I Didn’t Know It But I Was Starting A New Series

April Is Almost Here…

Project Friday: Working With Project Boundaries To Stretch Creatively

Using Rubber Stamp Inks in Visual Journals

Left: Page from my 2015 Fake Journal. I used a 6 x 6 inch square, wire-bound journal with grey Stonehenge paper. All the pages were masked and labeled with the date and related title in the same way. This image was a response to "Focus on Text." There is some heat embossing in this image […]
