Today we have a treat. This is not a usual Bella style but it is a very special style designed by an extremely special artist. I have been an admirer of Danielle Donaldson’s work for about 3-4 years now.. Have been stalking her LOL (I know that shocks you) for us to work together. She was tied up in certain commitments and once those were over .. I WAS ALL OVER HER and wouldn’t take no for an answer! Danielle is one of the most brilliant water colorists around. Her style is ethereal.. dreamy.. I just can’t explain it. And her sense of humor? OVER THE TOP. You will love her. I have taken every one of Danielle’s classes at Jeanne Oliver’s site . Danielle is a wonderful teacher.. and her collage style and just her whole vibe is so awesome and cool. Trust da BELLA.
Here is a little bio on Danielle.. isn’t she adorable?
Artist Danielle Donaldson has walked a creative path for as long as she can remember. Her love of art began, as most young souls do, with a big box of crayons and a stack of coloring books. Over time, she focused her artistic efforts in watercolor and graphite drawing techniques and eventually received her degree in Graphic Design. Her love of fine art paired with her skills as a graphic designer have provided her with a an uncommon pairing of intuition and practicality. Her use of big color palettes and delicately drawn details allow her to spin the ordinary into imaginative and balanced compositions. She continues to grow as an artist by fully embracing the creative process in all she does and with each story she tells. She thoroughly enjoys sharing her process and imagination through online classes, in-person workshops, social media and in her book, creativeGIRL: Mixed Media Techniques for an artful life.
I am so so proud to have her with us!
I am stamping all of her stamps all over my planner.. depending on my moods.. on cards.. frames for gifts.. her words and her images are so dreamy. We have 10 in total.. and I can tell you we will be working a lot with them. Danielle even promised an online class on how she plays with them! WOOHOO.
Danielle’s first line with stamping bella are her SUPERHERO girls.. While they may not look like superheroes, you would be surprised at the powers they wield. Like REALLY surprised.
In every package of Danielle’s stamps there is a little story describing the exact powers that each of these girls have. Each of these have their own story.. LIKE WE DO. Funny how our lives can parallel a line of stamps 🙂 I told you .. I feel like my stamps are HUMAN.. and clearly so does Danielle :)..
I will show you one example of the little “note” that is included in the package.. the rest will be a cute little surprise that you can take and put in your planners to remind yourselves that you too can have these special powers. Ready? Here we go!
You will notice that ALL these images have been colored in by Danielle Donaldson herself 🙂
Danielle’s vision was to have a larger image.. a smaller one facing her and 2 sentiments.. both depicting a superpower and mood. Just like the stamps do. LOVE!
and here’s the little treat you will find in your package describing her powers :)… I like to call them “POWERCARDS”
Isn’t Danielle brilliant and hilarious like we all are? me thinks yes!
Now let’s see Sandiebella’s sample using almostella.. A frame! Honestly if I had this on my desk, I would stare at it all day and it would inspire me and just make me happy.. HINT HINT SANDIE! Copics, watercolors, paint.. whatever your preference, I think these stamps are awesome to try different techniques!
these girls are odd.. are whimsical.. I think they are at the same level of how I feel about unicorns LOL.. Magical!
