Welcome Our New Guest Designers

First of all I'd like to thank all of you for participating in our Designer Call this past month. We had so many qualified applicants that I actually haven't gotten in touch with all of you yet. It was a joy looking at all your photos and blogs and etsy stores and flicker sites and, and, and...well, you get the picture. So without further adieu let me introduce you to Art Glitter's Guest Designers for September, October and November:

Violette Clark

I am a mixed media artist, author, designer, workshop instructor and creative catalyst. I live in beautiful B.C. Canada with my partner Mr. G (aptly named for his tolerance of glitter) in a purple magic cottage. The cottage sports a huge papier mache dragonfly drenched in glitter!

My first book "Journal Bliss: Creative Prompts to Unleash your inner Eccentric" is all about Visual Journaling. My passion is to teach others to embrace who they are through the vehicle of their creativity. I do this mainly through classes on Visual Journaling (among other mixed media projects), in my online classes and in my blog. My home, glittery van and art have been featured on numerous TV shows.

You can check out my blog at and sign up for my newsletter here (get free creative playcards!) Watch my youtube videos here:

Jan Hennings

I've been a card maker for the last fifteen years and have branched out into scrapbook layouts, altered item, gifts and love making 3-D projects. One of my favorite things is to find an item I can recycle, reuse and rethink. I'm a wife and a mom of seven children. I have a special place in my heart for kids and serve on the Board of Director's for a Child Advocacy Organization.

My work has been published in Stampington and Company (Gallery Magazine) and upcoming publication in Bel Armoire Magazine. You can also find my art in, Ready, Set, Create! and Scrapbook News and Review.

I currently have projects in Spellbinder's Pendant Contest where my purse was listed and an Honorable Mention and on the Bind-It-All blog where my Summer Fun Album was chosen as a winner in their contest.


Lisa Kettell

Ever since Lisa could hold a crayon, she has been creating a world of fantasy,
now in Altered Art Circus, she shares her unpredictable, imaginary world with you.

Lisa’s various artistic mediums have been fueled by her love of history, her world travels and her inimitable imagination. She shares her creativity in The Faerie Zine, a zine she founded in 2006 that is dedicated to the unlimited possibilities in the world of art and to building friendships within the artist community.

Her artwork has been published in newspapers, magazines, books, and on websites. She enjoys teaching workshops and is currently in the process of licensing a new line of products. Her imaginary world is based in NJ. Here is her website:

Thank you for helping us spread the sparkle. We look forward to what you will be sharing with us!

And I'd like to give one more big thank you to Laura Bray, Linda Hess and Nancy Ward for being my first set of designers. You are such creative women and wonderful to work with. Thank you for putting up with me while we ironed out the bugs of this process.

You can always find Laura, Linda and Nancy on our Guest Designers page. Be inspired!
