Day 1

So since I'm not very good at keeping up with my blog I decided to take on a challenge to blog every day in September. I'm not sure what I'll talk about all the time, but I just want to have something posted every day to start a habit of doing it.

So today I thought I'd take you through the process of my latest painting, Paint the World.

Here's the first stage. I just spread some paint on the canvas with no real rhyme or reason. 

Next I used some stencils I had lying on my desk to add a little more color.

On to finger painting. This part was just fun and messy.

A final touch of some metallic paint.

Now I just picked out some parts of the background that I really liked and I painted around them.

I added an alphabet stencil to the large circle, and then painted the leaves and flower. 

Here I used a stencil again to create the dots and i added some ink dripage to the flower stem.

Here's my final painting. The words painted on were just something I came up with when working in my journal one day. 

Well that's it for today. I hope you enjoyed that little trip through my creative process.
