Oops. I'm sorry to say that for the first time EVER I am running late with my art calendar for the 2010 365 challenge. Oh dear, it's not like me at all but sometimes life just gets in the way! Coming back from holiday, getting ready for the new term (I'm a teacher remember!!) and builders at my house have meant a chaotic few days. Howwever, here is August finished and as soon as I can I will get on with September. In the meantime I am not going to stress about it (OH! Who am I kidding? I already am!) but I am going to fill in the squares anyway and then when I am up to it I shall make the background and stick them on.
I haven't had chance to visit many blogs either but I will, I will ............
If you love spray inks as much as I do then you will be very excited to know that Dyan has created 8 new colours to go with her range of Altered Originals spray inks. Oooooooh :-)) Check them out here.
I have been spraying a bit in my journal (but I'm still working on it, so watch this space...) and I've also been playing about with a few shabby chic lollipop flowers. I coloured these with the new spray inks. Lush!
I also coloured my desk, my lamp, and my hands (and the house rabbit nearly got a squirt too - he'd look good in pink). I have had to invest in some latex gloves. I don't really give two hoots about ink on my fingers but when I have to go straight into work it's not really a good look. I went to the supermarket after making these flowers and the shop assistant asked if I had been blackberry picking LOL!
Something very exciting arrived for me in the post while I was away on holiday. Recently I won blog candy from Terri of Pringle Hill Studios and just look what she sent me. Woop woop!
A beautiful print from of one of her journal pages
A collection of postcards and moos
Some deli paper painted by Terri
Terri also sent me some Deli wrap to play with, I had never even heard of it before! And a white Sharpie poster paint pen. Oooh these are impossible to get hold of in England so I was very happy about that. Thanks Terri :-)
And if you haven't been to Terri's blog before go and have a look - it's a riot of vibrant colour.
And finally ...... while I was away I was featured on Lisa Vollrath's 'Go Make Something' website. Have a look here. Honoured I'm sure :-)))
Ok, I'm off. Time to get off the computer and go and make art. Byeee.
