Link Love June 21

I wasn't going to do Link Love this week.  Usually I have come across sites all week so when Friday comes I am just about finished.  Not so this week. I had to write the post on Wednesday because of a routine outpatient thing I am doing on Thursday. Didn't know if I wanted to spend the time, but I am glad I did. I found some fun things I know I want to try out.

So you might wonder how I find people. I belong to several art groups on Facebook and sometimes I get links there.  I also go through blog rolls on blogs I follow looking for good links. Or I search out Twitter or Youtube and use their recommendations or search on a subject. The fun thing about all this is I get to find things I like too, that I didn't know about. It is sort of an adventure, a treasure hunt to see what people are doing on the net.  I hope you enjoy looking at these.

This weeks links are  Eric Maisel is a guest in this post, and talks about his new book, Nine Keys to Achieving Your Artistic Goals.

I love the idea of repurposing things especially junk mail. Here is a tutorial on making washi tape with old catalogs and packing tape.  Erin runs wonderful retreats in Glastonbury, England.  I loved looking at some of her art.

Andy Skinner has a tutorial on making alcohol ink backgrounds.  Its very easy to do and you can get stunning results.  I can't wait to try this one.

Angelia's post is all about making poetry tiles to use in your art journals.  I love this idea.  angeliasartjournals.
