This afternoon I went back to my love of mixing colours. It's been a long time since I've had glue and paint on my hands- and it felt good I can tell you.
I've missed this creative side just sitting and playing and letting the mind wander - I think we have enough rules in our day to day life and we forget to just let go and be ourselves.
I don't pre-mix the colours I like the freedom of applying paint straight onto the "canvas" and seeing the colours "develop" as I apply it to the item being painted.
I started by playing with some shrink plastic squares. I've had this idea about making buttons with it - it's not a new idea just something I wanted to make to use on my cards in some way - we'll see.
I wore my stampbord necklace one day last week and I had so many people commenting on it that I thought it would be good to make some more necklaces to sell.
