When I gathered the photos for this post, I noticed how many pictures of stamps there are. Now I’m no longer only a washi tape addict, now I’m a rubber stamp addict too. Yikes. With the new alphabet stamps of Green Grass Stamps, I’ve almost filled a second box with mounted rubber stamps. I love to mount even my favorite clear stamps, because this way they are easier to handle.
Motivated through my craft challenge, I’ve already finished two projects, which were sitting in my backlog for over half an year. I’m so happy to have finally completed them – the ‘day in the life’ album from these photos and the ‘photo booth’ neon mini album. Next week I will share the later with you.
Aside from that, I’m working on my art journal in cooperation with Laura and Caylee for ‘Get Messy‘. And made one evening a little moodboard to have a starting point the next morning. It worked very well.
have fun crafting
Wednesday was one of those days when everything was somehow grey and went wrong. To have at least something beautiful at the end of the day, I made a cover for my new blog notebook. For that I used one of my new washi tapes. When I saw the new collection of tapes, I just couldn’t resist. I had to have them. They are so pretty!
On Friday we went to the funeral of my boyfriend’s uncle. It was so sad and rained through the entire ceremony. As if the sky was crying too. After these emotional days and eight hours on the road in our car, I had to do something creative, to relax and get my balance back. It ended with a lot of cleaned brushes. I painted two hooks with nut brown stain for our bathroom. They are not finished yet, because they will get little embellishments in light colors.
Moreover I had finally an idea for the three canvases, that waited to be painted for some time now. First I jotted some ideas down on paper, before I chose two designs. The third is still undecided. They will get little gold details later, when I have the time again. Tomorrow and Wednesday I will be away on a business trip. Maybe I have some photos to share with you afterwards.
have a good start into the new week
