Rainy Day

  Hello, thank you for coming to see me ... Has it been raining down your way? It's been torrential here at times. I've spent most of the day sorting out my craft room... I think it will now work for me.... I was so used to the organised chaos in my old craft room! .. this one,  smaller, less storage.... Noo shelves!!! Thought I'd share the rainy day view from my craft room window and  a page from my favourite tiny journal... you find things you've forgotten about when you move house, don't you?

 Inspired... if that's the right word? ;-) by this Rhododendron  outside my window.

 Took the photo of this cheeky chappy just before the downpour! it's through the window and on mega zoom
and just to prove that I have done some work ... here's a photo of my DI storage in the top drawer of my Ikea Draws... don't know why I never did this before ! they used to stored in a smaller set of draws stacked up on top of each other... It was a pain finding the colour I wanted... this is much better. Other ink pads are in the next drawer .... great!!
 Hope you've managed to keep dry and safe.
 take care

Seasonal Flower Colours

Good morning and welcome, thank you for dropping by, it's lovely to see you.
 This week at Make My Monday we would love to see projects inspired by the colours in this photograph.

 Your project doesn't have to include flowers but you must use the colour theme: here's mine:
 Water colour paper: coloured with DI's milled lavender, dusty concord and shabby shutters. spritzed with water.
Stamps: Paper Artsy Jofy 14 stamped with dusty concord . flowers and script.
            Freebie grasses from magazine stamped using: Marvys Blending Blox: shades of sunset and shades   of green .
 A couple of large Prima flowers cut in half, placed behind the main image 
 Some bling! :)

 Colours enhanced using a paint brush straight from the ink pads and a Faber Castel big brush: Purple Violet, highlights added using a Sharpie white.
It would be great if you could join us this week. I look forward to seeing your projects.
Enjoy your day and take care
