Here is where the
Art on a Shoe String
part comes in!
To get started – grab your old spirograph
from the attic, or basement, or eBay,
or the local Good Will, or thrift shop,
or dollar store, or the nearest kid!
Seriously, there are so many places to
find a spirograph for next to no money –
Then just have fun and go for it!
And trying. Ugh.
Actually, ‘ugh’ was the word for the day.
I looked through what I had and found one
red loopy line that wasn’t too bad.
Then I added some tangles.
Nothing too fancy to get started.
In the photo just above,
the red line is the spirograph part.
The black lines are the tangling I added.
You can see that the tangling takes your
eye away from the boo-boos.
I liked how the piece looked at that point,
so I called it complete and shaded it.
I love shading –
although I hate to do it.
I will keep working on this art style.
Because it is so much fun!
And so affordable!
Art on a Shoe String comes from the idea
that art doesn’t have to be expensive
to be fun and enjoyable!
I hope this series of posts help you
realize that you can make beautiful
art without it being costly.
