My printer is driving me NUTS! It's obviously PMS and not speaking to my computer--no way, no how. Since my printer is an "all in one" it's now an "all in one FAIL". I now have to scan to a flash drive and then download the picture onto my computer. Grrrr... Because I am not big on taking that much time to do anything technical, I have not been posting my art lately. Said art has consisted almost exclusively of zentangle swaps. I LOVE to zentangle--there is a finished project quick! Just my style.
When Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle blog announced she was hosting a "Summer of Color" I knew I had to jump in. A push was needed! Every monday she gives us "the color" and the sky's the limit from there--at least that's my interpretation. Any sort of art, any sort of medium. And the bonus of it all is that there are prizes (I LOVE prizes!!!) in the form of art supplies (I LOVE art supplies!!!).
It's free to join in the fun!
The first weeks color was blue. Hmmmm.... not a color I usually choose to work in. Oh yea, the "push", right. Hey there's that blue page in the journal that I made--sounds like a great place to start.
There are stacks of ephemera in my studio that I don't ever use because "I really should get it color copied"--that way I could use it in multiple pieces of art, right? Well, having put the PRO in procrastination, it never gets copied or put into art. "Push". I opened up one of those children's books with such amazing bright colors and cut right in. What a rush! A sense of freedom! Scary!
Paint, glue, papers, stencils, markers, glitter & dirty hands. So much fun. Thank you to Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle blog for the push. I'm looking forward to 9 more weeks of COLOR.
