Hello my lovelies. It’s another bank holiday here in England. I hope you’re all having a super fine day. It’s overcast and pretty cold here in my little corner of the northeast of England today.
I seem to be sticking to my Messing Around Challenge. It’s now day 13. Here’s how I played with my art journal today …..
The blue splodges are actually foil from my Easter eggs!!! And here’s the page I started prepping for tomorrow’s effort …..
I try to do a little prepping everyday because things take a while to dry to my liking. With layering up papers, adding paint etc the pages don’t sit flat anymore. It bothered me at first but now I realise that it’s a sign of the effort I put into something that’s so far out of my comfort zone …..
Over the last 13 days I have worked at my dining table. Well I’m thinking about setting up a little station somewhere in the house. It would mean that I can leave my art supplies at my workstation instead of having to put everything away after each session.
To me the rainbow the is a sign of hope. Of late, the rainbow has become a sign for the #NHS. Windows everywhere are plastered with rainbows drawn by children and adults alike. Soooo, my Sarah gathered up some of her yarn stash and crocheted these …..
And the crocheted rainbows are now hanging in our front window as a sign of hope and solidarity. After all we’re all in this together.
I discovered something this afternoon while I was outside taking photos of my art journal. My first peony bloom has made an appearance. It seems to me that it’s a bit early for peonies to bloom but I’m glad it did. The peony is my favourite flower. I have a total of four different peony shrubs which also include a tree. I hope my peonies bloom for a good long season this year.
So, today is the last day of a long holiday weekend. Tomorrow we go back to the new normal of staying home, protecting the NHS and staying safe. For all those who are staying home, I think you’re all heroes helping to slow down the pandemic.
Well, I guess that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching and messing around with art supplies.
