A week or so ago I had the brain wave to start the Cuppa With Friends Project
and combine drawing people's mugs and cups with the Index Card A Day Challenge
well I have to say it has been a bit of a roller coaster
not a bad roller coaster, but one of those really thrilling, mad roller coasters
my thought processes have gone something like this...
|Jaz Higgins from Art By Jaz|
What if no one sends me cups and mugs...
What if I get 50 million and my inbox crashes...
There are so many awesome ones being sent through already
who knew I had so many friends...
Oooo look at that one.... I would kind of like that one to own
or that one... or that one... dear god they are all amazing
wonder if I can get ones like them on ebay...
I have now been cruising ebay for 20 mins looking for any of them and they are not there... need to get off the computer
wonder if they have any of them at the Tea Centre
I'm almost out of Japanese Lime
maybe I should take a trip to get some more
|Paula Kumert From Happysnappy|
No I don't need any more tea, or tea cups
what I need is a cup of tea... what sort of tea will I drink
maybe I should vary the type of tea for every painting
no that is mad... just put the kettle on and start drawing/painting
what if my cards are rubbish... what if I insult people.
maybe 20 mins is mad... I should allocate an hour
who needs sleep after all
actually I could go a nanna nap
I will have some chocolate... where did I hide it again
that's right the laundry room... which is brilliant I have to say
because no one braves the great wall of washing but me
While I am there I should put on a load of washing
|Mo Allan at Twinkle Toes 2day|
Washing on, tea in hand and chocolate scarfed I am ready
I will do this one, no, that one
just grab one... and set timer... 20 mins
get drawing and painting... what on earth is that buzzing
20 mins is up already ... are you kidding me
ok 30 mins might be a better amount of time...
and I had better start with some simple ones to warm up and get used to working this quickly
Not too bad all things considered...
what is that buzzing now... did I set the alarm on my phone again by accident
have to ask Phantom how to fix it... why can't I work out phone alarms... I am so rubbish at technology
oh right it is the washer... load's done
excellent because I need more chocolate ...
Seriously my brain has been a whirlwind all week
a fabulous , magnificent whirlwind and I am into it big time now... having a great time...
I have used watercolour and micron pen, of course
gouache and acrylic paints, some bits of collage
and for Tam's which I completed this morning
I used acrylic paint and watercolors, micron pen and twinks
onto handmade paper that I pasted onto the card
which gives it an effect I am kind of liking very much...it gives it a very soft feel
which is quite exciting... can't wait to get started on my next to tell you the truth
so if you have any mugs or cups that you want to send get cracking on it
details are at the top of the page and I have embraced the whole madness
and have decided there is no such thing as too many mugs or cups
I will be blogging about my week's cups on a Wednesday
so maybe yours will pop up next week...
hugest heartfelt thanks to everyone who is getting behind this and being part of the fun
I am truly loving it all... xx
PS I am also linking this up over at Artists Play Room where others are joining in the fun
and painting up mugs and cups as well... xx
My last two posts have been these...
Sunday Mugs ...
