Please!!! click on Puddleduck Grange for February ARC book review! Thank you very much!
My hunt for Spring took me to the fabric shop! I love the remnant bin , I fill containers
with bargin finds. This purple " mystery" fabric , as it was labeled , and " distant memories" of Spring
screamed " Pick Me! "
I am intrigued with the class " Silent Journalling" found in The Trodden Path art community,
Exploring various techniques. One in particular involved "Creative Paperclay"
Many of you have used this product , as I have admired your various works, but news to me!
and I am a curious duck! after all *****
Dime store note books get me every time! and this one found its way to my creative corner.
Gesso over the cover, then Creative Paperclay! and stamps!! Well , never been the best student,
After many mis-steps and notable errors for next time...
My new art planner has a new look! Fingers covered in clay and paint, I want to cover everything in sight with this magic! Hmm, ?? I've been saving my tea canisters, for what? Not sure, never am.
The bubble I find myself in during these creative frenzies is delightful! The weather is cold, grey
And beyond ridiculous, so instead of crawling under the couch in the fetile position, I fling
Paint, glue, paper and let's NOT forget Glitter! about....
Yesterday I was swirling about, involved in my domestic diva duties, when during my marmalade and toast break, I click on my FB page! Oh those Glamourous Island Gals! Now there is some serious
Rosa Lily ( http://www.rosalily.blogspot.com) liked my Hallowtine swap with Gina and Ashley
Ashley & her 3yr.old son. ( http://www.artsiemix.blogspot.com)
Gina http://www.daydreambeliever.blogspot.com........Highlighted in my previous post**
And suggested " Let's Swap! "
I cherish each artists piece I have been fortunate to swap with over quite a long time now.
I have the most beautiful Doll Dreams portfolio of amazing Dollies !!! So this is where the
" Art Journaling 2014" swap collection is modelled from.....
Each Artists piece ( short tale, poem, affirmation mixed medium illustration or fabric art)
will fit into a Kraft. envelope , 5.75" x 9 1/2". Or...... 14.8 cm X 24.1 cm
You will make an ORIGiN piece 9 X 12 or 8 x 11. ( will need trimming to fit into Kraft Envelope)
for each swap participant
Add your info ( blog, ect..). ..include your Etsy, eBay, or other shop info or service you provide.
End result will be Art that can be made into a journal .....
I plan on doing both sides , maybe adding an ATC size pocket, pouch for business card.
Something that reminds you of ME!....
Future swaps can be added to your journal, and at the end of this year, you can look back,
remembering the art fun you had and the wonderful Virtual Friendships ! created****
Please, commitment to postal deadlines and be aware of postal costs.
This swap will close on March 3rd 2014.
I will email all who signed up on Tuesday March 4th 2014......
Depending on how many we EACH are sending to ...will decide the End Date!
I hope you all join in ....*********************************************************
