Imperfection holds quite a bit of joy, I think. Practice doesn’t always make perfect, and that’s okay. Actually, it’s more than okay – it’s part of being human. Machines make “perfect”: people make art.
Making art and craft is always awesome, but that is not always true for the tools, supplies or materials you get. And boring supplies are not as fun to work with, right? Some are just plain crap, and should be tossed at once… though they often linger in drawers and boxes instead of being trashed (or even better, given a new home at a local flea market). But when you do find awesome supplies, I think that is something to share and celebrate. Hence the post about pink dymo tape, and today, a post about a few new green watercolours I bought – with artist quality! Artist quality is more expensive, but has more pigment and therefore is richer to paint with. Yum!
I bought Green olive, Oxide of Chromium, Sap green & Payne’s gray and decided to make a test/evidence page while opening up the tiny coloring boxes. I went to my square spiral bound journal and started adding fields of color from each box.
Watercolours is a must have when you journal, and if you haven’t tried it yet I encourage you to do so.
I think they’re awesome art supplies!
