I try to start out every day with an hour of art (no matter how early I have to get up). Some folks like to work at night....way into the wee hours....but I always feel like I have to start my day with art if at all possible.
|First off, a mug of very strong, black, hot coffee and a book or magazine about art or art techniques.|
(This book has been around a while and is called The Pressed Plant - it is very nice).
I like to browse UpperCase and Somerset Studio magazines.
|But, Sundays are for the SF Chronicle and the New York Times.....|
|Oh! And happy T day to Elizabeth and the T gang. I am invited to join in this week and I hope you enjoy the beverage of choice here -- cappuccino.|
Elizabeth - Altered Book Lover
|Looking at some cyanotypes...and getting ready to g to the studio and make things.....and there are so many things I want to make....|
|For example, I've been into bird envelopes these days....and bird rolodex cards.....|
|.......yes, and even more bird envelopes.....|
|Which, in turn, lead me to making altered book pages with birds and a teacher's notes from a bird class....|
|Sometimes I just make collage cards from things sitting around on my studio table....like this...|
|Considering I just went to the fabulous Vintage Paper last weekend and came home with lots of vintage paper there is always something sitting around I can use to make some something....25-cent snapshots...|
