Day Eighty, March 22nd

Thursday night I went to a class at Paper Source in Cambridge on Polaroid Transfers and Emulsion lifts. It was a lot of fun, although the lifts are a bit fiddly. Here are the two of the better ones.

Day Seventy-two, March 13th

Was busy at work all day, washing out dyed cloth that was in such delectable colors. I am basically done with my 2 quilting projects, a few last minute details and they can be sent off tomorrow. Then I can play with real art stuff for awhile!

I did this digital collage in the afternoon It was gray and rainy outside and I needed a bit of spring.

Still working on my 2 quilting projects. I did make this small effort, a digital collage, during a break at work.

I've been working on two quilting projects which must be finished by Tuesday so I've not had time for anything else. I've been creating art but nothing that I can show yet.

Day Sixty-six, March 7th

As I was gone most of the day and evening, I did a digital collage when I got home and finished it this morning. I used a tintype of a little girl who seems very unhappy. I put her in a dreamy setting to cheer her up.

Day Sixty-three, March 4th

Today we had Open Studios and had a steady stream of people stopping by to chat. I worked on fabric postcards the whole time, three of which I posted.

Day Sixty-four, March 5th

Today I worked on homework for my design class. This 2 week period is about texture. Most of the lessons had you rub, print and draw textures. This picture shows multiple rubbings that form a non-representational design.

This exercise was to take printed text and collage a non-representational design.

This exercise asked you to create texture from letters, which I did on the computer.

Day Sixty-five, March 6th

One the last exercises in the texture chapter: take a black and white photo, cut it up and put it back together, differently, to form a texture.

Today ended up bright and sunny, no snow last night. So, being in a better state of mind, I made 6 fabric postcards. Here are 3 of my favorites.

Tomorrow is Open Studios again at Lowell Fiber Studio in Lowell, MA. We are open from 12:00 - 5:00pm. Please drop by and see us if you are in the area.

Day Sixty-one, March 2nd

Today was sort of a blue day and I couldn't seem to wake up this morning. It's gray and feels like snow, but thankfully it's only supposed to be a dusting. Here is a digital collage I created.
