Welcome Back

As well as art, you might have noticed my other passion is stationary. So I’m hoping to share my favourite items with you on here. I spotted this book in John Lewis, it came with a thick pencil but I found that there was a turquoise Parker Jotter pen available on Ebay. Well it  had to happen didn’t it.

Here they are together and don’t they make a lovely couple. I’ll use this for my daily journal, I’ve written a journal most days since I was about 12, its a good way to empty your head of the days thoughts and worries before bed. 12.50 but I just loved the colour and the pages are narrow ruled. I prefer unlined books for journaling in, as the lines can be distracting.

What is your ‘can’t be without item’ of stationary, the one that brightens your day?

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

Earlier this month I introduced you to Daler Rowney’s Interference colour acrylic paint. I’m still in love with this and wanted to share a few more pictures of projects I’ve created using the paint.

The interference colours are most impressive when used over dark colours, so these books feature black card that I embossed and then used a selection of the shimmering colours over the top. They are tricky to photograph and really pop when you see them in real life, the colours reflect the light so are even more dramatic than metallic colours. Do try some if you can, they are amazing.

Here is a close up on the textile book;

So glad I learnt some bookbinding skills, I couldn’t bear to cover up these backgrounds so used them for covers for my hand-made note books. Will be making some more of these as little Christmas gifts for friends later in the year.

Hope you like them and get to try some interference colours soon.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
