Big news I am taking an art class. YAY! it is a beginner's painting class and I am really excited about it. Anyway just wanted to share that. Also I have become interested in mixed media work. I have been watching these cool videos on mixed media techniques and art journaling. I made a trip to the art store and picked up a mixed media sketch book so that I can start working on it. I also saw these really cool mixed media effects at the art store which I am so excited to try.
I like to go to my local thrift store to collect some interesting items . Some items I have been collecting are antique postcards from the 1930s'-1940s. They are real postcards written by people in Europe at the time. I find it so interesting and sad at the same time, I have this post card that some one wrote like 80 years ago but then I think who wrote this and what do they say, and why did the write them, who did they write them to (the post cards are in other languages so I can't read them)? Some of them are dated around the time of World War II and I think... wow what was this person going through at this crazy time in history? Where they writing to a loved one explaining how scary the situation was? And now I have this postcard and I wonder is the writer of the postcard alive is the person who was receiving it alive? How did this person's postcard end up in a pile at thrift shop...that I feel, is the sad part. I put some pictures below about what I am talking about. So take a look at the pictures. Any comments or insights let me know.
This is the mixed media techniques that I am going to start trying out.
