But I sold one of my mirrors already on Saturday! So happy ....
Here's some things I've been doing in my art journal:
I had some fun in Photoshop with this one. It's a sketch I did in my journal with coloured pencils. I scanned it and pasted it over one of my paintings-backgrounds, and then played a bit with a quote from Bhartrhari. There are so many possibilities to play around in Photoshop, I haven't explored even half of them.
This is just a quick sketch with watercolour pencil. The paper in my journal is not really good for that, it just dries so quick before I can spread it out. For the background I wrote part of the poem in watercolour pencil, and I had meant for it to dissolve in water, but it didn't, no matter how often I went back over it. This is clearly something that I should do on watercolour paper. I glued (part of) the poem from Rod McKuen over it. I am so in love with his work, I can just keep reading those poems over and over again ...
And this is a graphite sketch. Will probably turn it into a card, or use it for a calendar ...
Thanks so much for all the lovely comments on my Friday-post! Remember I explained the technique with the geometrical figures? Well, Joyce from Joyful Art Stuff tried it out already. Look at this:
Sooo, if you have tried it out too, I would LOVE to see it! And I'll show it on my blog! Just send me the picture or a link.
And now I have one question for you, maybe someone can help me with that. I would like to start selling my paintings online, but I have no idea how to pack it. I asked at the post office and they told me to just put lots and lots of bubble wrap around it. But still ... They're a little bit my babies, I wouldn't want anything to happen to them ... I know some of you sell online, even very big paintings sometimes. Do you have any tips, do you use the post or do you use a courier service, how do you pack it, have you had any "accidents" already? Etc ..... So if anyone can help me with this, I'd be very grateful :-)
That's it for now. I'll be back on Wednesday with a new Etsy-shop-promotion. It's going great, check out the links on the promotion-page, lots of goodies to see!
Thanks so much for being here, hope you're having a wonderful day / evening / night ... ♥
