I have lots to blog about because lots has been happening. Last week I went on a quilt retreat. I didn’t quilt very much because I usually do artsy things. Do you receive the Cloth Paper Scissors Today email in your inbox? Well, you should. I got one last week with a project from Pam Carriker. She has just come out with a new book called Art At The Speed Of Life. I was interested in doing the project on my retreat. And especially since I have just finished a 4 week online course with Pam.
Here is how mine turned out:
This journal page started out using some pictures cut from magazines. Then I began to draw over them with graphite pencil, adding color with oil pastels since I didn’t have any liquid paint with me. I used poster paint markers and other pens to finish. Not the greatest, but not too bad for the first try, I think. I also used some techniques and ideas from the journaling class.
Here are Susan and Robin from the retreat in our basement workspace. They kept a secret from me for about 3 months…the secret was that Robin, who now lives in North Carolina, would be joining us. I was SO glad she got to come. It was very good to see her again.
Our motley crew:
Yesterday, I hung an exhibit at the North Park Library in Evansville. It is on Koehler Drive off of First Avenue. Stop by and see it…I think it looks pretty nice!
