EGGS!

I JUST WENT TO CHECK ON THE CHICKENS AND THERE WAS 2 TINY BROWN EGGS! They were robin egg-sized!

I have kid-sized hands, so it makes the eggs look big. But they are like brown robin eggs.

I have 12 chickens so I have no idea which ones laid, but I know we’ll be getting more.

How to Draw a Thunderstorm

Ah, yes. You probably think, hey! This blog is supposed to be about ART and I haven’t seen any so far! Well, it’s true! I haven’t posted any art yet! So, yesterday I was late for volleyball (18 minutes, actually) because of a vicious thunderstorm. It was very windy, and the trashcans blew really far. Our flagpole was ripped off of the thing that was holding it. TO CONCLUSION, there was a very bad thunderstorm so I am doing a Thunderstorm-Special on Creative Critique.

I’m just going to draw it freestyle, so it’s nothing really great.

STEP ONE: Turn your paper to landscape (well, that’s what it is!) Draw little lines slanted to one side. You can draw hills and such, flowers, trees and even debris (I’m not drawing debris.) Whatever you want to make yours different.

I added a small mountain on the left. Near the right edge next to the tree and leaves, those little lines are wind. I’ll add more later.

Step two: Draw a line across the top lightly so you can erase it later. Fill the sky with puffy clouds, starting from the line. Do it all the way up to the top of the paper, then erase the top randomly, so it doesn’t disappear, but it’s faded.WIN_20180728_20_09_27_Pro

Step three: LIGHTNING! Add random lightning strikes, and if you have something that stands out (like mine, a tree.) then the lightning might strike it.

Do you like my stupid lone cloud with lightning striking the ground near the tree?

Step four: Add rain. This part can be a bit boring, adding dashes across the paper, but it’s worth it!WIN_20180728_20_30_55_Pro

Finally, add wind and any final touches! You can color it, but I won’t color mine.

I have to admit, I don’t like mine. I know that I can do better 😛

THAT’S IT!!! There you go… hope you liked it!

NEW MUSIC!

YESTERDAY/TODAY IMAGINE DRAGONS RELEASED A NEW SINGLE!!!!!!!!!! It’s called “Natural” and you can listen to it here!

I liked Natural the first time I heard it. I’m really excited for a new album eventually. *Christina, don’t get too ahead of yourself. You went to an Imagine Dragons concert 2 weeks ago exactly.* I WILL PAY FOR MY OWN TICKETS EVEN THOUGH I OWN LESS THAN 200 DOLLARS! YES! *welp. now less than 100 from buying Twenty One Pilots and Imagine Dragons merch…*

ALSOOOOOOOO, if you haven’t heard, TØP (Twenty Øne Piløts) released 2 songs (Jumpsuit/Nico and the Niners) from their new album “Trench” to be released October 5th and you can hear these songs here.

HAVE A GOOD TIME WITH THE NEW MUSIC!
(GUESS WHAT? I’M LISTENING TO JUMPSUIT NOW! ALSO, I like Nico and the Niners better than Jumpsuit. Actually, UPDATE! I’m listening to Car Radio now. The song changed. “And now I just SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!”)

 

Lefty’s Guide to Writing

You probably don’t know that I’m left-handed. That means I get ink all over my hands and these are just some tips on avoiding inky hands when you write.

  • Lift your hand up. Don’t let it drag on the paper.
  • Don’t add pressure when letting it drag.
  • Move your hand under the writing.

There’s three tips. I guess since that’s not that much… I’ll give you a fact:

Did you know that if you’re right handed, you use the left side of your brain, and when you’re left handed, you use the right side of your brain. You probably knew that, but if you didn’t, there you go!

Ciao for now!

*UPDATE! I just read that “Lefties make better artists!” Huh…*

Happy Independence Day, USA!

Hello fellow bloggers! Happy Independence Day! I hope you are having a great Fourth of July.

I think that we should say Independence Day more than  Fourth of July because Fourth of July can be any day, not much different from the second of May. I’m not saying I’m right, it’s just my opinion. Fourth of July is also very overused.

Are you doing anything special for Independence Day? Feel free to leave a comment on your day!

Early nighty-night,

CHRISTINAAAAAA 😛 (I’m going swimming right now (in my backyard pool (Yay triple parentheses)))

IMAGINE DRAGONS (post 2 or 3)

TONIGH I’M GONNA SEE IMAGINE DRAGONS!!!!!!! I’M SO EXCITED THAT I FORGOT TO WRITE THE “T” IN TONIGHT! (Location: sentence one) I CANNN’T WAIT TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT!

Guess what: Yaaaaaay!

My favorite ID song at the moment: Bleeding Out

My favorite ID song from Evolve: Hmm… I Don’t Know Why is my fave. It’s less popular, but still great!

My least favorite ID song: Oh, why do I have to do this?! I’ve never been into Yesterday, though. Yesterday, the song. Not the day. Like, not today but the day before, not that. The song, because I actually had a nice day yesterday — OH WHATEVER!

My least favorite ID song from Evolve: Well, I guess Yesterday the song doesn’t count ’cause I already wrote that… so, I must admit that Next To Me isn’t really my thing. *ahh! Feels pretty good to get that out!*

THERE YOU GO!

Adios,

Christina (Man, I used a lot of paragraphs!) 😛
