I am pleased to have found a bit of time this afternoon for some experimental art!
But it proved to be a risky business all round......
At the recent papercrafting event at Alexandra Palace, I treated myself to some
Infusions pigment powders by PaperArtsy, gorgeous jewel colours with a hint of
Well.....I'm really not to be trusted with anything powdery.....and the first challenge was
opening the bottle. Following Leandra's instructions I removed the top, over a piece of paper
(genius) to remove the seal and then made a hole in the top....QUICK GET THE STICKY
TAPE OVER THE HOLE! Phew! I only managed to do four colours before I lost my nerve.
So they were my colour choices for this afternoon :)
There was an incident..... during a momentary lapse in concentration, there was a waft.
It reached the plate, but I think it missed the Eccles cake. I managed to sweep it back
onto the picture, so none wasted. And I ate the cake.
I have to make twenty WHITE Victorian aprons next week so I had better clean up.
May have to create a safe environment for further powdery experiments...maybe a
very large cardboard box?
I started another fishy pic but it's not dry yet so call back later.
Bye for now, P.
