There's something really exciting about negative painting. It's like doing an acrylic painting backwards. It's a bit tedious and requires a lot of care, as you can tell by my jagged edges. Some of the heart shapes no longer look like hearts. I did a little practice using photos of bokeh. It's a bit more challenging than I'd thought.
Speaking of art journals and sketchbooks, some of the journals in the shop are taking holiday trips this year! The value of the Canadian dollar has taken such a sharp dive lately, and I'm sure it's related. If you live in another country, you could really clean up at a time like this. If you've been eyeing something in the shop for a while, now is the time. It's like a huge sale during which we can BOTH benefit! :D
I'm taking a break for a week to catch up with family stuff! Hopefully it won't be a creative wasteland, but things don't always go according to plan. I'll be back next weekend!
Hello! I'm Melissa, and here you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of an artful life. Won't you join me?
