more foolery in my visual journal. i’m in ashley goldberg’s paint plan play class where pattern making & background painting have been the focus.
i thought i’d share what i’ve been doing in the class, that i first mentioned HERE.
sort of wish i would have planned better and got a less business looking planner. but really all i wanted to do was punch holes in the paper i’m painting and insert into the rings. punch insert punch insert repeat.
i don’t keep a planner or make lists, although occasionally i enjoy jotting down ideas on a To Don’t list. so this concept is foreign to me.
all the paper in the planner is plain white cardstock which is what ashley recommended and since i had a stack sitting around i used it. so glad i did as i would never have thought to paint on it.
pattern making is messy fun. i’m a fan.
pam gave me a big paint by number scrap last time she was here. i’m a little punch crazy so whatever my eye lands on that’s punchable is getting punched. (think will have my 5th graders evaluate the soundness of that last sentence and rewrite)
suzanne, that means your horsey postcard from iceland is going in my planner.
i’m going to use my planner to capture all loose floating cwazy cwap that’s worthy of being saved. i probably won’t do any writing.
in amsterdam last year i bought some gold gouache that i was certain i’d not use much, but it was only a few euros so i got it. ashley makes gold paint look cool. i think it’s fascinating how trend setters have a way of making formerly uninteresting things appealing. ya know? now if she’d just set a trend for my fugly black planner i could learn to love it.
happy glorious sunday to you! hope you’re getting up to something good in your studios or in your travel lives. do share below if you feel like it.
over and out from moss cottage, where all the women are strong, all the cats are good lookin, and all the ideas are above average. xo.
