New in :) @balzerdesigns #carvestampplay #gelliplateprinting #joanbess #balzerdesigns

I've noticed lots of new followers & I wanted to welcome you & introduce myself! My name is Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. Fei-Fan is my middle name -- pronounced fey fan -- it's Chinese & means unique.
.
I live & work in the Greater Boston area. I actually grew up in this area, but moved away for college (Rhode Island) and then to New York City, where I lived for 16 years. I wasn't sure if I'd like coming home to Boston, but after a year back here, I can tell you that I love it! .
I make all kinds of stuff -- paintings, mixed media collage, embroidery, quilts, hand carved stamps (Check out my book #carvestampplay), drawings & doodles, pocket scrapbooks/Project Life, art journals, hand bound books, cards & paper crafts, jewelry -- bead weaving, stringing, and metalwork, & more! Sometimes I think that I ought to focus in on one thing or another & have a specialty. But I just can't seem to force myself to do that. My creativity is driven by curiosity. And curiosity is a wild & free creature that cannot be controlled! .
I blog five days a week over at www.balzerdesigns.typepad.com. January is dedicated to celebrating my ten-year blogiversary with giveaways, posts from the archives, new tutorials, & so much more! .
I make a lot of videos & post them over on my YouTube channel (my username is milkcanNYC -- I used to be the Artistic Director of The Milk Can Theatre Company in NYC). Videos are tutorials, product reviews, process overviews, & weekly vlogs -- each Wednesday I release a ten-minute vlog that gives you a peek into my week. The Julie's World Vlogs are packed with art, food, family, friends, and fun! .
My Mom #juliesmomisawesome & I host The Adventures in Arting Podcast every other week-ish (free on iTunes). We chat about all things art -- sometimes with a guest & sometimes without. .
You can find my TV show -- Make It Artsy -- on your local PBS station (it plays at 3am here in Boston) or online at the @makeitartsytv website. .
I love everything art as well as puzzles & games, sci fi, trashy historical romance novels, exploring new places, 90s hip hop, food of all kinds, learning things, & funny people. Thanks for letting me share my artful life with you! 😘

I haven't carved nearly 20 stamps in the month of December for the #carvedecember challenge. But, I've taken a step back and am taking the step-by-step instruction in Julie @balzerdesigns #CarveStampPlay book. I feel further ahead with my carving skills because of this.
I like the way this larger stamp turned out. Love the design! But, one one edge, it's messed up from the packaging of the @speedball_art #SpeedyCarve. Oh, well, I still like it. #handcarvedstamp

January's #handcarvedstamp. Nothing like waiting until the last few hours.

A little stamp play for the day! If you're interested in designing these kinds of repeating stamps, I have an online class starting March 31. πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ ETA: I carved this stamp. It's my original design. .

Been trying to think about how to print my rotating repeat stamps so that you can look at the finished print and understand it's composed of smaller prints. What do you think of this solution? Any suggestions for another way to do it? .

A little stamp. A lot of pattern. πŸ™Œ #CarveDecember #stampcarving #printmaking #pattern #printing #whatjuliemade #balzervideo P.S. Instructions for these rotating repeat stamps can be found in my book: #carvestampplay ❀️

A little bit of #masking. A little bit of #embossing. A teeny little #stamp. And the reveal of a hidden message! πŸ™Œ #CarveDecember #stampcarving #whatjuliemade #repeatingpattern #tagart #printmaking #carvestampplay #joy #balzervideo

I carved up a little piece of garbage rubber to make something beautiful! P.S. Get a closer look at the stamp and print in my #instagramstory! πŸ‘ #CarveDecember #pattern #repeatingpattern #whatjuliemade #stampcarving #carvestampplay #printmaking #stamping #balzervideo

I've made 11 stamps from one piece of Speedy-carve! Time to shop for more supplies! #whatrobinmade #carvestampplay #ilovetocreate #distressmarkers
