New Instance, newly-edited post:

Hi, I'm Pamela! I live by a great lake (well, it's alright). I really love animals and have a pet turtle and cats. I like to learn new things and work with my hands. I like ecology, , , , books and nature, and I enjoy painting but don't spend enough time doing it.

I have and write about that pretty regularly, now, as well as my experiences with microwork.

no, self, I know you're out of business cards but you cannot put "hot mess" or "joykiller" or "history's greatest monster" on the new ones

... unless you illustrate them to match, because you're a fucking artist

at home, chilling out, thinking "man I wish I were half as adorable as this smug little fucker" while taking pictures of my pet turtle 🐒 then greedily hoarding all the photos for myself

I'm not sure I've ever actually had a watercolor set that's properly transparent, actually. 36 half pans and only 5 even showed up on the black lines I drew. The other set, they *all* do. Every single shade. :P I mean, looking at this, I see why my CC-0 watercolor background project failed so utterly...

Anyway. So excite. :blobaww:

I am spoiled roooootten right now

My new Really Nice watercolor palette came in the mail today, a gift.

I have decent but stretched/chalky existing set, just a tiny kit. Not beginner, but ... starving artist-level professional. Cheap. And it's got some life left in it. I also had some unbelievably bad watercolor paper, and I was like "okay, you two can go down in flames together, let's make something big!" and ...

I couldn't. I didn't want to use the old. Not even to use it up. I will, ofc.. later. ♻️

Stability and ties to the outside world... consistent social contact, events which mark the passage of time, traditions, that sort of thing... these are immense luxuries we perhaps don't celebrate like we should.

just started freaking out because my face is peeling 😨

you know, two days after using something called a "peel" πŸ™„

my skin looks soooo much better tho
so much better

Actually, it's weird fine art paintbrushes are all little spindly sticks? That seems like such a holdover from paints where stroke mattered much more. I do a lot more tracing a path and filling it in these days, dragging the paint where I want it. That could easily be done with something I could grip with my whole hand, or multiple fingers, or ... oh I just invented oil pastels again πŸ€”

Super in love with The Ordinary's super-affordable chemical peel. My skin is more irritated by the CosRx 7% glycolic acid I usually use than this full peel at 30%, thanks to the clever formula.

Plus, it's red and dries on your face looking like you're about to star in Attack on Titan. πŸ‘

/me carefully nopes out of the news and *starts her tower*

Kurt just tried to tell me nice girls don't explode, and asked me whether I'd tried an honest debate with the explosives. πŸ€”
