As a child, I would spend hours playing “art”. Paper after paper, sketch after sketch, painting after painting. There is something to be said for making art and letting your mind relax a little. This is a great book that gives fun, interesting, (and quick) projects for you to try: from a wrong-handed portrait to a paint blot creation to doodling in the margins (or right over the words!) of an old novel – ON PURPOSE! These pencils from Muji are especially great for shading and blending.
Let the happy out and create something today! (Maybe even a hand-made card for mom?)
