I ‘washed away’ the strange quietness in the house this morning by cleaning
the oak floor in the living room. Ha!
I made two pages last week that I can show you.
I started this first one a while ago, and finally finished it last week.
It’s a bit of a chaotic page – maybe because there was a long pause in between?
Anyway, here it is.
(Miscellaneous big art journal: 25 x 35 cm - 9.8 x 13.8 inch)
Used materials: gesso, acrylic paint, Adirondack spray ink, stamps, Stazon ink, cut out images and texts, sharpies, template (the birdies)
My beloved and I gave my son a famous, big cookbook now that he will
live (and cook!) on his own. It’s the same book I got when I moved out
of the house long ago, and it includes everything: from baking an egg to
preparing a Christmas dinner. It’s a great book!
(for the Dutchies: het ‘Wannee kookboek‘)
Besides that, he asked me to write down MY recipes of the dishes he likes
very much (Macaroni with sauce, paste with broccoli, tofu-omelet) so
now I’m working on a little ‘mummy’s cookbook’ for him.
I used a lot of happy, patterned paper and the left overs where too cute to
throw away. I made the following grid-page with the small pieces.
Grid: Nout’s recipe book
15 x 15 cm - 6 x 6 inch
… and that’s it for today folks.
Nothing much happened this week.
- I went to the hairdresser for the first time in over a year!
- The (washi)tape I ordered came in yesterday! WOWEEE!
- I shopped to get all the materials for the Workshop weekend by the Sea.
- I shopped with my son to get him some things for his new room (small
things, like towels and stuff. He’s still looking for a cheap bench, chairs,
maybe a dining table and a fridge.)
- I received more submissions for the FEATURING magazine which
I had to read/overview. (Due date for submitting to the team ends on
November 15th. Submitting your artwork is ongoing. On the website
– under ‘submissions’ – are the categories you can submit art and/or
poems – so go ahead and surprise us with your writing and/or art!)
I hope your weekend will be filled with love and happiness!
(I know mine will! My son is ‘coming home’ this afternoon!)
Enjoy, dear ones, enjoy!
