ARTchix Studio is 10

ARTchix is 10 years old this month, how can that be?? I remember when Helga Strauss started ARTchix Studio! Her collage sheets and art supplies have been a staple of my mixed media art for 10 years. I am so happy she created a masterboard and asked her blog readers to create something with it for a blog challenge. Read Helga's challenge here -find out more about masterboards. Now extended till Nov. 8!! Details here at the end of the post : )

I took Helga's challenge and used her art to create a card for her celebrating this special birthday. With much love & thanks to you, Helga!  xoxoxox lenna

  1. Wow - LOVE this card; it's so pretty and the stitching is fabulous! Alas, an archaeological dig would be required to access my sewing machine! I might just have to do that, though; you reminded me how awesome stitching looks on paper. I checked out the Masterboard challenge you did in 2009 also; those ATCs are just wonderful. (Wish I'd found Artchix sooner!)

    Don'tcha just love Helga? She is the reason I finally bit the bullet and joined Facebook. (I still don't like Facebook, but at least I can keep up with Artchix there.)

    Hope you're having a creative week!

  5. I can't believe it, 10 years already. Should have noticed it on the link on my own blog but I've been so busy lately that it had escaped my notice completely. You've made a beautiful piece of art to celebrate and I must go and read up on the Masterboard Challenge!

  7. Lenna,
    HOW WONDERFUL! I love the use of the Gold on this card. What are you using? I've tried different Gold pens in the past but they get clogged up so easily with I work them into my mixed media projects. I end up using paint but I can't get those thin lines then.

    Thanks for sharing ;-)

  8. Sandra, I am using a Krylon 18K Gold marker. I've been using this brand from years and love the shiny metallic gold (and silver) lines I can make. I love edging pages with it. They make more than one colour gold, but the link above shows the one I use the most. Thanks for your compliments! Lenna

  10. Yes, Denise! When I was teaching classes in CT and you had your store Kookalicious -that's right! I used a lot of ARTchix studio products in my classes and ending up being a rep at the time. I remember your store with such fondness. : ^ ) lenna

  11. Thanks for the info on the Gold Leafing pen! I have it on my TO BUY list on amazon ;-) I love a touch of Gold to bring out the shimmer in my artwork.
