The stuff is coming down in earnest now, and it’s beautiful. Easy for me to say, I know, because I don’t have to go anywhere. Sadie may be having a snow-day today–depends on how her “driver”, Jen, feels about the state of the roads.
The weekend was a restful one for me–I puttered with my art supplies, watched a lot of “Pawn Stars”, and thought about my book. Daughter Wendy and I were on the phone for an hour and a half yesterday–we had lots of catching up to do.
As I’ve said before, for me, art is about experimentation. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. It’s fun either way. The ATCs (artist trading cards) I’m making now are mostly dimensional collage–I’m using Angelina fibers, bottle caps, both new and rusted, and lots of ribbons and buttons and, of course, glitter, foil glue and “jewels”. If it’s shiny, I like it. If I can find a way to glaze an image with liquid resin, I do it. I love the old-fashioned look I get by adding a drop or two of amber dye. I’m also recycling old book pages, especially dictionaries.
Today, of course, is a writing day. YES!
And that’s the snowy news from my kitchen table.
