Fabric Paper- Sisters 7=4
A fun day was had by all 4 of "Sisters 7",, due to circumstances 3 could not make it that day. Julie, Kathleen, Vivian, and the unseen photographer Anita were present to discuss the book, "The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women"
We had a lively discussion related to Chapter 5.. Committing to Self- Focus. The reading is a catalyst to discussions on how we sabotage our selves by procrastinating for various reasons about putting our art work first.
We had a salad luncheon, and went on to make fabric paper.. Kathleen, is very good at pre-planning what she would like to see, Julie also had her idea set.. and Anita, made white on white using white rice paper. I tore random paper, will show mine later, when I take a photo.. It will be fun to see how we incorporate the fabric paper into our art work.
I was browsing through a variety of sites today and came upon one on Sketch books and was fascinated by the variety of ideas, and people from all over the world that are participating..
It is different from the Sketch book Challenge I am observing here in the States.. Yes, procrastinating about participating.. But fascinated by the wonderful artists and their sharing.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
