I have been thinking of painting or sketching some of my photography since I started snapping shots. I've never gotten around to it...
So I'm asking for help! Look at the pictures in my Digital and Paint album and choose your favorite.
Leave your comments here or under the picture you choose. The most votes will get created!
Thank you for the help and support!
I came across this giveaway from one of my subscribed blogs, and had to pass it along! Go to the ClothPaperScissors Blog to ENTER!
No, we're not giving away Ty Pennington. We're giving away some of his very cool fabrics.
You might be surprised to discover that despite all his resources (he is host of one of TV's most top-rated shows, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," after all), Ty has many of the same issues with his studio that you and I have:
What you might also find surprising is that Ty designs fabric, and he does it in a very mixed-media way, using sketching, photography, stamp carving (wood and rubber), and paint.
- he has too much stuff;
- there is never enough space;
- he has to juggle a lot of creative interests at once.
His new line for Westminster Fibers, Ty Pennington Impressions, is full of organic patterns he recorded on his travels, played around with in his backyard using paint and hand-carved stamps, and then manipulated in the computer. You can see a video of how he explains his process at typenningtonfabrics.com.
But if you want a sample of his fabric line, all you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win some beautiful one-yard cuts.
Just tell us what you'd do with the fabric if you won. Winner will be drawn Monday, February 14.
Yep, that's Valentine's Day. So, show Ty's fabric some love with your comment and don't forget to pre-order the Spring issue of Studios for organization tips and tricks plus 28 creative artists' studios.

A fellow group member of mine, Joann Wheeler, has converted her Etsy shop to benefit a very noble cause...The Little Sisters of the Poor at St. Martin's Home in Catonsville, MD.
The Little Sisters have been caring for the needy elderly of Baltimore without interruption since 1869. That’s a long time! Today they face an unprecedented challenge because the 40 year old building is in need of major renovations in order to comply with Life Safety Code standards and meet the needs and desires of tomorrow’s seniors.
In order to help the sisters reach their budget, Joann is donating part of her sales toward the mission. Shop her special Etsy store, Artful Purpose and be a part of the solution!
25% of all sales go to Little Sisters of the Poor at St. Martin's Home, Catonsville, MD
100% of any sales of Religious paintings/prints go to the Little Sisters.
I love featuring new finds in my blog, but have decided to dedicate only one day per week to spotlighting these amazing artisans.
For my first Friday Feature I'm showing off the wonderfully creative crochet artist of Yarnabees on Etsy

Christie of La Petite Bowtique is the proud winner of Art By Belle's first giveaway! My fan base on facebook went well over 300 so we celebrated with a freebie!! The result was lovely, and only one lucky fan gets bragging rights to claim the very first print of this newest sketch card.
La Petite bows are very stylish, chic and affordable! I love the colored zebra designs she has. Her Valentine specials are so innovative and cute with flowers, jewels and even tiny bow clips. My daughter loves these!!
