There is nothing like a catchy blog title and this is nothing like one! Ha!
I’ve been trying, over the course of the last year or so, to not just pin things over on Pinterest but do something with those pins. Whether that be making something like a scrapbook page or a card or a weaving but to do something with the inspiration that came along with the ‘pin’.
I started a board almost a year ago with the intention of trying to draw, paint, create using the pin as my inspiration point. I didn’t do so well with that.
Then other day when I was putting all the December Daily albums back in their box I found a stash of note book/journals from a few years back. One of these had a coloured pencil drawing on every other page. I looked at all those doodles and couldn’t believe in that year, I think it 2007, I had embraced the watercolour and coloured pencils so much.
I was inspired by my own attempts at drawing and thought it would be great to make time each week to pick up a pencil or paint and try some art. So I started a new board with a variety of media from paint to string art to collage and I am going to make at least one of these a week.
They could be simple or complicated but I am going to do something every week.
I started with the watercolour pencils because I can do that while watching t.v and they are minimal, just two items the paper and the pencils.
And the other thing I am going to try and do is perfect the piece of artwork. So if I don’t succeed at the first try I want to try it again. I know that’s just so unlike me. But there it is.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
