Saturday Link List - in search of artistic blogs


My best blogging buddies on Etsy's BBArtisans team were just talking about adding more members to our group.  One of the requirements is that teammates must post at least 8x's / month.  So I thought as I perused through my Favorites list on Etsy, I'd look and see whether these artists would be good candidates.  What do you think?

111collagedesign  Mixed Media Collage Art by Abby Sernoff  
I love paper and mixed media.  So Abby's artwork is heaven to me.  In her shop she has  original canvas pieces, ACEOs and prints -  many of them with birds and other natural subjects. Her blog and website are attractive but I can see her major thrust is her artwork and not blogging. 



Mini shadow box art by SusanFayePetProjects
What first attracted me to Susan's shop was her desktop dioramas, like the one above.  Isn't this just precious!?  As you can see, she's a cat lover and is inspired by nature.  I went by her blog and found that instructions to these dioramas were available in a tutorial!  Thanks Susan, I'll have to try this!


Yellow Dog Rose barrette pair by joantaylerdesign
Joan is a polymer clay artist, with both a blog and a website.  And by looking at her summer schedule, she's very involved with craft fairs and markets.  I first came upon her shop when I was looking around for some hair barrettes.  Other items in her shop are polymer clay beads, whistles and texture sheets for artists!


Turtle quilt by straythreads
I've been following Ann's shop for quite a long time and just love her quilts and other textile arts.  If I was going to recommend one artist to invite to join the BBArtisans team, Ann would be it.  I've never been by her blog before and was pleasantly surprised to see all the interesting topics she writes about.  She also looks to be an amateur photographer, like so many members of our team!        


Blue Bird Art by hjmArtGallery
One more blogging artist on my Etsy favorites list that I must mention is Helen Janow Miqueo, a California artist who paints whimsical trees, flowers and birds.  They are lively pieces that will brighten up any room.  Helen looks like she's picked up her blogging in the last few months and enjoys promoting others and well as herself.  What every teammate appreciates!

Awesome mix of artists and blogs! I especially like the mixed media pieces. Why don't you send this link to the BBA leadership? I think that there are definitely some potential team members here.
