Glue everywhere. Bits of colorful paper. Inkjet transparencies. Oh, I was in my ATC making element this weekend, all right. I don’t get a cut from any of these people, but in case you’re interested in my favorite suppliers for artistic reasons of your own, here they are:
www.silvercrowcreations.com (these people have really unique things–nichos and shrines, etc., and some great rubber stamps.)
I’m so excited, because I’m finishing “Dylan” this week, and off to London on Saturday. Sally and I will be taking the chunnel over to Paris, too. I’m making an art journal to commemorate the trip–hence a makeup bag full of tiny watercolors, a glue stick, some scissors (in checked baggage, of course), a supply of blank ATCs. What fun this will be, chronicling the day-to-day journies and discoveries. I’m reading “Neuro-Linguistic Programing for Dummies” on the plane. (I know a little about NLP, but a little knowledge is indeed a dangerous thing.) I’ve been honing my Silva skills, too. (If you’re curious, it’s called the Silva Method–run a search and you’ll find it.) I’ve had some interesting successes with this meditation/visualization skill, and I will tell you more when I have some definitive results to report.
Alas, the gloriously messy weekend is over. Time to push up my sleeves and dive into the story.
