Things I've Learned from Christy Tomlinson
WIP: 8x10 flat canvas panel Acrylic & Modeling Paste
Yellow is awesome! And yellow & grey is just beautiful.
I've been introduced to modeling paste & wondered why I haven't used it before.
It's okay if rub-ons & rubber stamps don't make a complete & perfect impression. Really, it is!
I'm using stuff I've had in my stash for the first time. Seriously, some of my cling stamps, embellishments & canvases were in the original packaging - for a year or two...
I must order more canvases stat! With the canvas shortage I'm looking for new surfaces to
beautify. I have some birdhouses I bought last summer & they have not been touched.
I've found a use for dried up baby wipes! They make awesome "paper towels" for cleaning brushes, stamps, fingers - all sorts of messes.
It has been liberating to be able to let go of the "perfectness" I feel should be in my art. If I mess up, I work with it. There's always gesso available as well :)
If you are looking for something to do, go join
. You won't be disappointed! As a matter of fact, I can't stop!
