So my last day came and went and I am now officially retired! Woohoo! Now what? I am finding myself with lots of time on my hands, but I have plenty to do. I just recently learned about bullet journaling and I am in love. It is such a logical way to stay organized and actually get things done. I just officially started my journal on Saturday, so I will keep you informed about how I do. So far, I am finding it really easy to stay focused and stay on track by using this method.
Today is the first official Art Day with the new plan for this blog. I have been working with charcoal and pen recently and here are a couple of sketches I have done.
I seem to be in an animal phase, especially crows. I just love crows!
I have also been watching You Tube videos from The Frugal Crafter.
She has about 88 videos of watercolor painting and she explains as she works. I am really learning a lot about how to use watercolors–which I have been afraid of up until now, but with her explanations and demonstrations, I now feel like maybe I can do this. I am on video 73 right now, but I have ordered my watercolor card blanks, my travel palette and I have many brushes. So I am ready to jump right in and try it out by following her videos. Seems like an easy way to learn a new skill.
I will add a link to her You Tube page here. She is silly and talks a lot, but she really knows her stuff and I have learned so much just watching her videos. Go on over the her channel and watch a few. See if I am not right!
That just about wraps up this Monday–Art Day! Tomorrow is Pinterest Day where I try either a craft or a recipe from pinterest and let you know if it turned out as promised. I think tomorrow, I will try a recipe. This weekend, I will try a craft out and take pictures as I go along for next week. Thanks for reading. I hope you come back.
