I thought I would not be able to post today; Blogger seems to have had major issues today, the posts from yesterday are still AWOL, and I am wondering if they will turn up again!
But today is still Paint Party Friday, so here my efforts for this week. I wasn't feeling good this week, was very down, and painting and crafting are two of the things that help me in such situations.
Putting paint onto paper, however you do it, really is relaxing.
I made 2 paintings on Tuesday, which I randomly stamped with black ink, embossed and treated with perfect pearls, and used them to create die cuts, which I have used in my work this week, which was great fun. (See earlier articles from this week)
And then I made these three paintings. No subjects, just layers of colours. I am still thinking about whether to leave them as they are, or to use them for making embellishments again.
Yesterday evening I painted a canvas before I went to bed. Just lots of layers of colour, I seem to need this at the moment, and this will of course not be cut up. But I still think it needs something to finish it off. Time will – hopefully-tell. Anyone got any ideas?
This week I used a method that I developed in my childhood, and which I now I call *recurring artistic retrograde development*, or, more simply said, the 5 S method – splodge, smudge, smear, spray and scratch!
But it is fun, and it just does me good. Have a try!
And I also managed 3 tags yesterday. The team at *Just for fun* want us to use scraplings this week, so I used three paint cards Yvonne sent some weeks back, and turned them into bright and sunny children’s tags.
These are something quite different to the things ! usually make, but I think we all have to leave our comfort zone sooner or later!
Have a nice (Remains of the) Day, take care and thanks for looking!
