Artsy Adventures


Lately I’ve gotten that itch I think a lot of artists get, to try something new. 

I used to paint with acrylics a lot but trying to keep brushes and paint, as well as the resulting mess, out of the hands of little ones put that aside. As much as I like designing digitally (and I do!) I’m a traditional artist at heart! I love my markers but I want to mix it up more.

I want to mix my mediums and see what happens.

I’ve gotten myself some liquid watercolors and watercolor paper. I have 2 new-to-me brands of markers to play with. I’ve had pencils that need to be played with.

My hubs, Mr. Some Odd Girl, has put forth a monthly art challenge between us (he wants to make it a competition, I just want to have a fun challenge… men) so I’m taking that opportunity to break out a bit and scratch the itch. I’m going to be sharing some of this on Fridays so I hope you don’t mind my Artsy Adventures.

      He’s actually starting his own blog. When he’s ready I’ll let you know the URL 🙂

    Fun! I’m starting to mix it up a little more at the moment too, trying to force myself out of my marker comfort zone. 🙂
    Look forward to seeing Mr Some Odd Girl’s blog!

    I’m so excited to see what you create!! I, too, have the artsy itch. In the later winter/ early spring I get this itch!! Right now, I’m working on a grungy mixed-media piece. It is only in the beginning phases by I’m excited!  Thanks for the inspiration!!!!

    So glad to hear about artsy adventures. You taught me so much with copics and looking forward to another art path. New markers? Tell me more! LOL

    Can’t wait to see everything! I too love to use different mediums but my issue isn’t keeping little ones out of my creativity mess, it’s keeping my 2 cats out of it, lol! I am excited to see how your competition between you and Mr. Some Odd Girl pan out 😉
