We Love Color!

This summer we attended a lecture and tour at the Daniel Smith Factory where we discovered the wonders of Daniel Smith colors.
It was amazing to see where the colors started, and how they were developed.  All very top secret recipes we were able to see behind the scenes the process of creating the colors that we use in our palettes and more!  What impressed us most was how permanent the colors are compared to other brands, the intensive testing that goes into each color mix, and the variety of colors Daniel Smith continues to create.  We are so pleased to have been involved in the development of our own color “Neutral Tint” which can be mixed with all of Daniel Smith colors to darken or neutralize the color – doubling the effectiveness of your palette.  Thanks to John and Ron at Daniel Smith for the behind the scenes tour!
We hope you’ll join us at our upcoming Daniel Smith Events.  Click Here for more information!

Prince Edward Island

Anne of Green Gables Home

This was one of our favorite locations on our Quebec to Boston Cruise in May.  We had such a delightful group of artists and enjoyed our painting excursions, onboard workshop, group dinners, and nights of music at the Piano Bar.  Thank you to everyone who joined us.

Make A Vision Board for 2013 – Cindy Briggs

To start out 2013 I really wanted to try making a vision board.  My daughter, Kelsey home from college and I needed a fun project to inspire us for the new year.  We each made something.  I made a vision board with images symbolizing hopes and dreams for the future.  Goals, intentions, whatever you want to call it.

To make a Vision Board all you need is some magazines, a posterboard, and rubber cement, or “Yes” Glue.  Glue Sticks tend to wrinkle the paper.  Start looking through magazines and pull or cut out pictures that you like.  Don’t think about design or anything specific, just tear out some pictures, words, symbols, whatever catches your eye.  Once you have a big pile of images, start laying them out on your board and glue the parts and pieces down.  You will find you have layers of words and images.  You may need to type some words and find some images on the computer.

According to my cousin, Creative Coach – Carol Harrison, she made a vision book in 2012 with 50 pages of intentions for the future.  Within one year 45 of those intentions (goals) came true. Creative people prefer the word “Intention”, it’s less stressful.

Here is my vision board, if you make one send us a .jpg to share.
