Fashion Chunky Book Swap 2017

Each year our ATC group does a Chunky book swap. For this we each have to make a page for every person who signed up. This year that meant making 10 pages each. The theme was 'Fashion'. As always we had a great turn out for the afternoon and wonderful pages to trade.

Art Deco ATC's

I just had a great afternoon with my ATC group. We did our annual chunky book swap and of course our month ATC swap. I don't quite have the Chunky book photo's ready for you so I'll start by sharing the ATC's. This month's ATC theme was ArtDeco. What an interesting style to study and make cards with. How fun are these!

March ATC's, Mandalas

Have you ever made a Mandala? 
I think before this ATC trade I had but they were basic and I didn't really like the outcome. I have to admit when I found out that we were going to be doing Mandalas for one of our ATC trades I did a little research. 
The dictionary gave me this:
Oriental Art. a schematized representation of the cosmos, chieflycharacterized by a concentric configuration of geometric shapes, each of which contains an image of a deity  or an attribute of a deity.
And Wikipedia gave me this:
mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल, lit, circle) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe.[1] In common use, "mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.
After watching a few how to videos I decided to start with a few lines to guide me while creating my Mandala instead of doing it freehand. I was quickly taken with it and did found I couldn't stop at just one.
It was so interest to see the variations or Mandalas in our group.

If you haven't tried making Mandalas before I highly recommend it. Since starting this I have made numerous ones of all sizes and colours. I think this is something I will continue to do for a long time. They are so fun and meditative to do.

Happy Creating.

Imagination is Boundless workshop

   In the last year or two I have been exploring the creation of dimensional canvases. I often call them altered art because so many thing on them are altered from their original purpose. Almost nothing is sacred and cannot be used on a piece of altered art. So now I enjoy teaching my process of creating these canvases to others. 
   Yesterday I was in the company of 3 wonderfully creative ladies while teaching them the Imagination is Boundless canvas workshop. Just see what a wonderful job they did.

Now I'm off to finish the canvas I started during the workshop and maybe start a few more projects floating around in my head. Wish me luck!

Keep Creating.
