Quick Play...

I was in the mood for some more 'instant gratification' art so I played with some acrylic paint and plastic wrap.  I got the idea from this "One Minute Muse". It's actually not as instant as I'd like because I did have to walk away and wait while the paint dried, which of course takes longer because of the plastic wrap...

I realize I should have watered down the paint more so I would have achieved the same sort of washy effect as the woman in the video. I'll have to try this again.

However, once I started adding some black and white doodles to it I began to really enjoy the look I was getting. Certainly not instant any more, but the doodling stage was a lot of fun!

Have I mentioned that I can't just watch TV any more? It drives my husband crazy, but I have to have something else in my hands, whether it's some hand stitching, doodling or a new jigsaw puzzle app on my iPad (that I've become a bit obsessed with of late).







































Maybe it's my life as a foster mom to future dog guide puppies, but that word POOP jumps off the page at me (x2). LOL  Maybe I shouldn't have turned the page upside down as I wrote "doodle" all around the border of the page. ;o)

  3. This is very cool! It looks almost like a map (and I saw "poop" too! I have two dogs. LOL). I had to stop doing things while we watched TV, because I'd get engrossed and then ask my husband a million times, "What happened? Who is that again? Where are they going?" :)

    1. Thanks Kathryn. I must admit I do sometimes get to the end of an episode and realize I don't know what happened. LOL Oh well, it's just TV right?
