Meet Artist Misun Holdorf

Meet my friend, Misun Holdorf, phenomenal artist. 
I recently stopped by her studio, Studio 16B in Spanish Village. 

Misun describes her work as Impressionistic. Using mainly oil paint and palette knives, she has perfected the Impasto technique which creates an almost 3-D effect, making each piece come to life. The colors and the deliberate texture are thoughtfully applied to each piece, resulting in the viewer being drawn in and whisked away to a magical place. Misun offers a unique perspective on landscapes and wildlife, drawing from her previous island life for tropical inspiration. You need to see her work in person to really appreciate the beauty of her technique. Stop by Studio 16B in Spanish Village to see her at work, or visit her website to view or purchase available pieces.

If you have never been to Spanish Village, it is nestled in the heart of Balboa Park in San Diego, California. It was build for the 1935 Exposition and remains one of the gems of the region. Spanish-style cottages have become working art studios, where painters, sculptors, jewelers, photographers, and crafters create and showcase their work. Artwork is for sale and admission is free! The day I visited, there was a musician in the center of the colorful courtyard playing live music. Enjoy a great cup of coffee as you peruse the village.

Peace, Love and Beauty, 


Beautiful GREENERY - Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year

We have had an unusual amount of rain here in Southern California lately. I look around at the area hillsides and they are lush and the perfect shade of green. Or should I say, Greenery?

Pantone is known world-wide as the authority on color. Whether you are a graphic designer, fashion designer, or an artist, you have probably looked to Pantone for accurate color information from time to time. This year, Pantone chose a beautiful yellow-green as this year's Color. They named it Greenery.

From Pantone's website:

...Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings...A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

Head on over to the Pantone website and check out all the great color information, color palettes, and really helpful tips for any creative. 
Goals. :)
Here are a few examples of the color of the year IRL (in real life).

Greenery is the perfect shade of Spring Green. I think it's fresh! I, for one, am ready to pursue my personal passions, aren't you?

Repurposing Christmas Cards Into Gift Tags

Having trouble parting with your beautiful collection of Holiday Cards you received this year?

Repurpose them into pretty package Gift Tags! This way, you can enjoy the lovely designs again next year, while saving money on at least some of that pricey gift wrap.

First, pick the prettiest, shiniest, and boldest cards from those you received. Or, pick them all. Depending on how many gifts you give each year, you may not need them all.

Next, clip, cut, and chop them up, strategically using the designs on each card to create multiple shapes and sizes for your new Gift Tags. Then, use a hole punch to add a hole for the ribbon or string.

Finally, add string or ribbon (I used a slip knot) so they can be easily attached to your gifts next year!

Have you tried this Christmas Craft or others for recycling or repurposing pretty things for the Holidays? Please leave a comment below and share your ideas!

Peace, Love, and Beauty,Jodi
