A rainy Wednesmorning and boy, is it a long time ago that I could say that! Autumn really is just around the corner… in a few days it’ll be September already. I’m looking forward to mild weather and the leaves on the big Oak turning all gold. I don’t mind the rain today ’cause it gives me the opportunity to finally do some things in the house that I postponed during the Summer. And when you postpone tasks, there’s a big chance it never gets done at all.
So yesterday I took out the paint to get the first layer on the back of the case in my atelier. As you could see in this former post Tour d’Atelier there’s a bunk bed for guests in the corner behind that case. I don’t want guests to see a dull brown back of the case when they wake up in the morning so I decided to paint it… LILAC!
No, not on this picture… this is just the white under layer.
So, lilac, to complete the ‘seventies hippie-look’ that it already has because of the hand crocheted blankets on the bed. I might even paint flowers or a mandala afterwards… we’ll see.
There’s another case that needed its back painted ’cause it stands in sight and since I had the paint out already, I carried that case to my atelier and put a white layer on too.
This one will get another layer of white, nothing fancy here ’cause it stands in front of a window that’s between the bedroom and the living room. I don’t want to see lilac all day!
While I am busy painting backs of book cases, the desk looks like this.
It doesn’t all look very creative today is it? That’s why I show you this spread from my art journal, to add some colour to this blogpost.
The Chronicles of Marit 2018 – Week 31
And now I’m off to mix a nice, lilac colour and paint the case… remind me to take photos when it’s done.
Oh, and last but not least: there are new workshops in my shop: online workshops (in Dutch and English!) as well as ‘live’ workshops. I put the badges and links in the side menu on my blog so take a look overthere if you’re interested.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a nice colourfull day!
