This month continues to be an active winter of lingering subzero coldness and a big dose of snowfall here this past week.
Despite feeling a little (or a lot on some days!) of winter fatigue, making my own art (and a cup of hot chocolate or two) has been a great way for me to warm up the frozen day to day landscape surrounding me, as well as inspire wishful thinking about warmer days ahead (40 degrees would be nice!).
So here’s some of my winter weather fatigue art:
….as well as just finished the first week of February’s 3x5s…
I’ve also been material shopping & prepping for the Artist Challenge Coin workshop I’ll be co-facilitating this week at Cuyahoga Community College. It’s been fun to bring together some of my favorite mixed media materials for making these special tokens….
I’ve also had Inchie Art on the brain this past week- starting the process to create more 1×1 inch love, as well as finishing the Inchie book that I started last week for an upcoming 6 Degrees of Creativity workshop featuring this teeny tiny creative goodness…
And finally, an inspiring artful happening to this week was art journaling along with Artsyville’s Aimee Myers Dolich‘s during 21 SECRETS LIVE!. We played with watercolors, old ink pads, and collage. It was so much fun to virtually see Aimee in her creative space LIVE! and hear/see/learn more about the techniques she uses for art journaling, gluebooking, doodling, and more.
What art happenings and activity have you been (or will be!) up to this month?
Here’s to warmer days ahead that continue to be art filled and full of creative goodness!
