Welcome

Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

Faux Typewriter by Creative Team Member Karol Taylor


Recently, Creative Team Members Karol Taylor and Naomi Towner took a class at the fabulous Paper and Metal Scrappers store in Payson Arizona taught by instructor Gladys Moreno .  This typewriter is the end result.  One of the coolest things about this project is that no actual typewriter pieces were used.
The main construction is from approximately 3/8” thick chipboard, cut out and painted black.  The metal look is achieved by covering a thinner piece of chipboard with silver plumber’s tape.  You can find the tape at hardware stores.  It’s the kind you unroll and peel off the protective paper.  It was then embossing with Tim Holtz clock “Alterations” pocket and colored with a copper patina.
Other items used in the project are old sewing machine parts, Tim Holtz glass knobs and gears, round pipe, wrapping paper tube and other bits of chipboard cut to shape.
Here is the link to Gladys’s Blog Heart of a Gypsy in case you want to check out more of her art.  If you live in Arizona you might what to check out the classes in your local stores to see if she is teaching in your area.
