- Mix oil paints with Turpentine (only need a little oil paint) lets say, around 1 tspn turps to tip of an Popsicle stick of oil paint.
- Pour onto water ( I have used a roller paint tray here) mixed gently to merge colours
- Lay paper on top of water and slowly pull up.
- Go forth and create, and remember... experiment... for to do is to learn!!
A few weeks ago I said I would do a blog on how to marble or add a dye surface to paper... So finally this is it!
2014 is here, so with the new year comes a few new workshops!
My aim this year is to make creativity accessible to everyone. To help people remove judgements of "oh I am not creative" or "I just can't to it right". To have a creative space that is welcoming, relaxing and available to all.
Being creative is about just being you... letting yourself relax. There is no wrong or right to creativity, I think it is just about being, feeling.. doing. Spending time with friends or having some alone time doing something creatively fun.
Sometimes our inner critic runs wild during these times, IGNORE IT. I would like to say I do this all the time, but realistically I don't. One of the beliefs I struggle with is because I work for myself and being creative is my bread and butter, I think I need to make everything pay! The times when I stop worrying about if the particular creative adventure I am on is going to put food on my table is the most enjoyable and productive. I am not saying the out come is perfect every time it is not, it is a process a step towards not letting let fear run my life. I think it is better not to have too many rules and too many predetermined ideas of an out come. What I have learnt is, like most things in life (and life it'self) creativity is not about a single piece you created how long it took, how it looks ... it is about a journey of creativeness. Lots of moments that build and blend together to create you !!
Creativity is not just about drawing, painting, sculpting etc.. it is about discovery, self discovery.
So with that said... This is what is new in 2014
Bringing your creativeness to life in 2014.
Recycle, Up-Cycle or Create something new, we have the space, bits and bobs and of course the creative know how to bring out all your creative and artist genius.
