Rainy Day Play.


Today the weather here in Liverpool is  very very wet and grey.  Its one of those days that reminds me of indoor play at school. I loved indoor play because you got to do arty things, like colour in or paint or cut pieces of tissue paper up to make collages. So today, I decided I was going to have a play indoors day but what crafty project would I choose to indulge in? Now to be honest, I should be working on my in the spot light quilt but I just didn't feel the urge to stitch. I could have curled up in front of the TV with a good chic flick and sewed my hexi's, which I have not picked up for months but again I wasn't feeling it.  Instead I decided to watch a video I purchased in 2014 called Journal Soup 1. It is a step by step class by the amazingly talented Kate Crane, in the art of journaling. Only this time instead of just watching I decided to work along with the video. Out came the paints, stamps, house hold ephemera and a new sketch book. I managed to make two pages, the first one is in my homemade sketch book (DMTV Laura Kemshall tutorial). The second one is in my new Daler Rowney A5 landscape sketch book. I didn't have some of the things Kate used to make her first journal soup page, like the Teesha Moore images or tumble fish images so I had to improvise. Using copy right free images from the Internet to made my own collaged image. I have really enjoyed my rainy day play. x:)
