Je veux more creative and productive days! :)

I have been on and off about spring lately… but it just makes me so so happy to see all this sunshine.

Today I went outside, inhaled all the warmth and dug out a gorgeous vintage canvas fabric, I bought ages ago and started making… and here it is, a spring bag!!!

It is far from perfect but it is my absolute favorite so far… I used a D-ring to make the shoulder strap adjustable and also a green satin ribbon and a hand made, light pink, ceramic button to close it. And I even tested it ๐Ÿ˜‰ – didn’t wanted be miss-lead by the flowery look. The result – definitely sturdy!

Thank you for dropping by, see you next time, but until then, listed to her!

Fun with the neighbors :)

No day should pass without the act of creating! (either by making art, craft, cooking your signature dish, I’m sure everyone can think of something ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Today I created two linos and went printing with my neighbor and crafty friend Mandyย . Basically I was experimenting with different mark making onto lino, textures and graphic elements with lines. In a very short time I managed to print a few off these two plates and what was interesting for me that we used water based block printing inks (instead of oil based ones) and a baren instead of a press. I have a lot to learn but enjoyed every second of it!! And it so low maintenance! Although I must admit using a press has it’s unmistakable beauty!

The paper I printed on is recycled elephant pooh paper given to me by a dear friend Simon. But I can’t wait to experiment on different types of printing paper.

This is it for today, but new adventures await! ๐Ÿ™‚
