Hi all and welcome to this weeks blog post, I Should Have Posted This Yesterday WIP Wednesday. It seems to me that I’m always a day late and a dollar short lately, despite my best intentions. My excuse? I’m crafting up a storm – art journaling, knitting and throwing pots; what this means, of course, is that when I’m crafting, I’m not blogging and, putting the shoe on the other foot, when I’m blogging, I’m not crafting. Where is that happy medium I hear so much about???
ON MY NEEDLES
Lion Brand Yarns Wool-Ease
Since knitting cables is high on my list of favorite knitting techniques, I’m loving this!
MY MIXED MEDIA
I’ve been spending some QT with my art journals lately, after a prolonged hiatus. I love this stuff! I have zero drawing or painting talent, but I am an expert at coloring, cutting and pasting! 😀 Here are a couple of pages I’ve been playing with –
This Old Man
Craft paper base, handwriting stamp, compass rose stamp, assorted vintage-y stickers,
old keys, Tim Holtz small playing cards,
catalog cutouts, Tim Holtz Found Relatives card, assorted doodads and old buttons
embossing powder and bee stamp
I love the vintage look of this!
Old Road Atlas page base, washi tape, reproduction Greetings from California postcard,
old beer coaster from Switzerland, cutout from Chinese playing card, Florida tourist brochure,
printed Oscar Wilde quote, assorted travel related stickers
This was a fun project. Oddly, no Bangkok memorabilia. I just noticed that.
My February Planner/Art Journal page
Craft paper base, stickers, Pitt pens, white pen, homemade heart stickers, colored pens, doodles, felt bluebird, washi tape, diecut bird
I’m working hard to stay organized, with so-so results. 😋 I’m more of a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of person, but it’s fun to pretend to be all organized and efficient!
No photos of newest pots. They can wait till next week, I suppose. This post is photo-heavy as it is!
I’m linking with Ginny’s Yarn Along today. Don’t forget to pay a visit!
