GSC: wk 1/Day 3: Fabric Design

Posted a day late, but this draft was from yesterday:

Today, my daughter and I talked about how to make this summer fun. She complained that her summer has been boring. I reminded her that school ended for her about a week ago…LOL,…Chile give yourself time. She had to laugh at herself. I encouraged her to ease into it. A message I have to give to myself as well.

From late August until Mid-June, I have a lot of free time. I like to use that time for fun, travel and lots of creativity. I was initially very giddy about creating this self-directed Summer Camp, but when it was time to get started, I was stuck. So to get  “unstuck”  I used this deck I have called’ Art outside the box'” to warm up. I bought a large sketchbook just to have a place where I could be messy. A place I do not intend to share with the world. That brief warm up got me out of my judging mind and got me creating. As a result, I created a collage and completed the waxing for a batik project I have in the works.  I also started making a paper lamp shade. More tomorrow.
