Art Every Day Month, Day 1

new suppliestesting new ink samplesToday is Day 1 of Art Every Day Month, a challenge run by Leah Piken Kolidas over at Creative Every Day.

I’ve been all excited about this challenge, and was anxious to get home and do some ART tonight.

After a very l-o-o-o-n-g day, I arrived home at 9PM, exhausted and a bit deflated. Wasn’t sure what smidge of creativity I might have left.

As I pulled in the drive, I could tell that a package was sitting on my doorstep! Hurray! The day might be saved after all.

The package contained some new art supplies – two different kinds of acrylic ink – that I’d ordered last week.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I can’t just let new art supplies SIT there without giving them a try.

So I popped open both bottles and splashed them around on some paper. I’m typing this post to kill time while they dry.

When they’re dry, I’ll give them a test to see how they stand up to water and other acrylic paints – do they smear? Do they run? Are they truly opaque? How long do they take to dry?

Tap, tap, tap. << — that’s me anxiously waiting. Sigh.
