Quotes for Art | August 31

Tammy Tutterow Quotes for Art | Occasionally, in times of worry, I’ve longed to be stylish, but on second thought I say no—just let me be myself—and express rough, yet true things with rough workmanship. Vincent van Gogh

Quotes and great phrases often inspire my art. Sometimes the quote comes first, and sometimes it is the art that puts me on a search for just the right words. Either way, I love including the words of others in my art, letting their words capture the message in the art I make or using it to add meaning to the art. If you are like me and love great words, I hope you will enjoy the week’s selection of Quotes for Art. I hope they inspire you as you carve out time to create art in the coming week.

Tammy Tutterow Quotes for Art | For the great doesn’t happen through impulse alone, and is a succession of little things that are brought together. Vincent van Gogh

Tutorial | Stencil Stamping on Fabric

Tammy Tutterow | A Wonderful Life Art Banner

Happy, happy Tuesday!  You know, it is really funny how projects take on their own life.  I was still in the Layering Stencil and fabric mood yesterday.  I wanted to try the Gothic Layering Stencil with Distress Paint on fabric and envisioned doing something very fall-ish.  I didn’t really end up with fall, but I love where it went instead.
