Well finally some real art time....
Hi Ho All of You
So my hubs is in hospital and after a
frenzied week of details taken care of
extra chores to figure out, and a general
'what the heck'....
now it is a 3 day Holiday weekend here
Canada Day Weekend with the holiday
Had all of my ducks in a row by Friday,
with the full intention of doing something,
anything creative for myself.
Seems my mojo has been on a slow burn
all week, but what better way to get some
quality creative time....
So I dragged out my big rolling
rubbermaid cart full of my
liquid acrylic paints from my
decorative arts days and grabbed a gel plate
Didn't have the patience or time to drag out
my huge collection of stencils and mark makers,
that would have taxed my brain a little too much currently...
Just wanted to make a pile of colour and designs to
start a little project with my collection of Mole Skin books...
So once I had all the papers printed on the gel plate
off I went on cutting and pasting pieces into a brand
new blank mini-mole skin book....
My idea is to just take bits and bobs of pages,
even the pages I rolled my brayer out on just
to created backgrounds in the entire moleskin
so as the mood, time and inclination hits me
I can just grab and do some collage, pen work
for a few minutes or for an afternoon....
This part of just pasting them in the book is
creative enough for my brain currently,
picking and choosing which 'pages' might go
well together for backgrounds....
...I find just looking at all the colours is
uplifting in itself....
...also as I'm pasting them in, ideas are
sparking off in my brain on what to do
on the pages....
So between actually making the pages all
morning, then clean up from it all,
having the blank mini-moleskin in the ready,
I can now spent the rest of the holiday weekend
pasting away to give the brain some much needed
de-stressing and worrying about the hubs....
...Barkley's worried too about his fur-dad
but more nose out of joint that I'm keeping busy...
So Happy Canada Day
to all of my Fellow
Great July 4th coming
for all of my American Friends!
