January 23, 2022 Mandala

 Since ye olde pandemic started, the hubby and I have turned our Sunday afternoons into creative night. We’ve tried several things like following acrylic painting tutorials, paint pouring, and quilling. Our most  frequent projects, at least lately, have had us following Procreate tutorials on Youtube. 

Tonight we followed this mandala tutorial by ArtWithFlo. I followed her basic starting shapes and then went my own way with it. Here’s my results. It was the most fun I’ve had arting in awhile. I tend to beat myself up because drawing isn’t exactly something that comes naturally to me. Usually when I have the patience to really put in the time to work on a drawing, I don’t have the time. And of course, when I have the time, I don’t have the patience for it. Making a mandala styled art piece was just pure relaxing. So much so that I am going to try to make one most days, even if it’s just a smaller one just for me.

 Today’s mandala. I really like the way this one turned out. 

Paint pouring

  I was offered this Aureuo paint pouring kit (affiliate link) free to review. Wanted to try paint pouring, so of course I snatched it right up. The kit came with 4 colors of pre-mixed paints, silicone, stirring sticks, gloves, a disposable drop cloth, and one canvas.  As I am typing this, it costs about $20 at Amazon. I was pretty sure there was enough paint for more than one canvas, so we also used a canvas we already had to turn it into our at home paint night / date night project. I am kind of amazed at how fast and easy the basic “we’re newbies” first pours went.  I love our usual paint nights but drawing is not my strong suit, so I also get frustrated a lot. This was easy, fast, and I didn’t get frustrated once. There was even some leftover paint and silicone. The only cons for this specific kit: you’ll need to provide your own cups and varnish. We’re already buying more paint pouring supplies including another one of these kits specifically. Our fave part was taking a photo of

We lost our kitty today.  Cancer really sucks.
