June 2019

I went to Blick on 23 St. and bought some items. I got these droppers to use with my alcohol ink.

I found a small tile in a random box of craft items and painted it with alcohol ink. I wrote the Chinese word for Spring on it. I ordered some ribbons and fabric strips from Color Crazy and made the locker hooked design from one of her patterns.

I participated in the Rag Bag Gals sticks and stones amulet bag swap, I put my treasures on top of the Chinese symbol for double happiness.

Another patchwork bag

Received this notice.  I sent an email to the id asking what the difference was between fiber arts, mixed media and crafts.  I also asked who is the the Visual Arts Committee.  These distinctions seem arbitrary to me.

May 2, Holocaust Remembrance
This alcohol ink work I made in memory of Lori Gilbert Kaye who lost her life in the shooting at the Poway Synagogue.  The chief rabbi of that congregation said that the way to react to darkness is with light.
