Hello out there in blog-land. How was your weekend? Mine was full of playing in my art journal with my water color pencils, and new Canson multi-media paper and water brushes. I made the cute little picture of the bear trying to get the honey. I was thinking I might put it on a card but the paper warped a lot so I have to try to flatten it first.
I also did a little sketching. I have not sketched anything in over 20 years and it isn’t very good but I had fun playing around. I sketched what I saw looking out my window while sitting at my desk. I exaggerated the big tree as the one I was looking at is just a sapling. This is what I came up with.
It’s basic and elementary but like I said I had fun playing with my water color pencils and trying to figure out how they work. I also played around with this one…
In this one I wanted to try to practice making a scene and playing with shadows which I am not very good at, as you can see since the shadows are all over the place. It came out kind of terrible but I had fun stamping everywhere and coloring. It’s fun to play! Sometimes you just gotta mess around and have fun!
I even made the first card I have made in months! Yay me! Sorry, but I was so proud of myself for coming up with a card and actually putting it together. I have been so discouraged about card making lately I have not made any other than the Father’s Day wallet card. So I was happy that I finally followed through and sucked it up and made a card.
Anyway, that is enough rambling for now. That’s all I have come up with so far but I am looking forward to seeing what I come up with next.
Have a great week and enjoy life’s sweet moments!
