Stretching Creatively


This is my first prompt for A Year in the Life of an Art Journal.  The theme was do a page about my word for 2013.  My word is Stretch.  I've included some of the things I want to do to stretch myself creatively.  I really want to do something creative every day.  I want to learn lettering and a little drawing.  I'm not a huge fan of doodling so I'm going to find my "style" of doodling because it's quick and I can do it when I'm tired and I'm resting in my favorite chair.

I had a good time using the pearlescent paint that I've had for years.  Another goal for me is to use the supplies I have.  I have so many and I'd like to learn to use them in new and different ways. I have cool paint brushes and I have no idea how to use them for their intended purpose.  One has short and long bristles.  Another one looks like a fan.  I plan to read up on them and see what I can learn.
