I will always ❀ stamp carving. Carved this little beauty today and seeing the pattern proliferate makes me happy! πŸ™Œ #stampsthatpattern

Continuous line drawing with an ink pen that bled with the addition of water. (This is one of my favorite art-on-the-go tricks. All you need is an ink pen and a waterbrush and you've got magic in your sketchbook!) #100daysof15minuteBALZERfaces 22/100

Taking this painting & one other to be hung in the Watertown Art Association's annual show: April 30 - May 21. Opening reception is Sunday, April 30 2-4pm at The Arsenal Project Innovation Space in Watertown. All are welcome! πŸ‘

This week, the online class I'm teaching is all about carving triangles. πŸ”ΊπŸ™Œ So many magical possibilities! #stampsthatpattern #whatjulietaught

I wanted to try a more detailed continuous line drawing. It was surprisingly difficult to keep my hand from lifting away from the paper. I had to really focus in on that idea the whole time. Must practice more! πŸ’ͺ #100daysof15minuteBALZERfaces 21/100

Weird angle for the camera on this one. Did it during a lull in class today. 😱 Shhh...don't tell anyone. πŸ™ŠπŸ˜‚ #100daysof15minuteBALZERfaces 19/100

There were so many questions about yesterday's print, so I put together a few videos with answers for you today! If you swipe left, there are three videos chatting about this kind of screenprinting. No sound in the first video, but the other three all involve talking -- tap the screen to hear it! Enjoy! #100daysof15minuteBALZERfaces 18/100

Screenprinting today! After I turned the camera off, I pulled three more prints onto plain paper. You can see that the colors get muddier and muddier as you go along. #100daysof15minuteBALZERfaces 17/100

I'm hosting my very first "rented space workshop" (is that a thing?) here in Boston this weekend. I'm nervous about having to do it all: set up, coordinate, and teach. But I'm calming my nerves by putting together some little gift packets for each of the attendees! I hope they like them and that everything goes smoothly! πŸ‘ #whatjulietaught

I used a piece of copy paper I had scribbled on yesterday. Wasn't sure how it was going to take the paint, but it actually stood up to a few layers of water and abuse! #learnsomethingneweveryday πŸ’‘ #100daysof15minuteBALZERfaces 16/100
