Where has the time gone? Always on my "to do" list is update blog! I thought I would share with you some fun art projects I've been working on.
We have been working on a lot of new items for Miss Alayneeah (the Etsy shop). Of course there will be some Christmas stuff coming as well as home decor and crafting supplies. It's been a fun process to work on these projects.
Sometimes I feel like I have many creative personalities. By this I mean I have so many things that I enjoy doing and many styles that come along with those things. Do you ever feel this way? In the past I've tried to contain it to just one "style". Ya for an artist/crafter with ADD tendencies that just doesn't work! So I figured why fight it! I can have and enjoy more then one style. Why not, right?!
With those many styles comes the "other" projects I work on after the shop stuff! Don't get me wrong I love working on the shop stuff, but I find I need some creative play time to just do whatever. For those times I tend to turn to my sketching, painting, and art journals. This is why you will see such a different style in my shop versus my other creative outlets.
Another fun art project I continue to work on are the mini pieces I started over the summer. They vary in size from 1 inch up to about 4 inches. I explain about it here. I've continued to work on them between everything else. Above is a "twinchie" I recently finished. Also over the summer I joined a few new Facebook groups that share projects they are working on. I've met some wonderful people through doing this. I've also been inspired through the sharing of their work.
So when a new group was started it made it a bit easier for me to join. I've always enjoyed drawing, but have always struggled with people and faces. Over the years I have always loved the faces and girls that have been created in the mixed media and art journaling world. Have you seen Dina Wakley's work? I love her style among many others.
So onto the fun project that I am doing. I met Tracy Scott in one of the facebook groups over the summer. She has recently put together a new group to focus on faces. You create 100 faces and share them as you go along. You can search facebook for the group under "studio7ARTacademy". It's a very fun and supportive group!
So far I've created and shared 4 faces. It's been a fun way to learn and figure out my own style. I really enjoy the time I take to work in my art journals! This photo here is my first face of 100! As of now I have 96 to go! I can't wait to see the faces as they progress! It will be fun to look back and see what emerges and changes as I work through the project.
So what fun art projects are you working on? I would love to see them or learn more! I love learning and seeing others work! I hope we can all have the "me time" we need no matter what it is!
Have a creative day! Kim
