I have also dipped a toe in painting. I signed up for Donna Downey's "Canvas Create" in 2012 and I finally got around to trying a couple. Just like journaling I have a long way to go, but it's fun learning and trying new things. Here are a couple of the ones I've attempted. I started out trying to use the cheap acrylic paint you can get at Michaels or Hobby Lobby .. but I really noticed the difference when I let go of the money for the Goldens Fluid Acrylic that Donna uses. It's not cheap, but you get such a vibrant color from it and it just seems more workable.
I've also been busy with taking Christy Tomlinson's "Behind the Art". I'll share some of those projects in a future post .. which I promise won't be 3 months from now :) Thanks for coming by and looking.
Happy Crafting !!
