I must tell you that my studio is a mess and I don't want to clean it up. The inner child in me is just having a tantrum every time I think about cleaning and organizing! I thought that 'Spring Cleaning' was a real thing. That I would get the urge to purge. Nonsense! I have been hoarding every little colorful bit of paper and scraps I can..lol Well I decided to try and clean one little shelf that is right above my desk. A place where I just stick stuff that is leftover from various projects. I challenged myself to make something pretty out of that clutter! Well, my first project is a collage tag and I think it came out pretty well so I made another :) See below
While I was editing the video I decided to do some Shout outs to some fun and creative art channels as well. So if you watch, be sure to go check them out and give them some love!
My next tag is made from a experimental tag I had in my desk pile I think it was trying out some home made modeling paste to see if it worked...it did. And it has something water soluble on it that is very shimmery so I am guessing maybe it is Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist experiments perhaps. There was also a piece of scrap text weight paper on the desk so I started a sketch of a mermaid. Why a mermaid you ask? Well, I am in this Facebook group where you are supposed to make a mermaid a month for a year..and I have yet to make one specifically for that. So here she is!
If you are actually here reading my blog post then you deserve a special gift. If you like this Curly Mermaid and you would like to make something with her...here is a link to my downloadable sketch.
The sketch is by no means perfect. The line weights are a bit wonky in places. But feel free to use it as a coloring page or in your mixed media. Of course...please give credit if you post it or video it...to not do that would be hurtful to me.
Thanks for visiting my blog and please leave me a comment so I know you were here!
