colourmepositive week 18

This week’s quote was from Julia Cameron, who wrote The artists way. The bonus challenge was to use a heart/s on the page. I suspect my heart was not quite what they were thinking of! I used a StencilGirl stencil, other stencils, Dylusions paint and Golden Fluid acrylics. In the bottom left you can see, under the red border, that I started stamping a different border but didn’t like it. I left it there because the joy is in the process of creation and the final page doesn’t have to be perfect…

colourmepositive week 17

This week’s quote was about finding your tribe. The bonus challenge was to carve a stamp, which I decided not to do. I enjoyed this because Seth Godin’s book about tribes really spoke to me some years ago, and I have found two tribes I “love hard” – artists, and librarians on Twitter. Golden Fluid acrylics, Dina Wakley paint, Tim Holtz stencils, Dylusions stamps, Distress Markers, white gel pen.

DP unplanner week 10

This weekend it was time to set up my unplanner for March with a month view calendar, a blank list for recording who knows what, and the first of this month’s PACs. I’ve gone for collaged gelli prints with stencilling over the top as a base for my pages. The theme is about finding value in the small things and I knew straight away what I needed to record. Every few years the migrating swallows find their way to our back yard for a rest on the washing line. It’s always amazing to see them – I have no idea how they end up in Patea, and why only every few years, but I am grateful they are an occasional part of our lives.
