I'll be back soon with my Daily journaling post for this week, but I had to share these first. I had a fabulous weekend away in Wellington with a friend - a lot of SHINE involved ♥ - sharing creativity to inspire others - eating healthily - enjoying happy times with a great friend and being inspired by lovely quilts and art supplies. On Sunday we went to a quilt show by a group called the Towrags
It was at Old St Paul's Church in Wellington and EVERY pew was covered in quilts - it was a fabulous show.
And this was the gorgeous raffle quilt - drawn today and sadly I didn't get a call to say it's mine...
After all that gorgeousness I wanted to go home and quilt immediately! But I am truly a mixed media girl and after that we went to Gordon Harris Art supply store and I was inspired just as much by painty art books and supplies that I had long lusted after and were 20% off on the day....meant to be! First the arty books :
A book by Chris Cozen I seem to have missed
Go and have a peek via Amazon HERE - glorious colour - I've only had a flip through but this is going on my birthday wishlist. I already own and love the one she published with Julie Prichard
Again peek inside via Amazon HERE. Check out Chris Cozen's blog HERE. The other book I saw that I was interested in was this :
HERE. She's also a newly discovered artist to me - check out Staci's blog HERE.
And the supplies - I've been wanting some Goldens fluid acrylic transparent paints, plus a red Tombow and blender pen to try, and couldn't resist adding to my iridescent paints. I shared a video from Joggles HERE about colour mixing with these. Although I can add iridescent medium to most colours, this is a gorgeous shade (Bleu Noir Iridescent) which I don't think I could consistently mix for myself.
HERE. So that's what took my time this weekend...hopefully some art to show from it all soon.
