    Guess I should have read all the posts! LOL!

    I mailed my partners envie on Wednesday, I hope it has a quick and uneventful journey...

    Also I know that both my rolo cutting dies have been dispatched, but it might be another month or so for them to get here. However, if I can get them to cut with a rolling pin and cutting mat I will order a set of round dies next, so that I can participate in the trading coin craze as well.

    I used to trade regularly with another Afa member for about 2 years, and her art caught my attention because she had some awesomely odd blob drawings for trade. Basically you make a random blob of paint and then you see if there is a creature hidden inside the blob. It took me a while to find a nice video on how this works, by now there are more tuts around than a couple of years back.

    I mailed mine Wednesday also. So keep your eyes open, Nicky. I had fun doing this for you.

    Gem, I dig the video! I liked that the artist turned the blob upside down. The use of thick and thin lines was kewl too.

    And today we had a playdate for one of my older sons and he loved these so much, we cut out bigger circles and I allowed the kids to use one of my good brushes and my winsor newton wc paints and then they made their own blob monsters. They were at it for nearly an hour, so the entertainment was well taken care of

    The blob paintings are great to do when you are stuck in an art rut or feel uninspired, and as Mel‘s share demonstrated you don‘t have to draw monsters at all. It can be cute or an inanimate object like a plain. I just love the odd and weird style of the monsters, I do hope you give it a try Lindy
