Twisted Tuesdays - Artist Quotes

One of the parts I envisioned for my book, Totally Twisted, very early on related to the artists that would contribute their beads to my projects. I had this vision of quotes from the artists floating in fantastic fonts across the pages where their beads call home. Being who I am, I asked each artist to tell me something, anything, that related to how they use color.

Here is what my 8 lovely contributors said:

cassie quote
sarah quote
melanie quote
libby quote
anne quote
donna quote
carter quote
jill quote

Unfortunately, these wise words were edited out of the book due to length restrictions. The book, as is, ended up being 20+ pages longer then anticipated. I am thrilled that I could share their words here though. Thank you Cassie, Sarah, Melanie, Libby, Anne, Donna, Carter, and Jill for helping me to make Totally Twisted such a visual feast! I love your beads, ladies!!

I love Jill Symons quote.

I love all the quotes -- such interesting and unique perspectives -- but Jill's stands out for me. :)

Have a color-full day!

That is brilliant! I love all of these talented artists. You forgot one though......YOU! Your thoughts on color should be in there as well! I have been sitting with your book open on my bead table for the past week. I have made bang-gals and lariats and other necklaces. When I get them done I will photograph and share them with you! YOU are my inspiration! Thank you.

Enjoy the day!

Thanks Ladies!

Erin, silly, I don't need to be quoted here. You have all my words in the book!! This is what was missing :)

But, while we are on the topic, if one were to quote me, what would be the "thing" I have said that sticks in your head?

These quotes on colour are fantastic - too bad they didn't end up in the book as planned. Thanks for sharing them here!

Kerry recently I taught a class at Blue Moon in Austin TX. One of the students had your book. We all ohhh and ahhh over it and discussed how it was one of our favorite books. Everyone loved the layout, designs, how tos, and the general look of the book. It was so refreshing and new.
I was honored to be asked to be in your lovely book, and hope you will think about doing a second!

Very nice. I especially enjoy the statement from Jill.

Is it okay to share these quotes on our Facebook page?

Kerry said...

Sure! You can share!! If you could just site Totally Twisted at the source, that would rock.

What an awesome post, Kerry. Really too bad they were cut out of the book...I'm a quote-reading kinda person! I loved reading the different artists' perspectives.
