A bit of everything

I mentioned this month that I’m participating in a 30 day journal challenge. I think it’s the third time I’m doing it and I find it’s a good habit to develop. This time, I’ve been working in a small art journal in which I had already prepared a myriad of pages in the previous months. So I can focus on answering the prompts for the challenge. I haven’t shared any of the pages until now. This page seemed appropriate to share on my blog so this was my daily art for yesterday. Today, I made a set of ATCs (Artist … Continue reading A bit of everything

Drawings

Now that I’m back at work full time, I realize that daily blogging during the week is too much for me. So I think I’ll post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from now on. With maybe an occasional weekend post. Today is day 244 of my daily art project for 2016. Which means there’s only 1/3 of the year left! Also, I decided to keep my “free-for-all” art theme for September because I will also be participating in a free 30 day journaling challenge but I probably won’t share that on here. Anyway, here are yesterday and today’s art: a … Continue reading Drawings

Weekend update

In case any of you were wondering, I didn’t post on Friday because I had a long day of cleaning at work and an evening of dancing which didn’t leave much time for in depth creating and blogging. In fact, my daily art was a quick sketch on a previously painted journal page. When I looked at the page, I immediately saw the elephant shape and the lady bust so I decided to sketch Marie-Elephantoinette! See what I did there?!? I will paint her at a later date. And over the weekend, I kept things simple again with some doodling … Continue reading Weekend update

Back to reality

Just for a little while… My summer vacation is over and I’m going back to work at the school. I’m not complaining, just facing the fact. And it’s fine because I love my job. But it means I might be creating a lot of mandalas, zentangles and other quick art for a little while, until I get used to my schedule again. Then again, you never know when inspiration will strike. Today being my last official day of vacation, I spent it with family members, shopping and hanging out (also celebrating my brother’s birthday.) I only got to do my … Continue reading Back to reality

Weekend update

Another busy weekend has come and gone. Once again, I kept my daily art simple with a mandala and a zentangle. I rarely draw specific shapes when doing my zentangles but this time, for some reason, I started drawing a cup. And I really like how it turned out. For today, I went for another set of postcards. But this time, I played with watercolors. I painted rather quickly, without thinking too much and I like most of what I did. My favorite is the green “snowflakes” which were supposed to be mandalas. My brush was too big for any … Continue reading Weekend update

Alcohol ink postcards

Since starting this daily art project, I’ve been using techniques and products I hadn’t touched in a long time. And today was no different. I brought the alcohol inks out and some glossy paper which I cut to postcard size, 4″ x 6″. I’m not sure if I’ll leave them as is or if I’ll add to them. I could draw with a Sharpie, or stamp with StazOn ink, or even collage on top. What do you think? Once again, thanks for visiting and have a nice weekend! Continue reading Alcohol ink postcards
