The colors of this painted cover inspired me to dig out some of my treasured, very vintage, ribbon flowers to add to the front along with this pretty porcelain piece.
I wish I wasn't running low on my ribbon roses..... They have been a JOY to use.
Which is why I'm hitting the end of the hoarded pile. I believe in using that GOOD STUFF, not hiding it away.
If a piece is worth doing your best work on, isn't it worth your best supplies too?
I've loved working with the paint pourings to make book covers too.
But sadly, I have packed away all of the paints, tables and racks that I've used all summer to work on making them. My garage has been a paint studio for months, but with fall here, it was time to return it to its purpose of hosting my car. Sugarwings and I were sad to see it all put away, she and I have had a blast making art together out there. I've had lots of parties and gatherings with friends coming over to paint with me too.
I'm already looking forward to next spring and putting the garage back to a better use by doing more of them then!
I'll probably have enough canvases to cut up and turn into books and banners til then, I was so enthusiastic with the technique, I've filled my studio with stacks of paintings to use.
And thank you to all of you who have helped support my habit by buying the books I've been crafting.
This one is a thick one, four sets of blank pages ready to fill with your own art, musings, photos, or dreams. You can find it in the Boutique.
