Studio Friday - Playtime!

This week for Studio Friday we were to have fun...doodle....make a mess...free flow....with our drawing implement in our mouths? Geez, I don't know about this one. I thought this was supposed to be fun, not fraught with anguish. Where do I begin?
  1. My doodles on a good day are linear, overly controlled and uptight.
  2. An inventory of my art supplies is pathetic...paint pens are dried up....tossed my wee watercolors pallet in a clutter clearing frenzy....cannot find a paint brush that isn't more suitable for painting woodwork...oh and chalk pastels in the mouth, blehhhh!
  3. Cool, found a brand new tin of Caran D'Ache colored pencils stashed away. Pretty colors, yipeeee!
  4. Flat on the table or hanging on the wall? Either way I couldn't put enough pressure to get a good line. And I have a huge psychological hang up about pencils with teeth marks in them...super ick.
  5. I was just about to resort to using the ugly coral lipstick that was a free gift with purchase when I found a few markers that weren't past their prime.

Consider me stretched! And fully aware of how pitiful my selection of art supplies truly is, sigh.

I love this! You did a great job -- but take yourself supply shopping, girl-i-o! You need to be rolling in the stash like the rest of us. ;)
