Hello, zine friends, and welcome to the second half of the month! For today’s activity we have…
Try Something New: Write/Draw with Something New
Of course, by new, I mean new-to-you. If you’ve never painted with water colours or never written with a fountain pen. Pastels, paints, gel pens, watercolour pencils, so on and so forth.
On the bigger scale of things, it’s about getting you a safe step outside of your comfort zone to enjoy having a to at something new.
Now this is the embarrassing part where I tell you what I intended to do and why I didn’t… 😦
I have used watercolours before (in school art class when I was about seven), but what I wanted to do is get one of these cool pallet things and a water brush pen (I’ve definitely never used one of those) to have a go at some writing and some painting.
Don’t they look cool?
So that was my intention for today… but then the combination of time, money, shipping times, my foggy memory, so on and so forth. Yeah. All the excuses.
I am sorry. I’ve played with all of the various art supplies I do have, so it wouldn’t be new. I do hope you had a chance to try out something new today or, at least, have some fun zine time.
If you did, let me know in the comments.
