Relax! Oh this template of Erin at ‘the bright owl’ was such a treat for me! It made me relax. All the stress the last one gave me just dripped out of me with every stroke.
I am happy I did a second one last week, because it showed me that it can get better if you just try to relax a bit more. But still that template gave me stress …
We went shopping at the IKEA last week. I haven’t got a clue if that store is known outside Europe. It’s a rather cheap home design-furniture store.
We bought some closets to put the toys of my son in on his bedroom and candles and a little play kitchen for his birthday in 11 days …
I also wanted to buy a printed flower painting for the living room, but my husband got a bit annoyed…
‘You make such beautiful, original art’, he said. ‘Why don’t you make a painting yourself?’. And well he is right off course…
So I bought 3 canvases and started with my first big ZIA. I’ve made bigger paintings before, but never with the intention to tangle on them.
I started like this:
It is far from finished, but I painted a background and starting tangling on it. I will share when it’s finished!
I also made a few ATCs! I really want to have a variety to show my children in class when I go back teaching in January.
I tried different styles, different techniques and traded quite a few already. Sometimes the cards I think don’t work so well get asked for first….
Here they are:
