I hit the art supply lottery just by gushing over the new GOLDEN products at our local business supply store ! I struck up a conversation with the store clerk about how amazing this brand of paint and gesso was and how excited I was to FINALLY be able to try the other products out. It took me awhile to choose the 2 ( on a budget ! ) which were ( the largest bottles ) Heavy Gel Medium and Molding Paste . I must have seemed pretty happy because the store clerk pulled out a box of smaller bottles and told me to take them home to try out ! She said I am the only one who's shown any interest so I should take all of them! There were bottles of Molding Paste ( light /coarse/semi-gloss ), Absorbent Ground , Gesso (white/black /sandable hard ) Oh what fun I'm going to have !

Have any of you read novels by Canadian author Ann Marie MacDonald ? She is my favorite ! When I'm reading her stories I get so immersed in them I don't want to put the book down! She invents characters I'll think about for days afterward and the storyline is so incredible and deliciously written I feel as though I'm seeing it instead of reading it. I've read "The Way The Crow Flies" for the second time now and another fav of mine "Fall On Your Knees " twice. They are both mesmerizing and if you love to be shocked and intrigued ,read one of her novels.
This prompt really stumped me but I thought my little bear story fit perfectly ! I blogged the story already http://lisaschmidtartstudio.blogspot.com/2010/06/bear-cub-stopped-in-for-breakfast.html F you're interested in the complete story . The painting in this page is a copy of a watercolor I created in 1995. It was a perfect fit to this entry and saved the day as I was struggling with MAJOR artistic block ! Hope you like!

These pieces are for the truly feminine gals who adore dressing up and adding a touch of glitz and glam to their summer fashions! Maybe it's the influence of the movie Sex In The City http://www.sexandthecitymovie.org/ that's inspiring me lately, but whatever it is it's working ! I think Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte would agree. xo
Rhinestones, glass, crystals, metal and semi precious stones (citrine) are all found in these beautifully crafted pieces.

Okay my newest obsession for my jewelry line is leather! It is awesome to work with and so versatile. My clay beads serve great for the clasp and the baby Falcon feathers and tiny leather flower....omg way too cool! I love it so much I'm wearing it right now! Don't worry, I'll make more! xox
