I am inspired by color. My eye is drawn to anything that combines many colors . . . a box of crayons, a rainbow, a bright fall leaf, or a wild and crazy fabric. They all get my attention, and make me smile.
For me, art is play . . . and I do love to play! LOL I have been having fun making paper for the last couple of years, and I never get tired of this kind of creativity. I am always experimenting with new paints, new colors, and new tools for getting the layers of paint on the paper. Each piece is unique, and each one makes me happy. My colorful layered papers seem to make others happy, too.
I use my papers to decorate calendars, file folders, weekly planners, composition books, sketch books, note pads, and journals. This year, for our show I will have both lined and unlined journals. I will also have some more of my colorful wool felt balls for sale; they look so warm and cozy in a clear glass container!
The other thing I have been doing lately is doodling . . . more fun! I hope to incorporate some of my doodles into items for the show, perhaps some cards or bookmarks.
