JAMS (a.k.a. Judy’s altered minds)
Earlier I wrote about the little 3″ x 4″ black sketch books by Pentalic. They have 160 pages. I’ve filled two books with drawings and am working on a third. They are addictive to work in and lovely to hold.
In my next Noir Magic class, there will be an option to purchase a little blank book for use during the class and beyond.
Class is Saturday, July 27, 2019 at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria VA

What I’ve been doing:
I’m planning to sell these finished books at the Fall Market at Artistic Artifacts. Date to be determined.
These are my wonky, quirky Artist Trading Cards for Valentine’s Day. Handmade felt with beads.
Every month there is an ATC (Artist Trading Card 2.5″ x 3.5″) trade at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria. My offering will be 12 small fabric digital collages. On wispy see through organza I printed out a collage which I placed over hand dyed fabric. They were then stitched with gold metallic thread.
Soon I will be teaching this technique at Artistic Artifacts. The class will be in two parts, beginning with the digital collage aspect. The second class will cover making a print out and selecting fabric for the design. Details will be posted here as soon as I have the dates!
This is a digital collage from a while back. I shrunk it down to Artist Trading Card size, 2.5″ x 3.5″ and added some embellishments. I love the assembly line work of making little multiples.
It’s satisfying to complete a stack of ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards). I’m looking forward to the ones I will get in return. This is for the JAMs meeting, Sunday, October 15th at Artistic Artifacts at 1:00pm. If you’re in the area, come join us.

JAMs Judy’s Altered Minds Meeting
Judy’s Altered Minds JAMS group meets Sunday, June 25, 2017 at 1pm at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria for Artist Trading Cards, then for the general meeting.
The 2.5″ x 3.5″ trading card collages were made by cutting up some of the gel pen drawings I’ve recently made.
On the work table are some collages that will be turned into ATC’s Artist Trading Cards for a visit to Artistic Artifacts where artists trade these fun little 2.5″ x 3″ artworks. I’ve sewn together papers, watercolors, fabric and some shiny radiance papers which are then cut down to ATC size. It’s a good way to ‘mass produce’ a lot of little collages.
Here they are finished. The photo of the girl is from my old tintype collection.
