As my friends would say, I'm obsessive about paint. I never realized this about myself. But whenever we get together to do art, I'm in a bit of a panic if I don't have paint with me. It would kind of be like if you didn't have your cell phone or keys with you (or whatever you can't live without.) Lost. That is the way I feel...
But today, in skipping around from blog to blog and doing some painting (yes, paint again) with the kids, I realized I have so much stuff I'm NOT using when I do art and ATCs. I just tend to stick with either painted or patterned paper backgrounds and minimal embellishments; and whatever is laying around on my desk. I made a mental list (and now a written one) of the things I want to use in the future. I'm going to get a drawer divider and put these things in it and ON my desk so they are more readily seen and I'll use them. So these are my immediate priority to use:
needle & thread
crayons & wrappers
clear page pebbles
Keep an eye out for creations with these items and if you don't see any, yell at me. What's on your list?
