Never stop learning... that's what I've been told. So, I decided to take some online classes to learn some new stuff. Besides the hand lettering one (my new obsession) I mentioned previously, I also am taking a 'doodling' one. Even though I've been drawing for most of my life, it's always nice to see someone else's take on things. I've even learned some interesting tips and tricks to further my doodling skills. :D
The instructor had said to 'doodle your morning routine', so this is what I did. It turned out quite cool! It was so fun to do this and I'm surprised that I haven't thought to try this before! Give it a go and don't worry about how things look. Just do it for yourself and have fun! :-)
So, as I mentioned, my latest 'obsession' is hand, brush and chalk lettering. I got home from work today to find amazon.ca had delivered some presents for me. :D I am very excited to continue learning this fun, new art form and these new tools will help me do it.
I am taking an online class and one of the teachers is the author of the Chalk Lettering book. Can't wait to check it out! Always do something creative, everyday! I consider this my therapy to help me through some of life's problems. Enjoy your day! :D
I am having sooooo much fun with my new Tim Holtz stamp sets! I just had to have these cool little bird stamps (Bird Crazy by Tim Holtz). Then, I saw the accessories, words and thoughts. My bank account hates me but they are so worth it.
You can use water colour pencils, paints or even markers to colour them in but they are so funny and full of character, you can use them for pretty much every occasion. I have done a birthday card, a book mark and just a cool little image to display in my craft room.
I'm sure I'll find more ways to use these crazy little guys so I'll post when I do. Do yourself a favour and get a hold of these stamps before they're gone! Have fun.
I know it's been a while since I posted anything but it's been a slow start getting back to any 'fun' stuff.
I'm working on getting my creative juices flowing again by doing some journalling. Hopefully, I'll have something to show very soon.
In the meantime, here is one product that I'd LOVE to get my hands on! They're called Chameleon alcohol markers but I can't seem to find them in my local craft stores yet. Since our CDN dollar sucks right now, ordering from the states is not a good option for me. If anyone knows where you can get them (without going through the US) that would be so appreciated.
Anyhow, you have to check out this video. They are very cool! You can get gradients without having to have a whole range of pens/colours. Can't wait to try them out. Have a great and creative day! :D
I love to scrapbook, make cards and other handmade paper 'stuff'.
