Although it's not quite Summer, a hint of quiet anticipation is stirring in the air. The joy of longer days stretching ahead promise time for activities we planned to do "when we get around" to them. Mentally we prepare for the elusive three R's: Rest, Relaxation and Rejuvenation. And what better way to begin the journey than by taking your Pulse?
Mixed Media Artist, Designer, Instructor, and Author Seth Apter has embarked on the sixth edition “The Pulse”. Published each Wednesday, the collaborative project is a showcase designed to "introduce you to new artists, help you get to know familiar faces even more, further your own artistic expression, and allow you access into the creative hearts and minds of a very talented crew of individuals."*
The question posed this time was: What is the one technique or tool that you cannot live without?
My response focused on technique. I am delighted to say my collage of woven paper "Pulp" is included in the collection. For me, it's all about the story and the process of weaving the paper is not only meditative. I find just as our unique family histories interlace to form something new, so does this technique.
So as Spring transforms into Summer why not start your own tradition of Rest, Relaxation and Rejuvenation by visiting Seth’s Blog, The Altered Page? Reintroduce the spirit of creativity into your work not only with “The Pulse” but with Seth’s posts on a variety of topics and techniques. They will certainly get your creative pulse racing!
