I have done a little bit of art, some gardening, some housework, but no blogging. My health is dramatically improved, my stamina and interest in life in general is up, and my desire to just sit at the computer or read has almost evaporated!
Here are a few photos of my projects. I will do a second post in a bit with photos from the aquaponics garden, which is flourishing now that the fish are feeding it! :)
This is a little heart I did for a friend on Instagram who has made a canvas with 144 squares on it and she asked for people to send hearts, one for each square. So, I made this one for her. It is a gelli print with some glass bead gel and silk flowers. I named it "love letter" :)
This next piece is a new size for me--I have done one other piece in the 4X4" size. This is for a Swap-bot swap in the Mixed Media group. It was a challenge, and you were required to use at least three elements from a list of media.
Next, I worked on another journal. Gelli-print backgrounds, glass bead gel through stencil, book page image (rabbit) stamped tissue paper, and punched images. The flower was the last remaining one I had in my stash and it just really asked to be included. :)
I recently did a new set of gelli-prints, and this was one of the envelopes I created. I was pretty pleased with the results of this session. Each time I think I am getting a bit more creative and I like the results better.
This last piece is the first of two art journal pages I am sending to an IG friend in Scotland. Just a bunch of scraps from my stash, and a little bit of imagination. I am going to have a hard time sending this one off...which could be why I have been so slow about making the second page! Hopefully I will get that done (along with a bunch of other projects) in the next day or two.
That's all for now. Coming soon: Aquaponics update, garden update, and reorganization post for my studio. I still have a few letters to reply to, and I know other art journals are on their way, so it will be a busy spring!!
