I bet that title grabbed your attention a bit LOL. Well I wanted to tell you about what I am doing...and today...yes...a guy noticed me...on Youtube! Nothing creepy:) It was Mike Deakin Art. You see, I said something a bit challenging to him about his dislike of purple (can you imagine NOT liking purple?) and it evolved into a little collaborative challenge between us. Of course I feel very excited about collaborating with him. I have wanted to do that ever since he started those cute Mission Inspiration collabs with other Youtube art creators. A bit sadly for me...he made that into a Facebook group with over 1000 people..so ANYONE can do it. But, this little challenge we are doing is fun too :) It is called Love/Hate challenge. You have to use a color you hate on an art journal page..but you can add a color you love as well. My color of most hatedness is brown. YUCK. I think I am too surrounded by it. Brown mountains, brown sand, brown houses, or tan or taupe or..you get the idea! So I tried to think of something beautiful that was brown...and I came up with a creature called the Desert Tortoise. The shell it carries around is just beautiful. It looks like enamel. So that became the focus of my page :) Isn't he cute?
Watch this video to see how I created him using collage and other media.
So what else have I been doing since I last wrote a blog post? Well more Index Card a Day of course. That will be going on every day until the end of July. Here are two videos encompassing 6 more index card art bits.
I also made a cool retro looking tag for Tag It Tuesday Facebook Group. I actually sanded the tag to make it more distressed looking...like old wood from the 50s. Very fun!
Coming up soon will be a video of larger mixed media canvas, more ICADs, the Pick a Stick Challenge, and another collaboration with a Youtube artist..so stay tuned :)
