Anyways, I am here now! With some things to share! :D :D :D
I ended last week on a very productive note! (Which worked out because I had some family come into town last minute to stay the weekend.) A few people online had mentioned to me that I ought to try working with a light box of some kind... and I had thought about it once or twice before but I never got any further than THINKING about it... Haha!
I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to put one of these together... All I used was a piece of foam-core, artists tape, and a piece of wax paper. My friend, Karine, had already made one for herself... and I've seen various ones online- so I had a good idea of what I was doing to begin with. Here are a couple images I took inside the box...
As expected, I am having some trouble with the light I am using. It makes my pictures look warmer than what it actually is in real life, so I am having to edit that a little bit afterwords. But other than the temperature of the lighting, it works great! The light is distributed really nicely and this works great for my current needs! :D
As for what I am currently working on.... I started some pumpkins! :D :D :D
I am really happy with these... and I am diving into Autumn minis HEAD FIRST! Fall is truly my favorite season... I actually like to think that if I was a flower I would bloom in the Fall. :)
Anyways, these little guys are currently being painted and I am also making some JACK O LANTERNS. I am trying really hard to make them more realistic that last year's... so wish me luck! :D
I also want to show you guys this-
I saw this quote on a blog the other day (here) and it just kinda stuck with me. I thought I needed to hear (well, read) these words seeing as how I have been in an on-going rut. I painted this on a canvas and it is now on my wall! Nothing special, just a giant sign that I can look at and read when I need to. I thought there might be some more people out there who could use these words.
Thanks for stopping by!
