"ARTifacts(plural noun): a collaborative project for 2017 documenting adventures in Art."
You will find all the details here
When i read Seth's blogpost about ARTifacts i knew it would be a great opportunity to focus more on my creative work ; through documenting i realized i would probably find momentum more easily and would tend less to procrastinate. And curiously it corresponded to an idea that poped-up in december wich consisted in creating kind of a mixed media book of the year where i would take notes about my creativity.
Couple of weeks later, i abandoned the idea of the book for a box and some old cards; the idea is to use two upcycled cards to create a small file for each month and in this file i will add some pictures of my monthly creations and a tag for journaling.Here are some pictures of the process:
The very beginning, a cardboard box and old cards about plants.
After some layers of black gesso:
The old cards before and after: on the left a card before sanding and on the right a card after sanding.
The front of a card in process: I sanded the card then inked with different colors and collaged squared paper and Washi tape.
This is the inside of the card: i pasted paper i had sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer inks and some Distress inks.
. When i pondered about participating to ARTifacts, i knew i had to find a way to keep going during the whole year, so my rules are clear: "make it simple and use only the techniques i like most" and i think that if i stick at these rules, i shouldn't have to much trouble staying in the flow.
I love this project, THANKS Seth Apter!!!
