Today, I finished an artist book that is kind of like a junk journal but more like a more "finished" book, using pre-printed pages from artist Tim Holtz. You can use any paper in your stash but you need double-sided pages to be the most successful.
I've always been drawn to Japanese art. Some of the art is very sparse and some is very detailed like the drawing above.'
Here is a different version of my Rolodex Book Series.
I love making my own tools for mark-making.
I love board books so I decided to make my own.
When I started exploring fiber art 12 years ago, it took me 5 years to find my unique "voice". That included a LOT of experimenting and to see how I could work in this medium and enjoy every minute. There were days when I just got frustrated and hated everything I made. But I kept on working.
Before I left for Florida, I signed up to take a course from Alisa Burke. It is called "Ocean Alchemy". I thought that would be a perfect fit. Also, it was only $15 for 30 short videos. A bargain!
I've never been a good illustrator or a person who could draw something from nature. but I'm actually going to try next week because of this photograph I took on the beach.
This is definitely not a beach photo.
I'm on vacation. Finally.

I am a mixed media artist and love color and texture!
