March Art Journal Pages





Spring is such a fickle friend ..
warm one day,
 chilly the next..

we have had such a wet winter..
which made for a heavy pollen season here in Florida..

and people who suffer such things as allergies..




The white mono print to the left of the birds is a manipulated, double packing tape transfer,
surrounded by mono prints..
detail from March Art Journal Pages, Caterina Giglio.



have had a rough time of it this year..

I have no such problems however..

but the weather greatly affects me and I miss the sun...









strange...
 how the weather so disturbs us..
I know the sun is always shinning above the clouds..
but the warmth of the sun feels so good..
light is so invigorating...

and one can see everything so clearly.





So my pages for March reflect the view from my studio window..
the white flowers on the trees gone too soon..
in the rain.
the soft yellow gold of the new leaves..

and the brown sandy earth..
the birds fighting for room in their bath..






I used a variety of techniques for my pages..
including mono printing and packing tape transfer, that I manipulated and doubled...
 as well as stencils applied to the page.. in layers.


Ingredients: Acrylic paint, watercolor paint, colored pencil, pencil, antique ephemera, stencils, mono prints, collaged papers, packing tape transfer.




This will be a very busy week as we get ready to visit Cuba..
which is very exciting..
it is a cultural exchange trip..
and we will have a guided tour..

so I am working in the studio to get things all set up
for our return..

We will have another video for you on 
April 5..
I will cover my art journal with my mono print fabric

and I plan to create my travel journal, using a different non sewing technique
and applying 
Plaster Cloth..

You can keep up with our travels on Facebook
and Instagram..
see you then..

Ciao, Ciao!

I'm desperately trying to play catch-up after being without internet for nearly a week. Your March spread is beautiful. I am in awe. I adore all the layers you created. I'm off to see your latest video, too. BTW, have fun in Cuba. I look forward to seeing what you do with plaster cloth, too.

Hi Caterina, from Romania. I love your art, yours works and I follow your blog every day. I am fascinated by your techniques presented on YouTube. Thank you for all. I started with textile art/patchwork but now I love more mixed media. I'm not so productive, may be more intuitive but I try to be when I see your posts. Thank you.

Beautiful art from your months soon gone, dear Cat- here I also miss the sun and warmth , making worries and things seem easier to cope with, but hopefully the blessed spring will soon be here.
Take care on your Cuba tour, and enjoy all the new and maybe strange impressions you will meet there. Hugs on the way .... xoxo
