I love how this card turned out. It's an old shorthand book page layered with paper towel that had been used as a sop towel for a watercolor project. Added the poppy from a paper napkin and some beeswax. And loved it!
My muse is having difficulties doing big art, so I'm playing around with Artist Trading Cards... specifically for two swaps I'm hosting on atcsforall.com; Recycled Envelope Liners and Recycled Bar Codes. Three of the atcs sitting on my work table have an envelope liner as background, and tea cup is obviously a bar code.
Love the Trader Joe's Yerba Mate tea, and the packaging is so creative!
What does one do when one has no creative energy left?
The last few weeks we've had assorted issues with family illness, and bits of care taking and following up to make sure things are "alright"... because one just does those things for those one loves.
However it has left me tired and having trouble catching back up with myself.
I have all these ideas - things I want to create, and just can't make it happen. There is no energy left for creating, and I feel it's loss.
Another nights sleep; another day of catching back up and perhaps I'll get there.
In other news... Spring has arrived in my garden, evidenced by the lovely yellow dandelions with attending bees....
...and the lovely bleeding hearts, one of my springtime favorites.
