No paint this week

This week I made a new table runner for my dining table. After the Christmas things were put in the boxes again I needed a table runner between Christmas and Easter.
It is made after the method 'disappearing nine patch'.
I made it from leftovers from earlier projects. Many different fabrics which I like together, a little bit Spring in the air ;-)
size: 140x60 cm.
 After the table runner was ready I decided that I needed some mug-rugs too which would go in colors with my nap-rug :-D
Now back to the painting table!

week2 Wanderlust class

Week two of the Wanderlust class was an adventure for me. We made many layers with papers and paint. While listening to my favorite Irish music I was happy, sad, tired and disapointed and happy again. I think I made 8 layers before I had a result I liked. Making layers was the meaning of this lesson.
Here are a few pictures from different stages and the end result.
It is on 20x25 cm ( 8x10") watercolor paper which was not thick enough but...but...
I think I will buy a bigger square canvas next week and try it again.
Do you know when you click on a photo that you can see it larger?
stage 1, 2 , 4 and 6
result.

some art journal pages

Recently I joined a class called Wanderlust 2017 from Everything Art. It has started last week. The first lesson was making a statement for this year of Wanderlust classes.
I made a page on watercolor paper 20x25 cm.
I told myself "be brave" and enjoy this year of experiments.

And because I have all the paint and other things on my table I made a double page in my old book as well.
acryl paint,stamp, ink,papers, glimmer mist spray.
