Here is the only Art I did yesterday. I played around trying pens that work best and surfaces that I like to write on. Cheap craft paint makes the surface too stiff but Golden fluid acrylics were nice to work with. I found some pen/markers that work ok and others that are useless. I used tissue paper again and took a piece of sandpaper to dull an image but I think I used it too vigorously. Another lesson learned.
I found out most of my fiber sold down in Salt Lake so I decided to shop for Art supplies on line last night. The Internet is wonderful for that, you can just go shopping anytime you want. Yes I went nuts. I will have some goodies coming. There are some supplies recommended by Misty that I have been wanting to get. A set of markers, more re-inker colors, more white gel pens, new colors of paintsticks. I found out about this stuff called Grungeboard that I really thought was cool but its out of stock. I can see that it will be a big seller out there. Check this video to see it in action,
Off to Missoula
I head to Missoula tomorrow to take Sarah back to school and yes I'll be hitting the bookstore again. I think I may look at their tissue papers and pick up some watercolor paper. They have a kind I can not get locally. I hope the weather cooperates, I'd like a stress free trip if at all possible.
Quote of the Day:"The point of life is not to get anywhere—it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. You are always and forever in the moment of pure creation. The point of life therefore is to create—who and what you are, and then to experience that." - Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God
