(sketchy styles makes chevron collages from magazine bits! ) 

Making art is not an idle hobby, it is a necessity for your body, mind and soul.  While your art may be drawing, dancing, singing, playing music, styling clothes, decorating homes or even needlepoint (!), there is always room for experimentation and play.  These crafty DIY’s are an easy-in to more art-making. Whether you bake up some marbled crayons or chevron a collage from old magazine tears like Sketchy Styles did, make art!

Sharing more ways to make more art is my not-so-subtle way to give you an endless well of ways to start the art making!
