                       SPARKLE LIKE YOU MEAN IT

  
Any time I hear the words "Live Happily" or "Sparkle Like You Mean" it, I immediately think of fellow friend and artist, Lori Sparkly Franklin. Doesn't the name just put a smile on your face? 

Lori is a mixed media Artist who lives in Northern Minnesota. Her first passion is to paint on canvas, she also loves collage work in which she will uses reproductions of her original work together with vintage paper and creates new whimsical works of art, as shown below.



Prints of Lori's Beautiful Art work are turned into "Confetti Pasta" in order to create brand new Collage Works of Art. 


Lori also is a jewelry designer of her "Sparkly Necklace Collection". She incorporates Art with Vintage and also New Elements. So so cool.

  We both share a love for Backyard Birds, so naturally i am Crazy about one of Lori's latest original paintings.

Rubbermoon Stamps were lucky to have Lori as one of the first Design Team Members. The first two images are samples of her own stamp designs. You can purchase these wonderfully affirming RubberMoon Stamps by clicking on LIVE HAPPILY and also SPARKLE LIKE YOU MEAN IT.


I am sure you must be interested in seeing more of Lori Sparkly Franklin's work  at Sparkly Hearts Studio
Thank you so much Lori for allowing us to feature your beautiful work and your RubberMoon Stamp Designs.

   A "Dream World" with Stampstracts!






I have to say that I keep looking and looking at this wonderful piece by RubberMoon's owner and art director, Kristen Powers. I can't seem to keep my eyes off of it.  Kristen has come up with a terrific collection of abstract stamps ("STAMPSTRACTS") that have a myriad of endless Creative Possibilities. That is what I love about Kristen's stamp designs.  She not only draws the most amazing whimsical images of characters and various subjects, but she also designs these masterful shapes so the buyer can create their OWN works of art! The STAMPTRACTS line was just released in July and the response has been amazing! If you click on this link you will be introduced to the entire collection. Listed below are the stamps that Kristen used for this particular Masterpiece.

(1) Dream Maker
(2) Sorta Scalloped
(3) Effervescent
(4) Tri Dots
(5) Surround
(6) Scribblestracts

Kristen used Peerless Watercolors to create these vibrant colors in her piece "Dream World".  Peerless Watercolors can also be purchased at Rubbermoon.com

Thank you so much Kae Pea for creating such a beautiful and spell binding piece for us to share!

               Teresa's Adorable Chick




Welcome back to Wonder-Full Wednesday on the RubberMoon Art's Blog. Today I would like to feature the exceptional Art created by Teresa Kolar.  Usually I share a little back ground into the artist, but I want to share verbatim, the well stated Bio that Teresa has written herself...

"I work in a very special place called Sweet Mare Studio. We are located on Island Lake approximately 20 minutes outside of Duluth,MN. 

A few years ago my good friend, Lori Sparkly Franklin, invited me to participate in a class at her studio. The class was being taught by Kristen Powers of RubberMoon stamps. I had a fantastic time learning with KP. Not long after that KP invited me to be a guest writer on her RubberMoon blog and create some stamps for RubberMoon. We have been friends ever since.

I have been painting, drawing and creating all my life. My mother is an artist. All of my siblings are artists. When i was a child I watched my mom paint and was greatly inspired. I have been “making things” since I was a child. 
Currently my favorite muse is botanicals/florals. I use acrylics and pastels to create them. 

I graduated from the university of Minnesota, Duluth with a teaching degree. I have always loved creating and teaching. At Sweet Mare Studio, I conduct art classes that are small and intimate. This affords me the opportunity to provide special attention to each student. We learn a lot together and we have a great time.

I truly believe all of us must be creative to be happy. Creating keeps us vibrant and inspired about life. It engages our brains and gives us interesting things to talk about and share with others.

 Various businesses include my work in their collections and my art has been published for retail sale throughout the country." -Teresa


I had the pleasure of getting to know Teresa on FB, when she Participated in the Original RubberMoon Design Team. Besides being a very kind and gifted Artist, Teresa also has a incredibly fun sense of humor. 

The above Adorable Chick was created by Teresa using her own RubberMoon Stamp design. Many of Teresa's stamp designs are wonderful tools to use in the background of any of your own creations. She used her stamp design, Organic Circle, to create movement in the background of this painting.



Teresa has a Fantastic Etsy shop where you can view and purchase some of her amazingly beautiful work, 
TC KOLAR ART. A sample of her beautiful ART below.


                          So So Beautiful...Right?!

Thank you Teresa, for sharing your work and letting us get to know you a little more!

             A Road Trip with Frida 


Fall is readily approaching, and I don't think of my favorite time of year without reflecting about the well known day of observance in Mexico, called "Day of the Dead". This special holiday is celebrated throughout Central and Southern Mexico and also by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially in the United States. It is a multi-day celebration of gathering of family and friends to pray for and remember loved ones who have died, and help to support their spiritual journey. Traditions connected to this holiday include building private alters called "ofrendas", honoring the deseased using sugar skulls, marigolds and favorite foods and drinks of the departed loved ones. Participants visit graves with these items as gifts. The Mexican Day of the Dead celebration is similar to our culture's Memorial Day as a time to honor the dead. The Spanish tradition includes festivals and parades as well as gatherings of families at the cemeteries to pray for their beloved deceased at the end of the day. 
RubberMoon Stamps owner and designer, Kae Pea, has done such a wonderful job recreating so many of these images with her Milagros Collection. SO many wonderful stamps depicting this rich culture. You will want to check them all out!

These stamps and the Day of the Dead helped to inspire me to paint the above Vintage Trailer Piece. I will list all SEVEN RubberMoon stamps used in the painting above.

I hope you have enjoyed today's post about the "Day of the Dead" as much as I have enjoyed making it.
