there is more
I finished off a few projects started on Saturday more of those later but with new Colour Chemistry inks due out very soon I was tempted to play.
I think in general I am always a fan of what every products are out on the table.
One project I had saved for Sunday was a silk scarf, I have made a few but still working on way to use stamps even more. This project is part of the fabric one day courses that are part of my summer school offering this year.
I used Derwent products for part but it was quite nice to discover the Colour Chemistry inks were best for some parts. I had put myself under pressure time wise with this one so had to resort to my latest mantra of KISS Keep It Simple S(tupid) actually don't like the stupid bit so looking for another word there. Given more time I think I would of added more flowers but today it was about KISS. So I managed to get one end painted just as Martin arrived with a chinese takeaway which I wolfed down quickly and sent him away again so I could finish the scarf.
After that I moved chairs so I was sat with my back to the clock got my head down and tried to balance speed with accuracy. I was going to complete this if it meant staying till midnight. Imagine my joy when I finished and turned round to discover it was a few minutes to 8. Considering the time warp that occurs when you are the studio this was brilliant. So I hung it out to dry whilst I did a quick tidy up.
Dates for classes and other events at the studio can be found here http://www.oakhousestudio.com/events.html.
I hope to see you there very soon.
