I spent a GLORIOUS day boating on Lake George (NY). Gary rented a 20 foot speed boat that MOI got to drive. We rented water skis, a wake board and a humungous tube and spent 8 awesome hours in 82 degree, extremely low humidity sunshine. Of course we had 2 of the 3 boys with us. But it was still amazing!
My studio was calling to me this morning. I am now challenging myself to use up all the CRAP that I own and/or have on my work table. Well, it's not really a challenge because there is so much stuff sitting on top of and on the floor surrounding my workspace that it's easy to find things to play with. I don't want to spend any money on supplies. However, I did find that the new Sharpie PENS (not paints or the markers as we know them) write BeAuTiFuLlY on ANY SURFACE!!!!!
I bought a three pack of black and a pack that had one of each of orange, green, purple. And I didn't actually use real money. I got them at Staples using my ink cartridge recycle check. Here's what I created:
Let's see...I used beach blue spray mist, acrylic paints, gesso, more acrylic paints, stencils, glue caps for small outline of circle, Staz-On inks, my lovely Sharpie Pen, painted papers...I think that's everything. I'll journal on it later today...
