Creative Messes

Crafty Projects and the Messes that Come with Them

An Octopus Friend

OctopusWas hanging out with Judy (my friend from elementary who I used to always do crafty, artsy, and random things with!) and we felt like doing something crafty. We ended up painting and this is what I came up with. We clearly didn’t know how to use watercolours properly at first! We then looked it up and found out we were supposed to wet the paper before putting the paint on! And that is exactly why some parts of my painting are blotchy and some are not (: To create this octopus, I first drew it using a pink peachy crayon. This kept paint from staying on any parts covered with wax from the crayons, leaving this nice effect when I painted the red around it. It was nice painting again!
