I missed it yesterday!!!
For today, I just finished this… I found the instructions on Pinterest. It said to use old watercolor paintings but I used bits and pieces of what I had…. Not sure I’m done with this one… It might make a reappearance later.
I’m starting to get really into carving stamps. I made two this morning – one for the center of a flower and one for the petals. I decided to try these out on cards. Turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself! 🙂
Happy Day 4!!
I had no time/energy to work on anything today so I thought I would share this painting I did last month for Day 3!!
Reminds me of a quote: “Be yourself. Just be yourself about your art and everything else.”
Fly your flag… BE YOURSELF.
I have a lot of half-finished paintings and drawings and other things in my art room. I don’t mean to abandon them. If I don’t finish them quickly I’ll either get distracted or lose interest or something else will happen (like getting sick). Then I won’t get back in there for a day or two and by the time I manage to visit my art room again I’m ready to work on something else.
Happens all the time.
So thinking about Art Every Day Month, I wanted to look around for some new techniques to try. New things that were not too involved. Quick art projects that could be finished in a day or so. With materials I already had.
Collage with printed background:
Happy ‘Art Every Day Month’ 2014!!!!
I’ve participated for a few years now. Last year, I think I made it all month. I think.
I don’t feel like this is something that I HAVE to do but something that I want to do. So no guilt if I miss a day. I can just pick it up the next day and go forward. The whole purpose for me is to get into the habit of creativity and grow as a result of my efforts.
What an awesome idea this project is… plus I get to see all this awesome artwork by others who participate!
I’m sorta into printmaking over the last few days:
I carved a quarter repeat stamp (learning a lot from books… and Pinterest.. and Google)
Another journal page:
Collage and lettering. Still working in my journal. Still love it! Have a great day! (wish I was wordier today)
to hang on to some stuff, even when you don’t know why.
The other day, I was hanging out in my art room and came across something that I’m sure is at least 6 years old. I knew I wasn’t crazy about it when I made it but for some reason, I had kept it. I had made this collage around the time I was ‘laid off’ from my job and I remember trying to choose papers and wording that meant something to me. Anyway, I made this collage and………. didn’t like it.
So I thought at the time “I wonder what would happen if…”. I dug out some acrylic paint and painted hearts, and then painted the negative space around the hearts… THEN I outlined the hearts in white paint and added the green dots with my fingers.
Then left it alone until last week when I found a piece of white matting and a frame…
Turns out that I like it… not exactly museum worthy but hey…
Have a great day!
