First a nice hot cuppa tea!
Then it's time to get down to business aka writing!
When you're off to a slow start it always helps to channel one of your fav authors!
If that doesn't help, falling into holes and talking to bunnies might do the trick!
And as a last (delicious) resort ... cupcakes!
And now, let's hear a bit more about how Tam came to create her lovely prints!
I have always had a love of antiques, old books & magazines, and history. I am also a mixed-media artist, and I especially love working with papers and old print media and ephemera in my artwork. I saw some people on Etsy.com selling vintage images as downloadable files for use in artwork and for iron-on fabric projects. Then I became aware of people who were using similar images printed onto old book, music, and dictionary pages. I fell in love with them and thought, "Hey! I can do that!". So, Dictionary Art Printz was born. I haven't been doing this very long, but I love the process of finding antique public-domain images. I love the history of it. I also love taking some of those old illustrations and adding my own "spin" on them by adding other elements to create a type of antique digital collage of my own. The Etsy community is great, and I very much enjoy interacting with the customers who buy my dictionary art prints. The customers make it all worthwhile.
Thanks so much for being my guest today, Tam! It's been a pleasure having you!
Any print(s) that tickles your fancy? Let me (and Tam) know!
