Having a ball
Well, the last two days I have had a great time organising my fabrics, arranged them all in colour order rather than type. I used to hunt everywhere for matching fabrics, hopefully this will keep me more organised,Ha
I have even thrown some away, okay they were only teeny tiny scraps, but its a start.
another little pile is going for recycle.
BUT, this morning I painted papers, I am on a high and if I had a room the size of a barn. I would be still painting.
The book that Lynda (Purple Missus)
made for me, based on Traci Bautista's books, set my mind racing, I had just bought Traci's book 'Collage Unleashed' and loved it, and being able to hold Lynda's book made it fall into place,
I have mixed up some Dylon cold water dyes, which I always use for colouring my pages, cheaper than ink, and gathered embossed wallpapers,and kitchen roll, but decided today I was in Metallic mood, tried watering down my Paint Magic ( Jocasta Innes) metallic's, but the paint is such a thick consistency even watered down the paper towel wouldn't absorb the paint, so decided to paint, scrape, splash and dab my paint onto white and black papers, I covered both sides, and the photo's don't show the subtleties of all the colours, I used silver, gold, copper, zinc, and ice blue. now they are all dry, I am going t collect some fabrics for this afternoon, paint them ready for the stamping and printing.
I wish I could lock myself in my room for a week.
