The creative wossname

I had a brilliant afternoon yesterday, simply following links to the websites of different artists (in all kinds of media and at all kinds of levels of competence). It was funny, touching, inspiring, and sometimes just downright weird....

I found a lot of the links on the Craftzine blog, although once you're on an artist's website it's fun to follow the links they recommend, too. Some of the best (for a variety of reasons!) were:
This is why I love the 'net. I would never have seen any of these by other channels. I find other people's work so inspiring - not in a plagiaristic way, but because the best art (and craft) makes you look at things a different way. And because some of the stuff out there is more bizarre than anything I could ever have dreamed up myself.

Tigger says, "I'm very artistic too, you know. I create poses."

The papercuts are amazing! I like the balloon dresses, shame there's nowhere around her to wear one!

Er, when I typed "around her" I did , of course mean "around here"! There are, obviously, many blloons around her...

All I kept thinking about the bloon dresses was, 'So - one teenage boy with a pin....' :)

Thank you for the comment about old fashioned larders that you left on my blog.

Reading your post for today, I thought I would let you know about another blog I have (a very different one from SHOUTING AT THE RADIO

It is called

TIMES RHYMES

You might like to make a critique of the art work. (I shall hold my breath!)

It is a set of illustrated rhymes (like nursery rhymes) which are designed, primarily, to help little children learn their 'times tables' without noticing that is what they are doing.

I put a new illustration there each Monday.

Let me know what you think.

Best wishes

Susan
