I am very excited to tell you that IKEsART is going to be published in the March/April edition of Through The CraftRoom Door Magazine as the Featured Digi Artist :-D :-D

Friend, mentor and all round groovy chick IKE or IKESART.COM is going to be showing some of her images in a TTCR!  This has always been one of my favs, due to the runners of the mag being so kind, balanced and authentic.

I HOPE you will pop over to IKESART.COM to see Ike's Work, perhaps purchase one/some images and to give IKE kudos at Ike's World Challenge Blog.


Below is an image I created as a background to honor Ike's Art!

I am so sorry that the digital pastel colors don't show up on my journal background.  But I hope you can appreciate Ike's Art anyway....

On the base background I used Ken Oliver Color Burst
Then Dyan Waverly stencils
Then Painter's Textured Grout
Then Tim Holtz stencils
Then Caran D'Ache Pencils
Then Kelly Creates Markers and Pitt Pens
I used a Stencil (which I honestly do not remember where I got it) for the uper right web
I then sprayed with Krylon

  1. WoWza ! I just adore all the gorgeous colours and texture on these pieces Samara. I wish I could be as free as that .... I struggle a bit with journal and MM pieces and have to repeatedly slap myself when I start to get 'anal' and fiddly hahahaha I am really looking forward to seeing us all in the TTCRD Magazine :-D :-D
    Thank you for making this for me and the huge 'shout'.
    Have a great trip :-)
