Saturdays Are Fun: Brilliant Color

“Life is about using the whole box of crayons.  ~RuPaul”

For the Love of Color! I do love color. You won’t see very many monochromatic scrapbook or art journal pages in my gallery. There is nothing wrong with monochromatic pages, in fact, I think they are beautiful, but I just never know how to stop adding color!

Please allow me to share my love of color with you today with some fun and brilliant color photo finds! Also at the end, I’ll share some of Tangcie’s most colorful offerings and some gallery findings!

Gesso Messy! Episode No. 2 {Gelato} By Tangie

Gesso Messy! Episode No. 2
I am so in love with gesso these days and I got a good chuckle out of the fact that “Gesso Messy”  sounds exactly like “Just SO messy”– a fitting name for that ooey, gooey, painty-like white stuff us mixed-media artists are always raving about!
The good news? You don’t have to get YOUR hands messy!

This “messy episode” comes with 4 clusters.


Hey Doll--It's Summer {Collab W/ Spun Monkey Designs} By Tangie

I’m thrilled to present my newest collab with Spun Monkey Designs!
You may have seen her amazing work in our gallery here at SBG as a collage artist and now I’m excited to be debuting her first kit with me!

Hey Doll – It’s Summer! School’s out, the days are longer and the nights are warm. It’s all about fun in the sun!  Bright and quirky, perfect for your art journal pages and scrapping those sunny memories!


Thanks for stopping by!
