Feeling angsty, I sat down to do a very simple card. The cause of this stress is hard to quantify, and so, it feels unreasonable and foolish. I should be happy, dang it! I shouldn't be wanting so much. Nolwenn<3 sent me home with a few interesting art supplies, and I really wanted to try them out. Particularly the embossing powder, as I've been putting off trying some for at least a year now.
Time flies, and all that.
The real therapeutic part of the little art piece is the scribbling. Handwriting adds a lot of interest in visual art as well, so it's like a double victory!
Sometimes I wonder what my life would have been like if I'd followed the trailblazers and emerging trends, and studied to be an art therapist. For the common people, not just the wealthy. And then I remember that I'm a bit of a nihilist, a lot of a cynic and don't have very good coping skills, myself. Blind leading the blind?
Well, here's an update: we're going to test out some new internet in as soon as a week. With a faster upload speed, I should be able to comfortably stream on Twitch, and then we can gather together and chat! And play! And do creative things! Together! There's a huge learning curve I will have to navigate. Also, all of these feelings in which I still so badly want a separate room for this. I don't have half a million dollars though, so I guess we'll just have to wait on that!
Hello! I'm Melissa, and here you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of an artful life. Won't you join me?
