But I really want to talk about the toadstool and coffee cup pages. Those were painted with acrylics. I've never painted with real acrylic paints before. (And by that I mean I HAVE painted with cheap craft acrylics.) I bought an inexpensive set in Atlanta (a birthday gift to myself), and I couldn't wait to try them out. You might notice that the toadstool is on a piece of paper that is glued into my sketchbook. Because I didn't know what I could do with this paint, and I was afraid that if I started painting directly in my sketchbook it might turn out terribly. But it didn't. So I cut that baby out and glued it in. High fives all around! The coffee cup was painted directly on the page, and I'm happy to report that this sketchbook (Moleskine Art Plus Sketchbook) held up beautifully to the paint.
So here's to adventures and experimenting with mediums! Now I'm off to play more with the acrylics!
