Weird thing to keep in a jar right? :) I decided poor neglected pretties needed a much needed bath so I had to leave them like this for a while to get that dried ink out. As soon as the water clears I'll assemble them again and they will be ready to draw. Again. Finally! (I can just hear them say that)
I treated myself some more and ordered Winston&Newton Cotman Studio 45 Half Pan Set of watercolors. I’ve been admiring them for quite a while and I couldn’t resist the price when I saw it. I’m testing a new way of getting things from UK because not all the Amazon sellers ship here. There seems to be a bit of a hiccup with this already but I’m confident we’ll sort things out and they will arrive here quickly. I also ordered two of Winston&Newton sketchbooks (with 170gr paper) so that I really won’t have any excuses left not to draw ;)
|ready for Canada|
Now I really have to spill the beans about a very cool art project I’m doing with 6 of my on-line friends: Suzi from Australia, Soni Raj and Sandy from Canada, Yvonne and Esther from Netherlands and Pavinee from Thailand. We decided to make an accordion sketchbook and fill it up with our arts. The sketchbooks will do quite some traveling before they reach all of us but it’s so exciting to read about their current location and what is going on there. I don’t have any of them at the moment but it was really fun and challenging to make mine and think about what to put in it. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out but I shall not share any sneak peeks with you just yet.
I should go and do some seeding now. I bought a couple of packages of poppy seeds when I was in Netherlands because poppies are one of my favourite flowers and I hope to have them on my balcony this year. I bought the huge ones and the small ones - I wonder which of them will grow first.
