Creative Diversion

I don't know one artistic/crafty person that only does just one thing. They all dabble in several creative mediums.

I am no exception.

Lately I have felt the need to paint. I had talked to my brother who explained one of his techniques to me that he teaches in his art class.

Cut a piece of board, or use a canvas board. Schmere a mess of spackle on the board and use different objects to cut designs into the spackle. Let it dry, seal it, and paint!!!! My brother used acrylic paints for his spackle creations, I used the tubes of craft acrylic paint, to see if I liked it, before I invested in some good quality acrylic paint.

Welp - guess what.... I love this!! This is a great form of expression and good therapy too. You can't make a mistake. If you don't like it, paint over it. How cool is that! My brother gifted me with a box full of paint, and I can't wait to start exploring more.

What art do you like to or have you wanted to explore?

p.s. - i'll be posting a how to on this technique next week :)
