Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all having an enjoyable weekend. I also hope that you’ve all settled into the new normal. Sarah and I are staying home in order to be well. I understand that it’s not easy for any of us. Our freedom to roam has been taken away from us for a very good reason. That invisible enemy is a killer.
Apart from household, not many though, I have been doing a little hexie work (I will post progress soon) but mostly I have been working on my art journal. That includes searching the internet for new ideas and techniques that I can use to change it up a wee bit. I seem to keep going back to the same thing over and over again. So, here’s my effort for yesterday …..
I made a list of ideas I wanted to include, one of which was bunting and a bird. I have since added several other things to my list which will take me into next month. So, I may be forced to carry on with this challenge until my art journal pages run out. And now for today’s effort …..
This one was really fun to work on. I used a funky bag which I cut into strips and used in the background. The flower petals were made by using some of the Brusho pieces I created at the beginning of the challenge. And of course, I used my trusted water colour pencils to add shading and detail. I would say that I have used my water colour pencils in every single journal page I have produced. Along with my water colour pencils my other favourite tools are my few stencils. If I were to invest a little money into new tools, it would be purchasing a couple of new stencils. Perhaps once the shops open again, I will consider it.
My washing machine is whirring away and the scones I baked a little while ago are cooling on the racking. Sarah and I will have a little tea party in a while. We may even sit outside to party! The weather has been favourable for quite a few days. I can’t remember the last time we had rain. I wonder what kind of weather May will bring? there’s only a few days left in April !!!
So, my lovely friends, I guess that’s my report for this weekend. I hope you have a super cosy day doing something you truly enjoy doing. Be strong, stay home and be well. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.
