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.

Checkout Laurie Yendall’s spooktacular Grimsley Village!
I think you’ll love Laurie’s take on the Happy Bat Tavern.  Note the large window looking into the tavern, the cool 3D chimney and the spooky entrance.  She also has some other village pieces in the background.
This is a peak down inside the tavern.  I noticed that many of the characters in her village are from the Halloween Carnival.
Notice the rafters with the bone chandelier.  It looks like she printed the image multiple times then glued it together to make a 3D chandelier.
Next is a creepy camping scene she calls “Hell on Wheels”.  How cool is this!
That must be the pet buzzard sitting on the camper.
To see more pictures of her village, information on how she made the trailer, and other Halloween themed projects, hop over to Laurie’s blog The Rogue Stamper.

You did such a great job on presenting my efforts of making the shops! I had so much fun. I am translating it to Christmas and making a Santa's Workshop the same way. Thanks for the fabulous tutorial and write up!
hugs Karen
