My weakness is books! (and sweets, but that's for another day) I Love Books! can't get enough of them, as my poor wallet can attest. I have a wonderful selection of art books and feel the need to buy everything that comes out. There are colored pencil books that I have had for years, without doing a single exercise in them!
I have been doing mixed media paintings for a little while now, ever since I discovered it. Before that I was making ACEOs which I still try to fit in. Now I am starting to see assemblages online and really want to try this too. Oh, there are so many things to do, how can anyone be bored?
And if I had more time, I would go back to sculpting dolls, which I was doing many years ago. Back then, there really was no instruction on how to make your own polymer clay dolls, and I wasn't very good at figuring it out.
Yesterday,I picked up some books at my library on painting your own fabric, as I have some ideas in mind for my art. Stay tuned!
I ordered a book called Mixed Media Self Portraits and it should be on my doorstep any day now, as well as Art Journals and Creative Healing. My collection keeps growing :-)
Now I must get back to work, I spend way too much time on my computer.
