Bumbleweedz: Art that makes you smile!

Art by Dara Barth

I come across lots of very awesome art on etsy and I am always amazed by all the incredible talent. I am not sure when I discovered Dara Barth's art but I remember that I was very impressed by her artistic style. Her art really does make me smile.  Her mark making appears expressive and there is movement and energy that translates into her art. The colors are vivid and capture a child like vision.  What more can I say........her art is absolutely amazing. Please do check out her etsy shop and take a look at all the incredible art.

Traci Bautista is a mixed media artist, designer and teacher. I first discovered Traci Bautista's work in 2012 when I was just beginning to learn about mixed media art.  Recently I have taken a few of her online classes and am just loving them.

Justina Blakeney

Artist, Designer, Writer and Bohemian

I first discovered Justina Blakeney on Skillshare ( an online website offering online classes). The class was on interior decorating and I absolutely loved her interesting and creative way of styling interiors. As I began to follow her on social media, I was inspired by her eclectic style and bohemian creations. She also uses a lot of flowers both in her styling and art and I simply love this since I also love flowers!
Justina is currently doing the Faces of Foliage project and I am loving this idea. She creates faces out of foliage and flowers and  they are gorgeous. If you follow her on instagram you can see a gallery of the faces and you can even do some yourself and tag your photos with #FacetheFoliage.
She is super inspiring and an amazing and talented artist!
