    Cool ... i S o L a T i O n...F u N ....What are you working on?

    Keep those creative juices flowing. You have a lot of time on your hands!!!

    For some of us staying home all the time is normal. Some are happy to get a chance to stay home. Others feel like they are locked up in a cage and just want to fly free. But all of have an interest in creating things!

    This thread is a place where we can chat about any of our creative projects. What are you working on? writing a poem or novel, scrapbooking, Knitting, remodeling your craft room, sewing or quilting, making art for your walls, or for trading? Are you learning something new?

    I'll follow. I'm not sure if I will share that much. I'm more like a "reader" not a "writer" here.

    Creative juices, or digestive juices? Does it count that I'm back to baking bread? In one of the ATHONs we were discussing bread baking and I was moaning because there was no bread flour in the stores. Well, one of my friends is moving and she gave me a half bag of bread flour. Away I go. This is the bread machine recipe for English Muffin bread which I made last week and is in the machine for another loaf today:

    water 1 1/4 cups
    sugar 2 teaspoons
    salt 1 teaspoon
    baking soda 1/4 teaspoon
    bread flour 3 cups
    nonfat dry milk 3 tablespoons
    yeast 2 teaspoons

    The top will be slightly sunken. The texture is kind of holey - good for catching butter.

    Oh good! We can keep in touch. I'm still playing randomly in my journal.

    Jo, that bread sounds good. I have no bread flour, no bread machine though.

    I have just completed my first zentangle piece that wasn't random design. It's actually my second because I ruined the first one when I tried to color it in...the pencil just smeared. Lesson learned... I'm debating on doing this second one again, even though I've found these to be very difficult for me and I'm not sure the next try will be any better. Tell me how upset you would be if this is what you received in a swap (don't be nice, be honest...my sister called it a demon hummingbird):

    Following...I'm working from home, but now that I don't go out on weekends or in the evening anymore, I still have extra creative time.

    I agree! I wish I could make some of jo.on.the.go's bread, or the breads in the other thread...

    Ksj1717 I think you did great with the design, color and patterns. The rounded wing feels off to me, and I think it's the beak that gave your sis the Demon bird idea. LOL

    Sniisk, anything creative can be shared. Are you remaking another bookshelf to fit your small space, or doing any art?

    AmySi I really want to work on a selection of techniques with added instructions I keep so I will remember. But top on my list today is making masks. My husband has only reminded me about it four or five times.

    CiCi I was going to put a picture with a bunch of colorful birds I got from Graphic Fairy but it was just so small. So I looked at some of my art for something to fit the "isolation-caged bird" theme. I made and traded that house shaped atc two years ago.

    Hello to everyone!

    I was asked to show pictures of the gel prints I made this week. You can get a bigger image by clicking on them...
    3-gel-prints 4-20-2020.jpg3-close up-gel-prints 4-20-2020.jpg the second one shows some details. The one on top is one of my favorites. I put some paint on it using punchanella. I held the two straight edges together and dipped the curved edge into paint and stamped it onto the print. The pink in the corner is a color spray I spritzed on the mostly white paper print I got when picking up the remnants after I did the first print.

    1-Gel-prints 4-20-2020.jpg2-gel-prints 4-20-2020.jpg The top right print in second photo here was printed on a piece of turquoise cardstock. It would have shown a lot of white. The light gray one looks bland but has some cool color textures to it.

    I really ought to try sewing masks. What is the best source for a pattern? I have been using a dust-mist mask that I purchased when I had been planning on spraying my yard for weed killer last spring, but I never got around to using it. Mine is a N95, not the R95, what everybody is scrambling to get. After I wear it, I spray it down with Lysol.

    My friend has a mask her boss made her and it is lined with some type of filtering material. I don't know where she got it.

    Here is a hilarious video about making masks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4c5eo_3-y0

    That bread sounds delicious!

    Beautiful colorful zentangle!

    Linda your papers are gorgeous! I see you are using colored paper for some. For others are you using white paper? If so what kind - copy paper, mixed media?
