one of kind pendant is from Lonesome Road Studio

Or try using some scrap wood to create pendants. One of my favorite artists Pamela Michelle makes some of the coolest necklaces out of wood, like this little guy


What ever you do make sure to keep consistent and make sure to show the rest of us.
