It’s so fun to see what happens when you layer these different patterns. . . . . #artjournal #artjournaling #artjournalpages #sketchbook #sketchbookproject #sbpprocess #papercut #papercutting #papercutart #papercutartwork

With my second Sketchbook Project Paper cut journal I am having such a good time exploring micro and macro natural forms. I like being loosely to moderately inspired Buy something and then allowing the art to take me where it will. I like the way that this top layer looks like a plant 🌱 cellular cross section and the layer below looks sort of like Pine needles going this way and that. . . . . . . #artjournal #artjournaling #artjournalpages #papercutartjournal #mindfulartstudio #mindfulart #intuitiveart #organicart #organicforms #sbpprocess #sketchbookproject #layersoflightclass

Every time I make a paper cut journal I have a really good time. Thanks @thesketchbookproject for the amazing global art project. It fills me with wonder to see all those books filled with original art of all levels from all over the world. These journals also give me lots of space to play with knives! 😝😮😘💁‍♀️ . . . . . #sbpprocess #sketchbookproject #papercutjournal #layersoflightclass #papercut #papercutting #papercutart #papercutartist #papercutout #papercutouts #papercuttingart #papercuttingartist #papercuts #papercutouts #scoutbooks #organicart #organicshapes #whiteart

I think half of the art process is just showing up. Just make something. It doesn’t have to be good. It definitely won’t be perfect, but showing up builds a habit, and a habit builds skills and a deep presence in your art if you welcome it. So make something. Take 5 minutes.

Thank you Danielle Krysa@thejealouscurator for saying and writing what we’ve all been wanting to see: women artists getting their due. Even my very feminist art history teacher who introduced me to Cindy Sherman and Frida Kahlo, showed us far more men’s work. I am loving the pattern driven artists plus @naomi_okubo and @rebeccalouiselaw so far. And I can’t wait to see @catherinegraffam work here in Arlington MA because her paint is like velvet. Well done Danielle and thank you! Can’t wait for volume 2! . . . . . . #abigimportantartbook #thejealouscurator #daniellekrysa #womensart #femaleartist #femaleartists #createeveryday #artbook #bestread #womenartists

This is the first piece in a collaboration between me and @chiliwackarts She does these wonderful watercolor pieces, usually with overlays. She sent me two of the watercolors. Instead of her adding colors or marks, I’m paper cutting them. I think my part of this is done. Michelle, what do you think? What about others? Have you done collaborative art before? Collaboration is a great way to push yourself as an artist. . . . . #collaboration #artcollab #artcollaboration #organicart #inspiredbynature #papercut #papercutting #papercuttingart #papercutart #papercutout #papercutouts #papercutartist #paperart #paperartist #paperartists

Getting to walk into this space every day to create and write is a true pleasure. This past year I really prioritized making my studio a place that met my practical needs, felt open and airy, an most of all, inspired me. I’m sure there are some tweaks to come, but I’m loving it. Here’s some of what I’ve got that really makes a difference: These two large IKEA Kallax shelves for storing supplies, Safco 5 drawer unit (that was the big splurge- you could do IKEA Alex drawers.) I love being able to store papers and work flat. I also took over a tall counter height table with adjustable chair. Having two work surfaces is a luxury, and I’m finding this chair is better for writing. We also used to have two different carpets in there separating his and her space, so once I had the other desk, I moved the carpet to the middle and this unified the space. So basically, I guess the moral of the story is, do more and more art, talk about what you wish you had in your space until your husband offers you his part of the studio of his own accord. (He has a shop downstairs.) 🤓 What ideas do you have for your space? I have a whole post on creating an art studio at home, even in tiny spots in my links.

There is a wonderful calm that comes over me while paper cutting. A simplicity in removing each little piece, watching a pattern emerge. I’m so grateful to have found this beautiful art form. What brings you calm in art? . . . . . #mindfulartstudio #creativeselfcare #paperart #paperartist #papercut #papercutting #papercutart #papercutartiat #whiteart #organicart #organicforms #papercuttingart #papercutout #papercutouts #meditativeart #mindfulart #intuitiveart #layersoflightclass

amymaricle. The beautiful group of artists who arrived today to paint and draw wit

The beautiful group of artists who arrived today to paint and draw with a group of strangers and showed up with great openness. They found they could create without expectation, reflect on the process of the work, give themselves room for mistakes, and push through frustration to create something they really loved. They also learned to make smoky backgrounds and blind contour drawings. All the lessons I hope will serve you for years to come, ladies. Big hugs! ❤️❤️❤️.

It never ceases to amaze me how impactful simplicity is- especially when you layer simple things together. Then I guess it’s not so simple. 🙄 okay but still- our art doesn’t need to be complex to be beautiful and so soul satisfying. What about trying to make the simplest thing you can today that you still find satisfying? Like one line? P. S . Alcohol inks and collating with them is one of the techniques I teach in Layers of Light.
