Monday In The Studio

I think I should rename Messy Monday to Manic Monday that’s how it’s felt for the past few weeks. After lots and lots of dental treatment mixed with a sinusitis, ear infection and struggling with weeks of deafness in one ear, things are starting to look up and I’m feeling a bit more like me again. Hey, yesterday I opened my journal and put some paint on the page and that’s not been me for ages.  Add into the pot some truly dreadful weather, not like Summer at all and a broken laptop thanks to a glass of water and I think the start of my Summer has been at times depressing.

Anyhoo it’s nearly July so things have got to get better, haven’t they?

Big big big news, I have my stamps all ready here to go in the shop. Woo hoo.  I just need to package them up and we’re good to go. Here’s a little peek at one of the sets.  I couldn’t resist having a little colour in.

The August edition of Craft Stamper magazine came out last week and I’ve a card featured in the 3D Challenge pages this time. To be honest I’d forgotten about this one seeing as we work so far in advance for print so when it came it was a pleasant surprise. The whole mag this month is full of cards just to show that mixed media isn’t all about canvases and journals.

As I said the weather has been absolutely apalling in June so every minute without rain was a minute spent out doors making the most of it. It’s always more enjoyable to take everything outside to work. The sun seems to make planning days much easier.

Basement Studio also received a party commission last week to cut shapes to be used in table decorations for a Vegas themed party. I cut 400 shapes to glue onto 200 stems of wire  and wired up 100 playing cards. Plus they were all glittered too so as you can imagine there was glitter everywhere. It felt like Christmas.

Hopefully I’ll get time to finish that journal page this week before next Messy Monday.

Have fun

This weekend I went down with the cold I’ve been so determined to avoid now for weeks. I tried my best to get on as normal but after spending a couple of hours in the garden on Saturday I was flaked and Sunday I could hardly muster up the energy to get off the sofa. It’s a bit better now but of course the coughing will stay around for a while no doubt.

Yesterday for Messy Monday I did manage to get a journal page together. More collage and Dylusions paints then a simple drawing of Luxembourg city and that was it.

I’m starting to become braver with adding more colour instead of sticking to the usual turquoise and blue colour scheme. The addition of pink a previously unseen colour on my pages is adding loads more interest.

Spring Flowers Challenge

We spent this weekend in the garden weeding, digging and getting rid of cubic metres of moss from everywhere. It was truly exhausting, but I’m satisfied we did a brilliant job and it’ll surely pay off when the summer comes.

It’s lovely too to be able to draw inspiration (literally) from the garden and for my Messy Monday journal entry this week I did just that. I went out and took a few pics of the Spring flowers, then sketched one or two in my sketch book. My favourite was the pot of primroses which I thought I’d transfer to my journal.

The weather’s vile, I’ve had a cold and spent the weekend coughing and felt vile so the only thing to do was stay in paint something.

I decided to create another background of hand writing nonesense and this time I used ink and a dip pen to write it. I like the dip pen technique alot as it makes my drivel look arty.

I put a few flowers on the page to finish it off and all the while I was drawing them I had Lazy Daisy going round on a loop in my head.

I’d like to know if you’ve created a page with hand writing on it somewhere. It might be the title or the background, where ever you feel comfortable adding it.

Have a good week and stay warm
