Artifacts with Seth- Journaling with art, inspiration and collage

from the journal Mind Pourings
I'm joining Seth in his "ARTifacts: A Collaborative Project for 2017" to share "art memories", inspirations and more as we venture down the road of art journaling. 
"Journaling has been a source of inspiration and introspection for years. 

These actions of drawing, painting, composing, scrap booking or just jotting down thoughts help guide me through challenges, art making and joys of life."

Inexpensive Epson Printer recommendations found on Amazon

A few folks have asked me about what I recommend for printers. I think Epson is hard to beat.
If you are taking my new workshop- Digital Explorations in Fiber and Mixed Media 
a small-all-in-one inexpensive printer like these will enable you to print at you own speed. 
After all if you were taking a quilting class, would you share your sewing machine?
Dura-Brite or Ultra-Chrome inks are terrific for alternative printing.
These 2 examples can print without a computer using memory cards or a built-in card slot and there are videos on Amazon too!

There are also small portable printers available too. I purchased mine 'used' from Ebay.
For example, Canon Pixma ip110- here

Epson has just come out with a new portable printer-  slightly pricier...   here

Take it from Here

In my book and workshop, Digital Explorations in Fiber & Mixed Media, I explore ways of composing photographs in various ways. 

This original photograph was cropped and stretched to create a long rectangle. I usually enhanced hue, either before layering or after. This is especially true when printing to a somewhat absorbent surface such as fabric and some papers.
Each of the 3 photos were created by exploring what would happen when layered with my painted fabrics. Some photos simply don't work but what a satisfying surprise when it does!

Bringing a printer may be helpful. This workshop focuses on experimentation and construction.

the Best of the New year to all!

“No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. 

There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”

— Martha Graham
