Artiscape Fatbook Swap


I am taking part in a Fatbook Swap for Artiscape.
Here's my contribution:

Right Brain, Left Brain Test

Here's a cool thing to look at about yourself. I found it very insightful and reassuring.

My score: 60% Right 40% Left.
60% Fantasy-oriented (My most dominant characteristic)
Fantasy-oriented Processing
Fantasy-oriented processing is used by the right hemisphere as a method for processing information with creativity. It focuses much less on rules and regulations than the processing method of a left-brained person. Due to the fantasy-oriented processing mechanism of a right-brained person, they do not adjust well to change. Instead of adapting to the change in the environment, a right-brained person attempts to change it back to the way they liked it. But fantasy-oriented processing also provides the advantage of creativity to right-brained individuals, and since emotion is integral of the right side of the brain, anything a fantasy-oriented person becomes involved in emotionally will aid their ability to learn.
My Fantasy-oriented Analysis
You are highly able to process information you receive with creativity. Your focus does not get caught up in rules and regulations. However, you usually do not adjust well to change. Instead of adapting to it, you often try to keep things as they were. Creativity is your big advantage as well as your tendency to become emotionally involved in your work.

Have fun with it . . . Deb

Chunky ATC swap


I made my first chunky ATC's last weekend for a swap with a yahoo group.
They are fun to make. Can't wait to see what others have done.
Today I am working on some art to swap at Artiscape in a few weeks. I am really looking forward to going to this art retreat in Columbus, Ohio. My dream would be to teach a class at an event like this. I working on getting published in one of the mixed media publications, that will get my name out there. I am hoping to take a class with Ingrid Dijkers in August up in Northern Ohio. The timing may not work for my work schedule.
A bunch of us meeting in Marne today. We try to get together once a month to share and have a good time.
Time to get back to work on creating some swap items . . .
