Do any of you have friends who are amazing artists? I do. *Cough cough, Ivy.* (This is Em🙂) If you are anything like me, when you see the art that these friends say are “not that great” or they “could be better,” you stare and gawk at the aforementioned art, wondering how they could create something so good when you can barely draw a stick figure. I’m with you.
The thing about art (at least with me,) is that most people tend to limit themselves to just one type of art, but in reality, art comes in so many forms! From canvas to clay, this post will be dedicated to the art that I, the ~not the best~ artist, have made, in many different (and unconventional) forms.
Some of the more common art
Okay, I know that I said I would dedicate this post to different types of art, but I think the art coming up next proves that even a mediocre artist (like me) can create great art.
#1: Canvas and paint (boring, I know, but I love this painting so much.)
#2: Pencil and paper-if I can do it, so can you!
#3: Clay (both polymer, or bakeable clay, and ‘normal’ clay)
#4: Watercolor ( Ivy’s FAVORITE-this is hers, as are the next two)
#5: Oil pastel (gets all over your fingers but is so vivid, it’s worth it)
#6: Collages (Who doesn’t love cutting up magazines with a purpose?)
Less common but still amazing art
#7: Fashion-some people don’t consider this an art, but I believe it totally is! *haters*
#8: Sharpie and a tile (I got the tile for free-this is pretty unconventional, but really cool!)
#9: Scrapbooking-it’s for anyone!
#10: Hand lettering-who doesn’t love cool hand lettering!
#11: Fonts- you can actually turn your handwriting into a font- see this article from Where the Smiles Have Been for a super detailed guide to making your handwriting into a font for FREE.
#12: Journaling (I just started a bullet journal, and it’s so pretty- sadly I didn’t get a picture of it)
