Medium Madness

Hey look at that it hasn’t been months between posts…yet 😉

I spent the evening last night painting and playing in the studio with a bunch of new goodies.
I recently went on a mini medium shopping spree to stock up the studio on some awesome Golden & Liquitex paints and mediums; partly for the Art classes I’m teaching and partly because it gave me a reason to bring in some super high quality goodies.

I picked up more Golden Brand Fluid and High Flow paints which I have enjoyed working with in the last year. I also grabbed some acrylic medium staples like crackle paste, fiber paste, glass beads, a variety of gels and TONS more.

Here are a few pieces I’m currently working on and some in progress shots

Well back to it, if you’d like to know some of the mediums used, feel free to comment.
Cheers,
Amanda

Market, bookings & new paint

I blame WordPress.
Why you ask?
Well I set up that whole reminder to blog feature whenever the last time I posted was and it’s yet to remind me.

OK lousy excuse I know but really you already know I’m terrible at this so you should come to expect it by now 😉

Where I’ve been:

As I’m sure you’ve guessed the local Farmer’s market is well underway so every Thursday I’ve been busy selling my hand painted/ hand made jewellery there and working on the custom orders that have come from it the rest of the week.

Also I have a baby who hates to be more than a few inches away from me and a 2 1/2yr old that’s always “exploring” something so my hands are full with life in general but it’s all good!

Despite these two sweet and incredibly cute challenges. I have been busy booking up the rest of my year.
Next Saturday I’ll be attending the Bon Accord Harvest Days Market.

Then the following Saturday Aug 16 I’ll be set up for the Downtown Sale in Fort Sask
and then, I’ll be celebrating our 10th wedding Anniversary on the 21st while working at the market (unless we decide to skip 😉
In terms of bookings I also have two Christmas marketplaces booked for 3 days at the end of November so I imagine I’ll be busy stocking up on Art & Jewellery for those events too.

Speaking of making Art,
I’ve discovered some new paint pens. Liquitex has put out a line of Professional paint markers that I am dying to try and are currently sitting in my digital shopping cart waiting for me to buy them 🙂 soon my precious ones soon lol [if you’ve tried em, let me know what you think of them!]

I’m hoping they work well because I think it’ll be just the thing I need to finish off my latest couple of pieces.

Anyway I should grab some sleep before baby’s next feeding.
Have a good night and I’ll try to talk again sooner…If it makes you feel less neglected, my close friends & I talk even less frequently.

Cheers,
Amanda
