I'm using acrylic paint in my journal this week, because this paper just doesn't give watercolour justice.
As an aside: Some of my video posts are going to be a bit broken or strange because of a music issue. I specifically search out royalty-free music for my videos, either from Incompetech or FMA. Since youtube uses robots to brush off all involvement on the issue of copyright, one song that I occasionally use is being "claimed" by some company. I worried that it was an issue with FMA, that maybe the artist of the song isn't really the artist at all, except that this company claims that this song is actually three completely different songs. How can one song match four titles? Well, it probably can't and the whole situation is probably a scam claim to make quick cash.
Because I can't easily replace the audio or even mute it, some of my videos are broken, deleted or hidden. Probably forever. Sorry about that. I won't stop making videos, but I will probably stick to Incompetech from now on. Or complete silence. Not even original audio is safe, according to this account of a company claiming rights to the incidental recording of birds in a yard. Yes, a person could record my voice, upload it to youtube's robots and claim ownership of my voice to make money off of me, if he wanted. Great system.
