Hello ! February already ! What is it with getting older and time going faster ? I don't get it but I know I don't like it ! (haha, 3 exclamations and a question in the opening sentence, probably not a good way to start ).
Do you recall our current Creative Gym Challenge, "Intuitive Painting" ? We would love for you to play along, and you can find the details HERE.
Any way, I made some tags for this challenge. Very quickly, without thought or planning, just applied paint, using 3 very different techniques and just let it "happen".
Here's the result.
I love how they turned out, and I guess this is more by "random accident" than "intuitive", with the paint pretty much doing it's own thing. But, for me, it was still an exercise in "letting go".
These little rectangles of colour sat on my desk, for a week or so, until I could leave them naked no longer ! The control freak in me took over. I had to fuss over them and dress them up.
When you have some Finnabair art basics Gel Medium, Modelling Paste, and Texture Paste, Stencils, Mechanicals, Resist Canvas, Glitter and Glass Beads, along with 7 Dots Studio Stamps and Stickers, also sitting on your desk, it's very easy to play "dress ups"
All I've added are fibres, string, cotton, fabric, washi tape and wire. Some flowers, tissue images and a few bits of ephemera.
