Just because we get older
doesn’t mean we lose
our joy
for doing FUN things.
Growing older
doesn’t mean
we no longer
get excited
when we get a new box of crayons
or new gym shoes
or beads
or paint
or whatever tickles
our adult toes…
For me,
I’ve just upgraded my supplies a bit…
but I still like to play
and I still run to the door
with much excitement
whenever my UPS guy
rings the doorbell
to deliver a new shipment of
ART supplies. :-)

This mixed media collage painting is made from acrylic, Inktense pencils, and FW acrylic ink on natural Shell Paper (see below) and painted 140# watercolor paper.

Shell Paper is a multi-media paper made with actual shell emulsion, specially designed to accept acrylics, watercolors, inks, pastels, and even oil pastels! The paper comes in colors and natural white; colored papers are made using organic pigments, and natural white adds a beautiful pearlescent effect to transparent washes. Surface is lustrous and semi-absorbent. In fact, the calcium in the shell coating allows for wet media techniques, making Shell Paper the ideal surface for multimedia expressions using a wide array of media from crayon and charcoal to fluid acrylics and inks.

The paper is handmade sheet by sheet, so each piece of Shell Paper is unique and somewhat different than the next.
