Trying New Things
I have been trying lots of new things lately (sewing, drawing, watercolors etc.), and having a grand time. My desire and ability to create is in high gear! Plus I have all of these great ideas for blog posts. I want to talk about social media and how it impacts the way that we think about ourselves. I want to talk about encouraging you (and me) to try new things and have fun while doing it. I want to talk about how important it is to find activities that you enjoy and to pursue them. I want to talk about giving yourself permission to do things that make you happy. For some reason the words are stuck. I think these are interesting topics and relevant to the crafting world. We're just not going to be talking about them today!
Instead let me tell you about these watercolors and sketches!
I found some inspiration on Pinterest and decided to see what would happen if I made my own "paint blob" animals. The birds came easily after all the practice I have had working on the Nirvana Design logo. The others took a few rounds to get ears and such in the right place.
There is something irrationally cute about these small farm animals. I am taken with the piggies (even the word echos cuteness) and for the past two nights I have been sketching them in various poses. Mostly trying to capture a pig in flight.
Right up there on the adorable scale don't you think? My water color technique is rough, but I am going to try adding color to the two on the left tomorrow. Regardless of how it turns out I am reveling in the joy of putting brush to paper and watching to changes that occur.
Why not take a chance and try something new today?! I bet you'll be surprised!
Thanks for stopping by friends.
Until next time, wishing you creativity and joy!
