Straw and Paint

So.. busy times with Mother’s Day and track and field. We have sports most nights at the moment. I have to be organised lol.

Does anybody want to break out of their comfort zone with me and go big?

I just painted over an old canvas 11 x 16 using acrylic paint and a straw:

A bit grey using a palette knife so I soon swapped it out for a straw.

I got so carried away that my son was a tiny bit late for baseball practise oops!

Here is the finished version:

I felt a bit lightheaded after all that blowing. What else would make the same effect? A hairdryer perhaps.

Anyone else getting bored of brushes?

I bet a sheep would look funky in this style. Watch this space.

Happy creating!

 

Going Scruffy

This was a mix of scribbly oil pastels and scribbly digital art. I seem to be really going off paintbrushes so I’ll have to try my hand at pouring paint and mix it with oil pastels or something.

I was a naughty mum the other day. Matthew has been waiting and waiting for a fidget spinner for the longest time (hold up at Canada Post) so when I got a package I didn’t unpack it. I thought it was the fidget spinner and let him open it after school. Big oops he was so disappointed. It was my lino that I finally ordered for my big plank of wood. I’m going to make stamps (If I dare use the tools after slicing my finger open last time).

Note to self: Secretly open package and glue back together when I’m sure lol. p.s. He used his own money to buy something similar from the shop. It’s a cube with things to move on it.

So next week I shall show you guys some new stamps. For now I am beavering away at the kitchen cabinets that we are repainting. Five stages of work for each one. No wonder I’m in a scribbly mood. What mood are you in?

Happy Creating!
