Feature Artist ~ Carolyn Addie

I am so proud to present Carolyn Addie 
a longtime friend and fabulous artisan.

She has a style that is distinct and inspiring.  Her home is filled with original art, thrift store finds, auction items, treasures from her travels and her special flair for creating.   Carolyn has a love for color.  Retired from being a trainer and organizational development coach, Carolyn now spends her time, happily making a mess of her studio, where she creates books, collages, assemblage and lots of jewelry which she sells locally in shops and trunk shows.  She travels far and wide in search of amazing people and places to photograph.  She then turns those photos into books.   

Carolyn has been published numerous times in National magazines.  Never one to slow down, she also teaches water aerobics at her local YMCA in Phoenix, AZ. 

Today we are sharing one of Carolyn's amazing collage books.  May it inspire your creativity!  

Some of my many treasured jewelry pieces by  Occasionally Carolyn.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
