I am in a bit of a slump this week. Too many things that I need to do and not enough time to do them. Which is not conducive for my creativity.
As a result, when I decided to give myself a few hours of art time, nothing came out. Do you know that feeling? When your head is full of ideas but you can't get anything down on paper? I had made a whole list of things I wanted to try out, but one after the other didn't go as I wanted and in the end I felt more like screaming ....
The only thing I finished was a sketch I did a while ago and printed out on watercolour paper to give it a bit of colour.
Might use this for my calendar, that I also have to start working on if I want to get it finished in time ...
Meanwhile I've been making ipod- and iphonecases for my Redbubble shop, and also some ipadcases.
Here are some examples:
Remember the paintings I made for Summer of Color? These?
I've put them up for sale now in my etsyshop. Free shipping worldwide!
Did you know the 29 faces-challenge is about to begin again? On the first of September! Head over to Ayala Art's blog and sign up for it if you want. It really is a lot of fun. Not sure yet whether I'll participate, probably not since I can't do the whole month. Which makes me kinda sad, 'cos I've been doing it since the start last year. But, well, I need to prioritize a bit when I'm short on time.
One last thing: a friend who bought 2 of my prints sent me pictures of them framed. She goes around recycleshops and searches for great-looking frames. Here are the 2 she bought:
I LOVE how my prints look in those frames! And what a great idea to search for frames in that kind of shops. Good for the environment, and a unique look. Thanks Tina!
Well, that's it. It doesn't look as if I did much this week, and that's true, at least artwise. Hopefully next week will be better .... (although my taxes are still not finished :-p)
Thanks so much for being here, I hope your day's been good so far, and your weekend will be bright and happy! Linking this as always to Paint Party Friday. ♥ ♥ ♥
