Doesn't this look like a chevron pattern?
Wayne and I are avid movie watchers and collectors.
This is just a bit of our DVD collection.
I just had to take a photo to share that you can find inspiration in anything.
I have a bit of a….not sure if I want to call it a rant, but some may consider it that.
Before I begin, I just want to say that most of the comments I receive on my YouTube and on my blog are all so positive. They put a smile on my face and warmth in my heart…they really do.
But maybe 2% of my comments are negative.
When I get a negative comment, I just brush it off.
Or sometimes I will ask the poster, what they meant by that comment. Because we all know that words typed out can be perceived differently then they were meant to be.
I received a comment on "My Copic Markers and how I store them" video.
Here was the comment:
"Wow. All these stampers on youtube and wasting money on copics. Stamping is not an art so get out of her. Stamping shows you have no artistic ability so you rely on ink and print to do something."
They went on to say how we are not artists as Di Vinci and such didn't use stamps.
We are wasting our time and money on these markers as they were meant for artists, not for us stampers.
I left a really good response, but when I went back to copy their comment and my reply they were both deleted.
I only got to copy the small part of their comment as it was still in my e-mail.
Here is my response … or at least as close as I remember replying as it was deleted as well.
"I have never claimed to be an artist for one thing.
But, Who are you to say what is art and who is an artist.
What is an artist?
Someone who can draw, paint, sculpt, quilt, work with wood or a doll maker.
Are these not artists?
How do you know I don't do some or all of these?
What about the colourists that colour the drawn images at Disney, I would consider them artists.
Have you not seen how beautiful some of these stamped images are coloured? Have you not noticed how much detail is in the shading.
On another note, who are you to judge us crafters on what we spend our money on?
I say if it gives us pleasure or joy, and no one gets hurt, all the power to us."
So my question to you, all my Crafty Friends, what do you consider to be art or an artist.
And now to give you a smile.
The wonderful life of our kitty Luna ;)
Hope you all had a crafty and artistic Day :)
