I have been a little remiss in writing for a while and I have no rhyme or reason for this, I seemed to grind to a halt in posting the 100 day project this year. I finished my 100 day Project – 100 days of Creating with Blue and you can find it here on Instagram if you fancy a peek.
This weekend our local antique shop was open for the first 7 days of the month, so today being the first of the month, we went to see what was there.
I found a few things to use in my art which always makes me happy!
No this awl is not broken or worn down, it is a teeny spike! Perfect for bookbinding. The nib pen is a Esterbrook No. 7 Drawlet dip pen and works very nicely, it is a thick line to write or draw with but very smooth, so no complaints.
I am always on the lookout for doilies to use with the gelli plate, so I thought these were a good buy at a couple of dollars for all of them. I am looking forward to printing with them!
This piano music book caught my eye because of it’s sewn binding and sturdy cover, I thought, ‘I can use that as a sketchbook’. So I bought it and I did use it as a sketchbook, it turned out to be the perfect amount of pages for what I needed.
I did not buy any of this wool, but the colour selection was second to none! Just look at that colour palette.
So that was my weekend, how has yours been?
Happy Sunday x
wow, so many beautiful and useful things –
What lovely treasures – I bet your gelli prints will be stunning! I don’t think I could have walked away from those beautiful wools but which colours would I have chosen???? 🤔
