Roller Derby is yet another distraction! I am trying to devote 3 to 4 times a week to practice to work towards passing my minimum skills test to scrimmage etc with the team . This is a daunting proposition as I am trying to build endurance and skills on quad skates which require a fair bit of athleticism. It does offer me something so different than the rest of my life however and an outlet which has been amazing and gratifying at the same time in more ways than I can express..
However I must still make art. That is a big must. Currently I am working on a new video/class for the Trodden Path called "Adventures in Creativity" . I felt it would be fun to share my techniques for breaking loose with collage journalling and how it contributes to a kind of artistic stream of consciousness form of expression when I am stuck or don't have space to work big. I don't use pre made collage elements,stamping in my art -and thought it might be interesting for others to learn about my process -and how to construct a simple altered book also .
More to come!:-)
