My pandemic fatigue was temporarily lifted after receiving my first COVID-19 vaccine. I felt a bit of hope at last...a glimmer of possibility that I may soon venture out of the confines of my house, where I feel like I've been under house arrest for over a year. But on March 10th, mask mandates in Texas were lifted & sent me back on "House Arrest." Continue reading

Thank you for your sweet comment, Asmah! I'm glad you enjoyed the masking technique. It's such a great idea & virtually can cut any image from any magazine & laminate it. I will be getting my 2nd shot next week. So nice to hear from you! Hugs!
I recently received my first COVID-19 vaccine and set out to art journal this momentous occasion. I tried out some new techniques with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, my Gelli plate, and even some intimidating doodling. This mixed media art project is a part of my "Art Journaling the Pandemic" project.

Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Lili! I really appreciate your visit to my blog and your years of support. Please visit again. Hugs!
Thank you, my dear friend for your lovely comment! It has been a real challenge holding on to joy with all that's been going on for the past year. Thank you for your love and your support! I miss you terribly! And do send some of that Florida sunshine to thaw us out here in frigid Texas! Hugs. Eniko

I'm testing the comments section...someone mentioned that they had trouble leaving a comment.
Happiness: the state of being happy - a sense of well-being, joy, or contentment. I'll take it. Although I have many moments of joy and well-being sprinkled throughout most of my days, I've been trying to remember when I was truly happy for an extended period of time. The threat of COVID-19 has kept me from many of the things that make me happy. Traveling to visit friends, family, and places that I love, going out to dinner, attending concerts, going to the movies, and even going on a simple shopping trip to the mall, or to Macy's, always created joy for me. Having been sequestered for nearly a year now, happiness has become far too elusive. I began to ponder happiness and how I could portray a feeling of joy through mixed media art. Continue reading

I am Art Journaling the Pandemic. I know some people are adjusting well to the multitude of changes that this past year has thrust upon us, and others feel helpless, lonely, and afraid. I fall somewhere in the middle. I think I'm adjusting well enough, but I sometimes do feel helpless against this virus that has essentially kept me under house arrest for the past nine and a half months. We all have to make choices about coping with these unsettling times and situations, and I have chosen to return to art. Continue reading

Thank you for your lovely comment, Julie! I really appreciate it. Coral Gables is a magical place and seems to be populated with some truly wonderful individuals who embrace the best that life has to offer...our dear friend Judy being one of them. Since having lost my Jim, I appreciate each day of life more than ever. What a pleasure to have met you & Ted and I so look forward to seeing you again!
Kay, I'm so pleased that you like my photographs. Coral Gables suits me so well...I feel like we are a very good fit at this moment in time. I always regret that we didn't get together when we where geographically so much closer. I always felt such a kinship with you...especially in the sharing of eachother's artwork. Stay warm, my dear friend! -Eniko
Oh Janet, so much to deal with... So difficult with aging parents utterly helpless we feel at times, yet with resilience, we bounce back, don't we? I'm not familiar with Gimp, but photo-editing is where it's at in the digital age! Great word! Hoping it all gets sorted out for you. All the best in 2014!
Hi Val! I've been shooting with my Nikon my SLR! I shot in color, then converted to black & white in Photoshop Elements. I think the real art in this project is the artful cropping and getting the lighting just right for the desired contrasts. Thanks for sharing your word...TRUST is a really good one!
Thank you, Audrey! It's been a wonderful project and I've learned so much about lighting and composition and Black and White imagery. Thanks for stopping by!
I've never been much for New Year's resolutions, but I really like the idea of choosing a word as inspiration for the year. I have chosen the word BALANCE as my guiding word for 2014, and as I create balance in my artwork, my intention is for it to guide me into balance in my life. Continue reading

I love the Typocraphy collection! Fun & versatile! Great tutorial! Thank you!
From your lips to God's ears...I do hope 2014 will be exactly as you describe. So far, so good... Thank you for your constant encouragement and your loyal friendship. (And I've been loving what you've been doing with the CSI layouts!) Giant hugs!
"Live well and prosper"...what a great motto to live by, Kay! Coral Gables does feel like a dream. I miss my Jim terribly, but I know he would be so pleased to see me happy in a warm, magical place with new adventures and lovely new friends. Hugs!
Thanks so much for your sweet comment, Heather! We're both going through some major growth as we embark on our journey into 2014... xox
Oh Jackie, I love it when you comment on my blog! The one thing this new home in Coral Gables is definitely NOT, is gloomy! I wish I could wiggle my nose & import you here for a day or would love it! The vegetation is over-the-top! It feels like waking up in the Garden of Eden every morning. We're busy preparing for out New Year's Eve Masked Ball! So much fun!!!! Love you to bits! Thanks for your blessing & good wishes! Happy New Year! -Eniko
Tere!!!! How fabulous that you read my blog! Coral Gables is indeed a magical place...made more so by the lovely people, as yourself, who live here! Looking forward to our Masked Ball! What a way to bring in the New Year! (Wait till you taste the star fruit punch we tried out today!) Hugs, Eniko
With the intention of relocating to a beautiful warm place where people my age are having fun, the arrow on the spinner pointed to Miami...Coral Gables to be precise, where I found exactly that. Here's the layout I created in anticipation of my move. Continue reading

Great card & tag! Love the collaboration!
