Telling It Like It Is

February is bound to be a ton of fun as we will be "Telling It Like It Is" all month in our creations. Despite that lofty ambition, we will not be quite that honest in our art as we focus on faux techniques. We won't be faking any of our enthusiasm for amazing crafting, however, as we wend our way through February!

This month, we are pleased to have Rogue Redhead Designs back as our February sponsor. Rogue Redhead Designs features vintage and eclectic unmounted stamp plates as well as mounting supplies. Their quality deeply-etched images are sure to impress. We will also be welcoming the Rogue Crew, those members who are not also Gingers, to play along with us and our challenges this month. Be sure to check out the newly redesigned website at RogueRedheadDesigns.com.

We are very excited to tell you that Helga Strauss, the owner of ArtChix Studio and a wonderful collage and mixed media artist, will be our fabulous February Muse! Later this week, you'll get to see more of Helga's awesome art in our Muse Showcase. If you want to check it out now, go to her blog - My ARTistic Life.

Finally, we would love to announce our Visiting Artists for February who will be sharing their fantastic art and style with us! We are delighted to welcome Marjie Kemper and Sarah Engels-Greer to help us out with our challenges. We can't wait to see what they create this month!

Here's the straight-talk about what's coming up this February:
