Arte Y Pico


So I have received a blog award from two people and have been incredibly slack about following it through. But here we go at last :)

Sue and Sharmaine nominated me for the Arte Y Pico award, which is quite amazing actually as it is given to bloggers who share their art and creativity making their contribution to the blogging world. Cool!

It works like this:

1. You pick five blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and the link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of Arte y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5 arty bloggers who inspire me (by no means all of them, just 5!) are:

1. Sylvia King, Germany - I love Sylvia's sense of freedom in her layouts and projects, it always inspires me to simply relax and create (and enjoy it!)
2. Emily Falconbridge, United States - Always always makes me want to get back to my sadly neglected art journal. And use paint. Not that I don't anyway, but she always makes me want to do it more.
3. Stephanie DosReis, United States - I'm a new fan since the release of her Wonder Years product range from Daisy D's. Seeing her work inspires me to look at other art forms as well as scrapbooking, and makes me want to get back to mixed media canvases, which I always love love doing. And I'm having an absolute ball scrapping with 'Wonder Years' papers and stickers.
4. Celine Navarro, France - The place I go for colour inspiration, and for looking at products in different ways.
5. Emma Ballereau, France - So I can't actually understand much French, but I adore this girl's work! Between her, Celine and Nikki Peterson (Scrap in Style TV), I've been looking at my edge distresser with keen eyes.... mwa ha ha.

I'm supposed to tell these people I've nominated them, but I'm not sure, LOL, I have never even met two of them but that is what is brilliant about blogging, no? To keep up with the people you know and love, or just love :)

Ooh almost forgot I have a share today, made this last night for the April 123 challenge. Handmade fabric embellishments, stamping with an egg carton and April somewhere in the journaling. This pic is when we were on holiday in New Zealand (South Island - I love Christchurch! and Te Anau... and Queenstown was awesome, Dunedin also v. cool...) and I was pregnant with Sienna.
