Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
I'm anticipating a busy weekend, but I wanted to wish you a
Here is a bunny I sculpted out of Paperclay.
When he dried, I painted him with acrylics and
then glued all of the pieces together.
I had never tried Paperclay before, but I really like it!
This little guy is VERY light, but still feels durable.
It accepted the paint and glue well and
I plan on using it again for some more projects soon. :)
I hope all of your projects are hopping along and
that you have the opportunity to go outside and sniff some flowers! :)
I have never been a fan of resolutions....why wait until the New Year to make a change? However, I am a firm believer in setting goals for each new year. I enjoy the feeling of striving for something!
So, for 2016, I have set some creativity goals for myself:
~Be creative everyday. It could be a doodle session, or sitting down and creating a new piece of art, but something has to happen. Even if it is for just a few moments.
~Master some new-to-me hand embroidery stitches.
~Watercolors weekly. I'm going to commit to getting my paints and brushes out at least once a week and painting!
~Experiment with embellishments. I want to try out some paper clay and beading on my new art pieces.
~Continue down the printing path. I enjoy the printmaking process, and want to push my techniques further.
What are your goals for the New Year?
Have you made any creative goals?
Maybe it's time to take a class, either online or in person.
Maybe you need to fan your feathers a bit and try something new!
Find a way to get creative and stay creative every day!
