Hi there - my desk this week is the calm after a little frenzy of crafty action !
I have actually completed some projects !
I am reading my bargin copy of Visual Chronicles about art journalling and they suggest little projects to get you into things.
The first is to create a personal colour palette book - you map out "your colours", those of family & friends, of the colours you associate with different moods etc.
I thought it a bit odd at first but went with the idea, raided the colour swatches in the paint department of B&Q & made this little book - once I got into it I really enjoyed it - i did colour combos for DH, parents, sister (and me !) - then anger, melacholy, peacefulness & the 4 seasons.
I think going forward I could add to it with colour combinations that I come across which inspire me !
I also have another colour project - the little book I've made with all the colours of my Distress Inks as a quick reference for inky projects !
To the right hand side I have some "test pots" of chalky emulsion period paints - meant for decorating but great to make the background colours for things like this box (on the left) I'm in the midst of altering (another TK Max bargin!).
In the centre are my Silkies inks & stamp a free gift for renewing my Craft Stamper subscription - yet to play with these !
Some new stamps - also TK Max bargins - bought a new album & papers too but they are stowed away !
Oh and a mini canvass which is sitting drying - made to sit on my dressing table out in Spain !
Anyway hope everyone has a happy Wednesday - can't believe it is September already & another summer has slipped through my fingers !
