End of february, it's time for a post about ARTifacts, Seth Apter's project that will last during the whole year.
I am done with the box that will hold the files i use to document my creative life . Last month i showed you the first steps of the transformation of the cardboard box, here is the result:
Front :
I used handmade stamps and metallic paints. Below, the file and the tag where  i write about my creative experiences of the month.
 First, january file .Front cover

The january tag 

For february i used the same system of file and tag, but i added to the file some photos i made during the month; some landscape pix and others of the sewing project of february, small hearts i cut in white fabric.

For the technics, i used collage, Masking Tape, inks and metallic paints.

February tag
I really enjoy documenting my creative work and i noticed it  has an impact on my inspiration and i tend to procrastinate less since i began to work at this project.
Seth Apter posted on his blog photos the participants sent him. If you would like to see the pictures it is here. You won't see my work, i haven't sent him any pictures yet because the box was not finished.
I am a bit of a slow worker.
May you be peaceful and at ease.

  1. What a beautiful work, or shall I say, works, for each element of your project is lovely unto itself. Your handmade stamps are so effective in metallic contrasted with black, the grommets and closure just right! And how interesting that your tags are so muted and soft edged with textured depth. I am charmed, Jeanne Sylvie. What a lovely way to honour your vision this year.

  2. From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU my dear!!!!!!Your kind words about my work are really what i needed to feel better. You trully made my day, kindness is such a soothing balm!!!I send plenty good vibrations your way!!!!!

  3. Dear Jeanne-Sylvie, it is something we share in our creative isolation, this need for acknowledgement and tenderness. I feel the same way with our new friendship about your visits and thank you very much for reaching out and caring. Take good care of your preciousness. X
