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.
Well, back out to shovel some more, then play with paper clay.
