Bit of a spend last week including some truly beautiful Portfolio Oil Pastels from PaperArtsy and a Lynne Perrella stamp plate. I also bought some Fresco acrylic paints (tucked away for play on a later date) and yesterday added some Posca markers for my journalling.
These new oil pastels are great, lovely creamy texture and they blend with water so kill two birds with one stone - not that I would kill any birds, I love my little feathered friends.
Playtime yesterday afternoon and I used the horizontal strip stamp to make a bookmark colouring over the stamped image with the pastels - nice and vibrant aren't they?
My favourite colours of inks were blended on this panel, zapped with the heat gun and overstamped. I used the new Posca marker to add white highlights - not sure what I'm doing with this yet but it needs something round the edges.
Last buy this week was this great mug. Went to Hobbycraft with a friend yesterday afternoon (for the pens), spotted this and couldn't resist - will take it to my craft club at the next meeting in 2 weeks. Would have preferred one saying 'I'd rather be getting my fingers inky, playing with my stamps and altering art' but they didn't have a mug that big.
I managed to get round a good proportion of the desks last week but I couldn't make it to the end - must try harder and hope to visit more of your desks this week.
Happy WOYWW everybody.
