Great video, next best thing to doimg a workshop with you.

Debbie said...

OMG Dyan, the video of you demoing is fantastic, you are so easy to watch and not flustered at all...mind you with such fantastic products no wonder.
I have been looking on Kate Crane's blog recently and am really starting to move over to the type of art you two do. I am visiting you at Art from the Heart (again) in March and will hopefully have enough dosh to have a good spend on your new dylusions products. Well done you, the range looks stunning, I can see how hard you have worked, and I hope it pays off big time for you you deserve it. Debbiexx.

Sara Jansen said...

I am NOT a patient person. I must look at the websites twice a day. I HAVE TO HAVE those dies and stencils (and of course the rest of the stamps and sprays....) Oh my - you're style is soooooo full of fun. I am envious of all the people who can actually go to your shop, or take your classes. Honestly, between you, and Kaz, and Kate I just want to move to Great Britain. Thanks for showing us all your photos, coats, videos, stamps, stencils and sprays. Are they HERE yet???!!

Sue said...

I am a new fan across the pond, Dyan! I am in love with your bright vibrant colors and funky images and stencils.

I attended StampFest in Clearwater FL last weekend and got to meet Ted Cutts and got your Travelling Travis stamp set. (wanted them all, but have a budget you know!) I thought you might lile to see what I did for my first project.

The video was great - even if that poor woman looked a little bit flummoxed at times.

Jacquie Parry said...

dawnaclark said...

This is my first time seeing you and your work, and I have to tell you I was actually sitting and smiling as you did your demo. The colors, the energy, the creativity in motion was a joy to watch! I will definitely be keeping my eye out for your products. You are just inspiring to watch...makes me want to get my fingers full of ink! thank you!

What kinda book do you use for your artwork? I can see it doesn't fold up and wrinkle as much as mine does. And its easier to fold out and keep flat while working on it.

Cecilia said...

Dyan!! I'm still feeling your wonderful colors and the inspiration you gave, and that I somehow has found my calling after seeing your demo at Bikuben on Thursday!
I'll take you up on your comment about making art journaling pages that I'll show you when you come back in May - cause I'll be there with bells on!
Thank you for sharing your love and inspiration!
Love Celia

Hi Dyan ~

Just a note to let you know that I’ve nominated you for a Versatile Blog Award. Here’s a link to my blog post that talks about it:

http://laurejanus.blogspot.com/2012/02/versatile-blog-award.html

There’s also a link to the Versatile Award site that explains the premise behind the award. I picked your blog because I always leave with something I didn’t have before, whether it’s inspiration, validation, information, or a smile. Sometimes all of the above! I always read your posts regardless of how many posts I have in my reader or how tired I may be. Thanks for your contribution to the blog world, your words make a difference to me and many others, I’m sure. You’re welcome to choose your own favorite blogs to award but please don’t feel obligated to do so. People are busy and this isn’t meant to be one more thing to add to the to-do list. Just know that your blog brightens my day!
