Tree Swing Zentangle Sharpie & Bic Mark It Markers

This was a fun little doodle I did one night. I sketched the tree, girl and swing lightly, then, after I colored the ropes, I played with some new zentangle patterns I learned recently. This is one of my first zentangle doodles, and I had a lot of fun with it. This is a combination of sharpies and bic mark it markers, which can be purchased here.

Mommy’s little artist

11 Dec

This is my little man painting with watercolors. I love how much he loves art and creating it. He always experiments with colors, always mixing stuff, pouring everything out on to the paper watching it all mix together. I’m one proud mommy!

Organized The Art Supplies

11 Dec

I really like the look of combining different textures and colors in my doodles and I don’t always do a lot of planning for my pictures, so having access to all of the supplies makes things easier, but also a bit overwhelming. In the past, I have tried a few different things, but none have really worked out the way I needed it to. Either there wasn’t enough space on the surface I was working on, or everything was jumbled, and I couldn’t find what I needed. Other times I would settle and use something else, then find what I should have used in the bottom of a mess of art supplies.

I have finally figured out the perfect way to organize the art supplies. I’m so excited. Not only have I got the best art space I’ve had yet, but I finally found a use for the old coke bottle crate that’s just been hanging on the wall in the garage.

Having all of my art supplies in different ziploc bags crammed in a box has been driving me crazy for years. I like to use different combinations of supplies for my pictures and now I don’t have to worry about digging around to find everything. Also, nothing is rolling off of the table while I’m trying to switch things up.

I was talking to my mom about my dilemma, and she suggested I use this old CocaCola crate. I immediately loved the idea, but the bottom has gaps between the slats and things could easily fall out.

For the very thin items, I used small glass jars that fit perfectly in the cubicles, and for the larger items I cut down solo cups, put them in the cubes, and stood my stuff up in them. You’d never know by looking at it.

I am in artist heaven!
