Today I got to spend the day with a good friend, talking, laughing, and creating a little. My friend Ann recently went to an art retreat centered around calligraphy and created some pendants with paper. She showed me how she made them and let me dive into her jar of paper scraps to make my own. I'm definitely going to make some more with gelli scraps. Here are the two that I made today, first the back, then the front.
Last month I read an article on Artists Network by Tonia Jenny on making cool bowls with paper clay. About once a month I have an art play date with my friend Ann and last month we made the bowls but we had to let them are dry for over a week so today we finished painting them. Had a bit of trial and error with the colors but I like the end results.
By day I work with computer software at a law firm and by weekend I'm exploring my creative side. You know, mixed in with all the other stuff you have to do on the weekend like the laundry. I love reading blogs and seeing all the beautiful artwork. I love how encouraging and friendly the community is. Please feel free to leave a comment even if it is just to say hi.
