Happy Monday, my dears! Did you do anything creative over the weekend? I kept to my word (to be honest I could hardly wait!) and spent Saturday afternoon continuing my painting from last week. But before I share my own progress, I want to share a quick peek at what a few readers were inspired to create last time…
That’s lovely styling from Heather Spriggs, and beautiful chunky crocheted baskets from Jackcyn Redesign. Thanks guys for joining in! If you want to participate next week (please say you will!) just plan to spend a little creative time doing whatever gets you excited and inspired.
As for me, this weekend I finished building up a richly colored and textured background on my painting. Hooray! Just in case any of you are thinking of painting, I encourage you to give it a try, even if you think you don’t know what you’re doing. It’s fun! I still haven’t purchased too many materials, so I’ve been getting creative with supplies. Here are a few things I repurposed this week from around my house:
- Old credit card = Paint-spreading squeegee
- Kids’ finger painting paper = Disposable palette
- Damp rag = Paint wiper/color-blender/cleaner-upper
Next weekend I plan to add a collage layer and begin developing a main image…stay tuned! The next Saturday Crafternoon linkup will be Monday, February 11.
Did you make something this weekend? If so, please share a link to your blog post, flickr photo, etc., below!
