Design Team Inspiration


Aude:  Hello. here is my "bat" tag in honor of my mixed media idol, did you recognize her? Our dear Finnabair!

Aga: Don't look on the others - be your own IDOL! A card full of colors with motivating sentence made of our sponsor paper collection AB Studio 'Love on top' 

Asia:  Who as a child did not dream of being an IDOL? I wanted to sing, and you?


Dana:  This artist trading card is a companion piece to a design I created last year using a pop art image and Billy IDOL song lyrics. I used the same song, but different lyrics, and a different image, for this card. It was fun trying a variation on a theme using different mediums and techniques.

Heike:  You`re still my IDOL". Salvador Dali one of my favorite ARTIST. I created a TAG with a stamp image of Dali. I used Deco Art paint and 13@rts Acrylic Ink.


Elle:  I made an ATC based around the idea of cats being worshipped as gods (as they should be lol).  I used a piece of watercolour paper, painted with metallic acrylic, and then I drew an Egyptian cat god (Bastet) and put it on a pedestal of watercoloured offcuts in lapis blue to continue the theme. 


I made a tag using the quote, "Luck is the IDOL of the idle". I used a tissue palmistry hand from ArtStacks as my feature. It's so cool!


Sharon: I love all things vintage and couldn't wait to use these 2 fashion models from the ArtStacks' "Dressmaker" Stack. James Darren is pictured here on TV starring as the women's idol.
