I bought a sketchbook with 70 white pages. On reading the fine print I see it is for pen and pencil. I don't care. I luv the clean white 2 page spread and splashed, smeared and scraped. I also duct taped the spine which split. ??? I don't care. It is already messy and the duct tape is cool!
My supplies for my workshop with Joanne Sharpe arrived and the box was huge. :)
It was mostly the paper stuffing around things. lol I am no comparison shopper nor am I very experienced in buying art supplies. (see above sketchbook ) So I just copied recommendations off the supply list and pressed send. I did see the gesso was on sale and I had already bought some for much more so I thought since I was in for a penny, I might as well be in for a pound. I think that saying has British roots!
I am ready to begin!
But they won't ship animal bristle brushes across the border so when I did an errand in the city I used 2 coupons at Michaels. That has to end! oye!
I am so very excited about my set up for doing some mixed media journaling every day. I like it. There is no end in sight and they are so easy to begin and end in a short amount of time. No plan. Just fun.
While MQing the veranda quilt I realized how much I like doing it but my set up is not great. I need an L shaped work space. I spent a goodly amount of time tossing and turning over ideas the other night and I'd have leaped up to go get a tape measure except for the fact that I knew the Rooster would have thumped me good. He was assuming the heat was making me restless. HA!
Last time I did the room I figured it was as good as it gets. So I really needed that 'what if...' to happen. It has so I have forewarned the Rooster I need some help tonight. I only have Friday night because he'll have me back and focused on the walk and fence for Saturday. Friday's are date nights, right! I shall remind him of the times I helped stack square hay bales when we were first dating!
He is sceptical I can do it but while I'm not so hot on a tape measure, I do think I have a viable plan with some built in fiddle room. ;^)
So I hope to end the changes for my playroom/studio with this super creative plan. (again)
I am beginning a whole new exciting season of creativity.
