The Venn Diagram and Other Things I Never Thought I'd blog About...

As you may have noticed, I'm a wee bit of a right brainer. Basically - finger paints ring my bell.

So I don't typically talk about magnetic induction and Venn diagrams EXCEPT when they mean something to my art or life. As a matter of fact, magnetic induction charges your cell phone, and some Venn diagrams can explain.. well - what we should all be doing. So today - Venn rules.

Think about this for a sec. Look closely at "Learn to say No" and "Learn to Monetize". Feel free to discuss in the comments.

Today was fun. Called my beloved talk radio twice. Had a fun brainstormy meeting at work.

However, I also realized that I completely failed you, which is weighing heavy on my heart!!! You need free stamps, right? 

I was part of a challenge that was published in this month's Technique Junkie newsletter by Pat Huntoon. You may be a subscriber. Pat is one of the very first people I connected with when I started stamping, and her technique service is amazing. This month, she featured our own insanely talented Irene - the artist behind the Doodle Factory stamps I love so much. Irene invented an impressionist technique that wowed us all, and it wowed Pat too, so it's the technique of the month! Starving Artistamps is celebrating this wow with a huge stamp giveaway!! All the new DF releases!!!
BUT - There are only three more days left for you to enter this contest (my fault)!!! And right now there are only a few entries, so your chances are good. Time's a wastin! Click here for deets.
For my card in this challenge, I did a spoof of Edvard Munch's The Scream. 
My apologies, but mine is cuter ;)
How perfect was Yapples for this???

I hope you're having a fabby Friday. 

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)

Want to see my other blog?


  1. yeah, yours IS cuter! Love the name irene- might be biased since the brownie girl's middle is irene. ALL IRISH_ ALL THE TIME- carson mckeever and kelly irene- they are my inspiration and come to think of it, maybe MY style. Have a great weekend, Kids!

  2. Oh, no contest, yours is way cuter. You could not have chosen a better character for the card.
    I so love this one.


    Lisa A.

  3. This is perfect, Lydia!! Love it!!

  4. Yep - love yours!

    As for the Venn thing - waaaaaaaay too early on a Saturday to engage THOSE brain cells! But at second glance, I do get it. I need to get ready for my Saturday market, and then I have to prep for tomorrow's stamp camps, and then I'll need to REST, but I'll be back eventually!

  5. I agree with everyone else yours is much better!!!

  6. Yours is definitely cuter! It actually made me LOL as I scrolled down! What a great idea to use "real art" as inspiration for a stamping project. TFS!

  7. I do like yours better, Lydia. Much cuter. As far as the Venn thing, I would love to be in the Hooray section, but I'm not, I need to spend some time working on the Learn to say no section. that one is my downfall. I have subscribed to Technique Junkies Newsletter for a couple of years now and I love it. Pat does a wonderful job of pulling together some talented ladies to make up these
    techniques. thanks for all you do, and isn't it Caturday?

  8. Somewhere in the great beyond, Edvard Munch is smacking his forehead, saying "Why didn't I just...." :) LOVE your card, Lydia!

  9. This is beyond awesome're so innovative! Maybe you should do a whole series...the Mona Lisa next?

  10. Even Munch has got to see the cuteness in yours. Poor soul, he is probably flipping in his grave with jealously.

  11. hehe, loved your reinterpretation of "the scream". ALSO, I saw you featured on the pages of the ModernCat blog, you famous lady, you!
