Swap with a Forum Member + Daffodils!

I did a swap with another Felting and Fiber Studio Forum member, Elizabeth. She was cleaning out art supplies that she was no longer using and showed us some of the stuff. Of course, I couldn’t pass up ink and refillable pens. Thanks Elizabeth for a great swap.

Swap with Elizabeth

So I got these in the mail, plus some extras including the sequins waste, palettes and water-color papers. I haven’t had much chance to try the inks but they are iridescent.

I did do a quick monoprint by dropping some gold ink on glass, then I pressed the already painted brown paper down on the ink. The gold is pretty shiny.

Water Color Papers

These are the water-color papers. They have the paint on them, you take a wet brush and swipe paint off and apply it to the page.

Water Color Sample

Here’s a quick sample of all the colors. They don’t look the same on the paper as they do once you get them wet, that’s for sure.

Blooming Outside

And it’s officially spring here. The first daffodil bloomed today. I have over 500 bulbs planted and when they are all in bloom, they are impressive.

First Daffodils

I weeded around them last week and broke a few off. I didn’t think they would bloom but they did so I have some in the house as well. So Happy Spring and thanks for stopping by!

  1. The inks look like fun. It was a good trade. I wish spring would find us here. Thanks for the pics in the meantime. 🙂

  2. A very nice bundle of art supplies. 🙂 Spring is my favourite season, I love to see everything coming back to life. The garden and surrounding countryside here is now very colourful with all the Spring blooms which the bees, butterflies and ladybirds are enjoying.

  3. Ah yes, spring is definitely here bringing with it the promise of warmer and sunnier days to come 🙂 The inks look great, really vibrant colours, glad to see they have found the perfect new home (I have a feeling you will put them to very good use!)

  4. We had some ridiculously warm days, then it reverted back to hail and 50mph gusts, we even had ice on the birdbath this morning! Your daffs look nice, and it the inks and paint paper look really interesting.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
