Crafty Blog Update!

I have a love hate relationship with being busy.  I love the rush, I love the doing, I love being paid to do what I love...however, I hate how I get behind with other things in life.  -You don't even want to know how much laundry I have to do right now!  I also don't like that I can't always share what I'm working on yet...sometime because it's contractually not able to be released yet, and sometimes just because I haven't edited the pics and had a chance to write up a blog post.  So for now here's a couple a pic of the start of one of the projects I will be sharing soon.  I really loved how this turned out & I can't wait to share more of it with you!

Painting Away!

I've been busy working on a bunch of projects that I can't share about yet and really needed a "create stuff for me" break so I started some background pages in one of my art journals. 

This first one started off like this....

Erin Bassett - Art Journal - Step1 - WritingI had been testing out writing with some new ink using a paint brush.  I knew I was going to paint over it, so I just scribbled it on there.

And here's how it turned out...

Erin Bassett - Art Journal Background1You can still see a few bits of the ink, but I covered up most of it.  :)


Here's the other ones I did...

That last one started off yellow & orange.  I hated it.  So again I painted over it.  This art journal is going to weigh 20 pounds by the time it's done.  ;)

By the way, I'm loving the size of this journal.  It's 11" x 15" watercolor it's huge compared to most of my other art journals, but there's something freeing with going bigger.

Just a reminder....the end of the month is fast approaching...which is when the early bird discount will end for the online event, True Scrap 3!  Save money by enrolling now!!  I'll be teaching a fun mixed media class there...check out my sneak peeks here.  :)
