a medley,a potpourri, a work of art collaged from the fine arts of various sources.
Every once in a while, you meet an artist that takes the word Artisan to yet another level. Some artists can leave you in awe and almost humbled by the visual experience.
Mindy Sommers of Vintage Tile Murals has done just that, visit her lovely website:
Vintage Tile Murals, Art Gifts and Home Decor Accessories
If you still have gifts to purchase for anyone that loves art, and if you can get away with a promisary note until the package arrives, then this is the site to shop for the most incredible art offerings.
Thank-you Mindy, for sharing your beautiful artwork.

Of course I said yes....what a wonderful list of information and inspirational reading material.
I think I'm gonna have to move the coffee machine right into my office so I don't have to waste any time getting my coffee.
Do check out Linda's Websites, her dolls and patterns are incredible. Sigh....I am running out of life time to do all these wonderful projects. Not only will you enjoy her sites, but she has tons of valuable links to keep you going for awhile!

So there you have it! Now I will start to post more info on all of the above
There are 6 designers plus Gail whom I have personally taken to calling the Shabby Queen although she doesn't know it yet. LOL
Kathi aka outonawhim makes the cutest angel tags, just follow her links on her blog to see them.
Carole Dawn aka cdsartisticendeavors she makes gorgeous polymer beads and sells them at fab prices at her Etsy store.
Sally aka sallylsmith Not only is she very talented as an altered art artist, but she paints beautiful primitive Santa sticks and sells them at her Etsy shop too.
Sharon aka myvintagestudio She does incredible art, I love her vintage style and I am drawn to her digital collages. I'm not sure if she sells somewhere, but her and I will be doing some trades in the new year so I am happy.
Then of course, there is the Gail aka the Shabby Queen herself our group leader. Oh just go check out her site, she doesn't need me to plug her, she is a very talented lady.
And last but not least there is well...... me!!!
Oh what can I say, she picked me because of my cute avatar!
Our first project was to create Art Cards (ATC/ACEO's) using one of Gail's digital ATC background sheets. We were only required to make one ATC but because the sheet comes with 9 images I did them all. The sheets are easy to order, then you download them to your computer and print them out. The nice thing about the digital downloads is that you can print them over and over again. What a savings.
This is the background I chose (yeah what a bonus I got to choose which one to work with)
There are 11 cards in the series, 2 are already for sale on Etsy these 9 here are going to be listed in my new store so do check it out when it opens.
