Well, my future nephew posted on his blog yesterday about this thing called Index-Card-A-Day challenge that was going on through the summer. I’m at a point where I could use a simple challenge that has me doing something creative that I don’t have to think too much about. I don’t remember reading about any particular size, but all the ones I’ve seen done so far have been on the 3×5 size cards. That should be easy enough to accomplish.
So, I’ve assembled my artist’s kit:
my bag of tricks
Included in my art kit are a set of glitter markers, a set of Crayola Color Sticks (saw them at Office Max, they were a new item and I had to have them — supposed to be kind of like a colored pencil, I think they are Crayola’s attempt at pastels), a set of Crayola Pip Squeak markers and colored pencils, Staedler Watercolor Pencils and Crayons, pastels, Staedler pencils and my technical drawing kit. I look forward to trying out the watercolor crayons. You draw with them then go over them with a damp brush. The watercolor pencils I believe you are actually supposed to dampen the tip. I’d rather be able to draw then run a damp brush over it. I may try that anyway.
So last night I did my first doodle:
I had a good idea, but it’s been awhile since I did anything visually artistic. Today’s attempt should be better 🙂
