This week I didn’t have a clue on where my spread would end, but that can be a good thing sometimes. I knew I wanted to work with some left over fabric scraps from our workshop with Revlie, and so I did. This month the theme on DLP is: texure! And the first art challenge was to use fabric. I don’t own much of it, so hence the choice for the left overs. I talked about my love for Neocolors last week. I ended up working with the two different kinds of Neocolors this week, the neo I that is just wax and the neo II that is watersoluble. You can easily get creative by combining those two.
I started out like lots of our Lifebook lessons: using tissue paper and book paper for a background. Then I loaded it with lovely cold colors. I think this is really my palet. Even when I look in my wardrobe, it is mostly this color scheme, only navy blue is missing on my spread. I wear that a lot, it’s my go to colour to wear 😀
This is the video, i hope you enjoy it.
The journaling prompt of this week is: the fabric of my life. I used the leaves on my flowers to note down some little bits of thread that make the fabric of my life: friends, family, scrapbooking, art journaling, art nouveau, Marilyn Monroe, cooking, my cats, flowers, pink, bows, travel, coffee…
I had to change my video-modus operandi a bit… Usually I take bits of music created by my brother in law Paul Verschoten of Mind.Divided, but somehow I have gotten on the nerve of Youtube. Or so it seems. As of last week they blocked the ‘miniature view’ of my video. It just showed a grey screen with three dots in the middle as ‘preview’. Not really inviting for viewing, and the figures show it. So that is why I am trying out Mr. Mozart as the musical supplier for this week.
I hope you are doing ok? I am seeing lots of sunny views from parts of the USA, I’m glad to see you are already enjoying spring. Here in Belgium, weather is a bit more ‘fit for the season’ as we are used to it. A little nippy and some rain for this week. This week that’s a good thing, because of, well you know, our lawn that’s growing 😉
Enjoy your day, whatever the weather!
