i am going to bed feeling pretty productive tonight…feels good. I am juggling several projects; both stuff I have to do and stuff I want to do! it always feels like there are a million things in both categories. I did some photography for the Creative Escape book, and had another look at all the projects: good stuff! I am excited…it’s going to be here before we know it! I have been helping a friend w/ her wedding album and it’s been fun and refreshing to work on something with/for someone else. Lots of ideas flowing.
I have had an idea for a project bouncing around in my mind, and today I sketched it up and started playing around with papers…I am loving this combo of my ‘love notes’ collection mixed with some Pink Paislee this and this and Fancy Pants.
I also printed off a bunch of photos from over the weekend, and need to get them into my 4th book……
I have also discovered I have a new favorite product that I find myself reaching for over and over… it’s a little unexpected, but I have been using it in lots of colors (especially this happy ‘sunshine’ yellow).
The paint DABBER by Ranger. SO, the dabbers have been re-formulated and the paint is thinner, and works way better through the applicator/valve deal. ( I am sure there is a special name for it)… but if you have never tried this paint- it has a little valve in the top that allows the paint to come through the sponge for easy application…well in the past when I had them, the paint got all hard, and it wouldn’t come out, and the bottles were really hard, so you couldn’t really squeeze them- now, thinner paint flows great, and bottle is softer so you can squeeze it a bit through the valve, and I am hooked. I like the more intense colors and the white. Right now, I am loving the butterscotch, sunshine, watermelon and white. I will be sharing some of my favorite techniques with it later this week.
