Great day to be inside making art!

This weekend has the potential for the greatest snow accumulation in a single event in Washington DC since 1922!  It looks like we might get 2 feet or more.  Luckily it is quite cold so the snow isn’t too heavy.  We are hoping to minimize the potential for power outages.

It is a great day to be inside drinking tea and making art.  This afternoon, I will be playing with paper clay – a moldable, air drying medium.  This is part of my current goal to work through Misty Mawn’s book Unfurling, and lead the discussion for the Art Journal Emporium Book Club.  I am doing a chapter a week and blogging on the AJE site.  Volunteering to lead the book club for January and February means I can’t get lazy, I am pushing myself to make several projects from each chapter.  I am having fun so far!

These are the stamps I carved last week:

Then I made an Artist Trading Card (ATC) using one of the stamps, deli paper printed with a Gelli plate, an image from Tumblefish Studios, and words from Tim Holtz.
