Women and Creativity ATC’s

Among a beach day and family Sunday I put together a set of ATC’s this weekend for the women and creativity ATC exchange.They are still looking for artists to trade so if you up to it try and make a few ATC’s and join in.I did a green acrylic wash a little gold spray.For me this speaks to the evergreen state in which I live.The trees are hand carved in foam and printed on pages of my reused journal.I washed it with coffee and iridescent copper then printed with hybrid ink-from a vendor at Urban Craft Uprising.

I have know idea where these little pieces of art will end up but I hope the bring a smile to someone’s day somewhere.



Arboretum Fun and a Prize

WP_20160215_07_45_43_ProThe annual garden build for the arboretum was fun.Old faces new plants and a bit of a challenge with the lighting set up but all came together to produce an award winning garden.

This is an early set up image upon my arrival on Monday morning.Winning images are available on the Arboretum Foundation Facebook page.

Most of the plants will be for sale at the arboretum post show sale so on Monday I’ll be helping to repot,remove and take the space back to it’s convention center origin oh and remove some of that moss !
