So it is Thursday night and I want to start a collage on my new multi-media journal but... I am having the hardest time starting. I am not sure how to begin, what I want to say, or what images to use. I am afraid of ruining it or of making something that does not look good. Which is constant thing for me to be afraid of making of move.
You guys should see I have a bunch of stuff out my crayons, some drawings from,and markers and I don't know what to do !!! why?
How do you guys start a project when you are not sure how to begin? I think that is always a challenge when you have to tackle a project.
What do you guys think?
If you guys are curious look at the materials I have to work with,
Hi everybody, I was on one of my walks through union square and I saw the trees with such pretty flowers in them I was inspired to take pictures of them, definitely going to use this in my art work somehow. I am also excited because I have few new followers on twitter, that is always exciting that brings it to a total of 81!! That may not be a lot but for me it might as well be a million. Tomorrow is my Monday night painting class at the Art Studio New York. I am really looking forward to see how the finished painting comes out. I will keep you guys posted.
Anyway ,I was roaming around the village and took some nice pictures of random things that I think look interesting.
I tend to like objects that have interesting shapes, besides that I love the brownstones in NYC I find them to be so beautiful and they give the city so much character. So obviously there are some pictures below of this as well.
Also for some reason I love the shape of the construction machines the CAT. Yes I know I am weird... but I think they look so cool! Does anyone else think the same?or not, it's ok if you don't.
One more quick thing I wanted to mention is that i started reading an issue of Somerset Digital Studio, and the new Somerset Art Journaling I will share the information next time. I don't like to make these too long... but stay tuned.
Have a nice Sunday afternoon.
Hi everyone, I know it is Saturday night so I will make it short. I mentioned earlier in a tweet that there was an exhibit in Madison Square Park and I promised more pictures. So I will post them now.
It is this really cool exhibit by Paula Hayes called Gazing Globes and it is going at Madison Square Park.
The pictures are below and since the weather is nice out go check them out... tomorrow is the last day Good Night!!
Hello everyone, like I mentioned before I started taking an art class on Monday nights. I am so excited about it I have something to look forward to at the end of the day on Mondays. It is an intro to painting class and first project was a mono chromatic painting. I have included some pictures below of painting. What else can I talk about.....I am working hard to try and blog once a week and it is a bit of a challenge to find a topic to write about, those of you who know me, know that I am not big on talking, although it is more writing but still it is a challenge. Does anyone have any comments or constructive critics, ideas for blogging?
Like I mentioned on my last post I am starting dabble with the mixed media I went to Barnes and Noble the most magical place in the whole wide world, next to Disney Land of course!
Any way I bought a book full of artist papers. The book is called "Flow" there is also a magazine with this name.
I know what you guys are thinking... papers really? Yes!!! papers I almost jumped up and down like a 5 year old when I saw it. I showed it to one of friends ( you know who you are) and she thought it was cool and it is really cool! It has stickers, all kinds of colored papers, post cards, even decorated paper bags! Take a look at the pictures below.
I also started watching youtube videos of mixed media artists. Specifically art journaling, if you type in mixed media art journaling there are a lot informative videos that show step by step instructions. I will post pictures of the mixed media when I have enough to show.
