Turney, Cormier, Holmes – adventurous combinations

Susan Turney combined leftover sheets of inked and leafed polymer clay with flower canes and came up with a distinctive new look…very Van Gogh. Susan was working color combinations chosen for a friend and not something she was comfortable with.

Nice things can happen when you venture out of your zone. Thanks to Susan Lomuto for the link. Read about how Heather Powers ventured out.

Dan Cormier and Tracy Holmes have left their comfort zone to good effect too. Their new web site is up and the sidebar is always open for guests and comments. Drop in on them.

The blogs are blooming this spring. There’s another new site opening tomorrow and you’ll have to check tomorrow’s post to find out where.

    Susan’s work is fantastic! It reminds me a bit of Klimt as well as Van Gogh.

        Her beautiful pendants inspired me a lot to play with alcohol ink. And she is a kind woman! Bravo, Susan!

          Brava to Susan for some terrific work! I’m loving where her muse is taking her. Keep it up, girl! 🙂

          And thanks, Cynthia, for the link to Dan’s new site… it was a blast to see his earlier work – it really reflected his sense of humor. While his new work is stunning, I really enjoyed the mix of fine craftmanship and whimsy of his older work.

          Both sites have given my hibernating muse a little nudge. We shall see if it will actually wake her up.
