The rain and cold continue but I am really loving staying in doors playing with many creative endeavors. One is the art journal I started at the beginning of the year. I did intend to write in it but it has evolved into a place to play with collage and mixed media techniques. From several resources I made up a list of techniques (packing tape transfer, rubber stamp, etc), themes (ocean, winter, etc.) and other ideas that would provide a jump start on each page. I printed them out and then cut them into strips and put them in a jar. I fish around in the jar and pull out the various ideas - about 3 to 4 - and begin playing. So, here are some of my results, enjoy!
