I know it’s been a long time since I posted on this blog. I’m sorry for that. School has been ridiculous this last semester and I have been busy with making art and have neglected to post any. I started a fan page for my art on facebook at the suggestion of my best friend. There’s not much there at the moment, but there will be more coming. I hope you will check it out.
School has started back. I’ve only got two classes so I’m not that busy but somehow I find that I don’t have much to say. I’ll post a recent journal page later though, because it turned out really cool.
When you are intimidated by art materials you’ve never used before and aren’t quite sure how to use them, draw a 3×5 rectangle in your journal and experiment with the new material in just that spot. When you do this, you’re not afraid of screwing up a whole page.
I used fluid medium with my acrylics for the first time today. I have to say, I like that it because it helps me get the look of watercolors without bleeding through the thin paper of my moleskine. Also, adding a few drops of it to my paint means I can use less paint. Which means I don’t feel so guilty about buying the stuff that’s $8 a tube instead of just buying tons of the cheap craft paint.
