Once a month we have a Greg and Mary day. Not that we don't do things together at other times, but these particular days are put on the calendar. They are on Fridays, and my husband and I spend the day together. I have to admit that there are more "Mary" days than there are "Greg days", and this Friday was no exception.
My husband asked me if I was getting low on art supplies...
is there ever a time we are not I ask???
We went to "Binders" in Buckhead. I don't go very often, but it's worth a trip now and again. They were having an incredible canvas sale as well.
Saturday my "girls" came over for an art day.(Bethany and Alice you were missed) I played with my new supplies.
Wonderful Holbein acrylic Gouache. Funny, I used them when I began journaling in 2007. I love the stuff, it gives you the flow that watercolor does with more intense opaque color and it is permanent when dry. I am liking the messy spontaneous results of it.
I also played with Derwent Intense Blocks and pencils.
I got this wonderful book of stencils. "Protest Stencil Toolkit" lol There are some I will probably never use, but there are lots I really like. I promise to only use them in my journals or on canvas!!! :)
Having fun playing with this looser, messy, free style. Carrying this journal with me, writing to do lists, notes, etc.
Oh, Jennifer over at Ripplespeak has moved. Go check out her new home, you don't want to miss a single yummy post.
