Sorry...no crafty blog of the day today...
I did want to share the small things I'm working on lately, thought.
Being ill has kept me out of my craft studio for the most part over the past month...that would explain the lack of crafty posts. I suffer from panic/anxiety disorder, depression, diabetes, and on and on, blah, blah, blah. Well, they've all had me in their grip lately and it's really done a job on my creativity, as well as my energy.
But, I'm still thinking of things and have found that small projects are things I can accomplish, even with limited energy so I give you: ATCs...Artist Trading Cards. These are my creations in a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" form.
They can be done in any medium...paint, pencil, paper, collage (my favorite!), ink, fabric, and on and on...the only real rule is that they must be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and on a stiff enough backing to withstand whatever treatment you're going to give them. I use heavy watercolor paper or chipboard.
I have found this is a good way to be creative without feeling like I am bound to my studio for hours on end. Plus, it's fun.
If you're interested, I have joined a web-group called ATCsforAll that trades ATCs, so come join in on the fun. (I can loaf the 'net all the time...that takes NO energy.)
I hope you're all doing well and crafting up a storm.
Peace & Love,
