We're half way through July already, and summer has finally arrived on the "wet coast". My office/studio is unbearably hot after noon. I've had a bit of time to take Joanne Sharpe's on-line Letter Love Class, and I'm lovin' it!
Art Projects for Kids is a fabulous blog filled with, yeah, art projects for kids. I'm just an old kid, so I like lots of them. And as wax crayons seem to be a current craze of mine, I thought I'd try the one on an abstract flower vase. Fun!
Do you ever suffer creative block? I not only suffer from it, but I'm fascinated by it. A post about crayons on Heidiology resonated with me as a possible cure. For me, the fear of the blank page is rooted partially in perfection and waste, so the idea of taking the cheapest supplies, crayons and scrap paper, and creating something with them made sense to me. Heidi suggests if you can't think of what to create, make a scribble and colour in the spaces. The absolute freedom from expectations it brings is wonderful.
