Do not abandon yourselves to despair.
We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
-Pope John Paul II
We are the Easter people.
Yes, we are.
I have a simple Easter card for you today with a little fine art product that I'm absolutely in love with!
I saw this at our last Creative Arts Society meeting and I literally screamed when the lady demonstrated it.
When I was in college art classes, we worked with graphite a lot, and I always loved the look, but I hated how messy it was, so I sort of abandoned it after graduation.
This is the tiny, miracle art supply that has forever changed my life. Water soluble graphite from ArtGraf.
Stamps: Delightful Dozen, Inkadinkado bunny stamp Ink: Basic Black Paper: Watercolor Paper
LOOK HOW CUTE HE IS!!! What I did was I stamped the little bunny on copy paper and put it on my LightPad. Then I put the watercolor paper over it, and painted this in about five minutes with my AquaPainter and the graphite. Look at the difference between how black his little eye is and how light the grasses are - it's amazing! I have a serious art crush.
What you can't see is the SHIMMER. I tried nine ways to Easter Sunday to capture that with my camera, but no dice. But trust me, it's luminous and beautiful. I just have one word for this stuff.
