I am feeling much better today... thankfully. I had the idea to try painting on different surfaces. I used primed canvas, unprimed canvas, kraft paper, notebook paper, cardboard, fabric, coffee filter, cross stitch fabric, handmade paper and a recycled envelope. I used my Pitt pens with the brush tip to draw shapes (above).
This was really fun to work on. I liked seeing how the different surfaces took the paint. I liked how it layed out as well. Like a little collage itself.
I hope everyone had a great weekend full of lots of creating. I am right now listened the Amy Butler on CraftSanity. Love it!
This week I am going to do a color story inspired by fall of course and do an artist profile.
I also need to add some great new blogs to my side bar. In finding my blogging voice I have been of course reading lots of blogs and I have realized the ones that I really love not only show beautiful photos but also share alot of their story. So I hope to be able to do that more myself. It can be a bit scary I admit. I do want to say that I talked to my husband about me having an afternoon alone 1-2 times a month. I don't know why I felt hesitant to ask for this. Maybe the mom/wife expectations in my head. Anyway I am excited about having this time set aside just for me!
