I wrapped up my latest journal a few weeks ago, and as I was cleaning up my room today (because I had to make space for the ridiculously huge drafting table that I bought off ebay this weekend!!!), I had a quick flick through the journal and there wasn't really all that much there - I've had a dismal drawing period over the past couple of months where I was so busy, feeling flat and really not all that inspired. When I could be bothered drawing at all, I tended to start things and not be interested in following through, hence there were a number of half-baked pieces that, honestly, aren't worth completing.
Here's what I salvaged from the debris. LOL.
A bit of Rixty play - I should go and have a look at the challenge pieces for this one as I bet others have done some amazing stuff with the pattern, but thus far, it's not one that has really grabbed me.
There was a Quandary challenge a while back - pretty sure I would've drawn this at the time.
Now, for some fun news. Back when I worked in the scrapbooking industry (quite a few years ago, practically the dark ages), I did a lot of work for a stamp company here in Australia, Stamp It - I would do convention workshops for them and the occasional bit of stamp designing. I hadn't submitted anything for years, but sent along a few of my drawings last year - here are the ones that are part of their new catalogue.
I'm not a stamper so the stamped impressions are not all that great - I've probably used the wrong ink, wrong technique, etc, etc.
There's something about seeing my designs turn into a 3-d item that I find so thrilling!
Hope your weekend has been fabulous. We've been spending most of our time inside as the weather has been dismal, though I have been closely monitoring the temperatures of my compost heap and researching ideas for my potager garden - it's starting to shape up in my head and I'm getting very excited. Hopefully we'll get some better weather later in the weekend so I can get outside and DO STUFF!
