Well, if you haven't visited since last weekend be sure to scroll down to Monday's post and read about last Friday's Cork and Canvas session I went to at Gallery 1212 in Old Town Lansing, MI. A great night of fun and art!!! Now onto this Friday and the Paint Party!!!
So, I have been chatting with Darla from Doodling in my Mind. She has a class project of making Sketch Book Covers. I love what she is doing so asked for the assignment....she was kind enough to send me a pdf and I have started my homework!!! lol...anyways. She has incorporated zentangles with creating your theme cover and I have sort of got it going on...sort of...I have been working on it in-between many things but take my journal with me and sketch, color, erase...did I say erase...and invision. My tangles that I have currently aren't tangly enough but they are truly zen-ful for me. I totally get sucked into the paper and my brain clears of all the clutter that is reeling around. It is funny, I am a true believer in coloring to calm the soul. I used to direct a Jenny Craig center and I would tell my clients when they were struggling to get out a coloring book and crayons - get started...scribble on the page if angry, color outside the lines if it felt good or just color and their focus would be with the page...all outside chatter would quiet. So, this project does the same thing and I am creating a cover for my sketchbook - all in one. It is in the works and I am changing the colors that I started to fill in with but am loving the process!!! Thanks Darla!!!
Thanks to Kristin and Eva for hosting such a huge Party each and every Friday!!!! It takes me all week to get through everyone!!!
p.s. I haven't forgotten about my bicycle painting....that I MUST do...but need sit down art-time for that project!
So, ask me about it when you visit...push me to pick up a serious brush!!!! Make me stop staring at the paper!!!!!!!!!!!!!
