Crowabout Studio B - hang on to your sunglasses!!!

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There's a new designer on the block over at - Nancy Baumiller, a very talented Zettiologist who is well known to many for her magical journals, collage sheets and challenges.  I knew her first as the kind and funky person behind  'Something to Crowabout" !!  She says it best so check out  her shop opening  announcement  

She has count'em ..... 123456 7 new packages for purchase, including a freebie.  Here is a sampling of  just two of them:

These images are a ton of fun to play with, and I spent a couple of days this past week creating a few examples.  I am a real newbie when it comes to this style and so don't judge me too harshly please!  It came as no surprise to me that Terri Kahrs of Pringle Hill Studio is also on Crowabout Studio B's Creative Team - so you may want to surf on over to Terri's blog here to see the fun collage work she created for Nancy.

And here's a few of my first attempts at using her 'parts' - they are both by hand and digital -

Hello my friend, I adore your new, bright and cheerful pieces you made using Nancy images. I want to tell you something but I don't want it to come out wrong or to offend ANYONE. I just don't want to see you get into that whole Zetti art making totally because you definitely have your own very beautiful style that I love and that I'm in awe of. It seems so many people do that Zetti artwork and it's not always original looking. You are such a true artist Trudi and you have taught me so much, just stay true to yourself okay? Does that make sense? Did I offend anyone? Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love the Zetti style of artwork. I love Nancy's work, she's truly amazing and of course so is Teesha Moore. That being said, Trudi your artwork has always blown me away, you are just incredibly talented, you don't ever have to use anyone else's style.
