Today I am sharing a new 15 Minutes of Mixed Media™ video where I experiment with darker colors. It isn't that I don't work with dark colors in my journal, but they usually don't fill such a large portion of my page.
As I worked, I tried to let those colors be, when all I wanted to do was smear a lot of white paint over the top of it all and start again...but that would defeat the purpose of the exercise. To stretch, to experiment and to grow as an artist. Limiting myself to a handful of supplies creates an even bigger challenge when working with the clock ticking, but it has proven to be an effective way for me to learn my limitations and to even gain a few new insights into what works for me as an artist.
I hope that you take away a similar experience when creating with the timer ticking in the background. Remember that the exercises are meant to be just that- a way to push forward and learn new things in the process. Happy Creating.
