http://www.carlasonheim.com/intro-to-gelli-plate-printmaking/ That class was very good and I learned so much. In undergrad I was a printmaking major so it was like coming home in a way.
The title for this was suggested by a dear friend. This collage is especially personal and deep with meaning for me. This is one of my favorites from this ongoing series.

the background is a Gelli print. The rest is a combination of digital and hand cut and paste. I had great fun doing this one- I remember using a dial telephone like this one when I was little and it was a party line- for those that never experienced that- you shared the line with several others and when you picked up to call if someone was on- you could listen to their conversation! There is a story to be told with this collage and I hope you come up with your own.

http://artjuvenation.blogspot.com/ I do love to create these fantasy worlds. The digital process can help do this but I find myself now feeling that these kinds of things are now leaving me a bit empty sometimes. I have been feeling the need to go deeper and plan to do that in a journal I have just made. I think it is good to step back from time to time to think about what I am doing and why am I doing it. Do any of you take time to do that? I do plan to continue to make some things like this digital collage as I think it's fun and I like doing it but I need to balance that with making some things more personally authentic and not really to share in the same way. I realize that both are OK and I need to balance both kinds of art making.
