So, I was nominated by Liz for the Liebster award — which is what I will be doing today.
Thanks Liz, for the nomination.
Now for the answers to your questions!
This is a Quick Lil’ Post I have planned on doing for a little while. I am going to ‘spotlight’ some of my favoritest role-model photographers and also introduce you to some less-known photographers who are emerging and well-worth your follow.
So let’s get this thing on the road.
Today I will show you an update on my latest drawing. A vintage girl with sunglasses and full lips in graphite. Continue reading “Vintage Drawing+ Change 2”
It’s been a few days…right? Well, here I am! Over the past few months I have been making various changes to my blog. I have been attempting to organize and get things straight.
But when it comes to this blog…one thing has never changed. What’s that?
It is simply…my blog’s name! The reason for that is I am rather attached to my blog name. The Misty Mountain has always been my title and I always have liked it.
But as I make several announcements (which will change my blog slowly) over the next few days…or weeks…there will be a change. If not a few.
The first change is the name. It makes me sad to wave goodbye to The Misty Mountain, as it’s been my title for four years (this blog’s whole life 😀 ). But it’s time.
So without further ado…my new blog name!
Surprise! And you wondered what happened to Crystal Ice Studio 😉 . So that is change #1.
Keep an eye out for the next changes.
Due to more internet restrictions I am going on hiatus indefinitely.
We will be super busy during the month of May (my birthday month) anyway…so I think this is a prudent idea.
Anyways…that’s the notice. You’ve been warned!
A new writing post has emerged!
The last one that was similar to this was 5 Reasons You Should Keep Writing.
Today we’ll be talking about writer’s block.
Your inspiration is non-existent. You don’t feel like writing…or maybe you do and can’t think of anything to put on that blank page (or screen 😀 ). Congratulations!
You have writer’s block.
Now that I’ve diagnosed your writing problem (which you most likely have already diagnosed 😉 ) and also given you a deceptive blog post title…we may proceed!
What??! You gave us a deceptive blog post title?
Well, yes I did. You see…there’s no one way to fix this problem. I can’t just give you tips and say “This one will totally work for you!”. Because…every person is different and what works for me may not work for you. Yay, aren’t I encouraging?
While that may sound like bad news…guess what? It can also be very good news! Putting it positively- your solution may be right around the corner waiting to be discovered. So see, it’s not hopeless!
I hope this was helpful to you! Keep writing!
Have you tried any of these?
Name a way not listed that’s helped you in the comments!
A you a writer, or more of a reader?
Perhaps some of you have noticed my drastic change on The Misty Mountain. I have completely changed my website look! I chose to use two complementary colors (orange and blue) because I am semi in love with that look. I am also attempting to adopt better structure. This is going to be a bit bumpy (especially since I’m not done designing my website yet) but I am glad for all y’all’s patience. Thank you, guys- for following my blog, and hopefully I can start being more accommodating to what y’all want to see.
Have y’all taken my survey yet?
If you haven’t, hop over to it and vote! At the end of two weeks I’ll use the biggest voted choice and do a post on the winning thing. Basically the survey is really just a poll asking what kind of posts you most want to see. If you’d like to more of something else (not listed) then please comment on the poll with what it is. And as a side note when I mentioned photography, it more refers to very basic things. I have a photography website (as you know) where the most of photography is mentioned.
Now that y’all have seen my header- what do you think? Do you like it? I am working on some other blog-related design stuff, so if you have suggestions- please share them!
“Growing up is never straight forward. There are moments when everything is fine, and other moments where you realize that there are certain memories that you’ll never get back, and certain people that are going to change, and the hardest part is knowing that there’s nothing you can do except watch them.”
“One of the oddest things about being grown-up was looking back at something you thought you knew and finding out the truth of it was completely different from what you had always believed.”
“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.”
~1 Corinthians 13:11
Have you had any similar thoughts?
Do you have any favorite childhood memories?
What is ONE memory that you never want to forget?
p.s The cake for the post is the one I made for Hannah’s birthday. It was a two layer cake, one layer raspberry- the other vanilla. With chocolate cream cheese frosting, and strawberries on top.
Welcome to Art Swirls 2. ! I am excited to do this one today because I hunted for a few drawings on Google and came up with two drawings to try freehand. I didn’t measure anything at all…just used the good ole’ eyeballs. 😉
This one had more room for creativity. I sorta’ just chose a bunch of random objects to draw, and some from memory. This is what I came out with.
I did the drawing of Chip as a ‘promo’ art for the live action Beauty and the Beast. Anyone else hoping to ‘be their guest’ this March?
