A busy crea week

How I wish I was flourishing, but it was not one of my happiest weeks so tried to do a lot of crea things to brighten things up

But I was in an artsy flower mode and this week I did more art than the week before so... even though it was not one of my better weeks:
There was a lot of art

First my flowery things. Effy Wild has a may challenge that is all about flowers. First I made a painting on a canvas board with flowers
Like how it turned out (someone else liked it too, because it was sold)

full bloom

Also made a journal page in a large ikea album for the challenge. In this album I put down left over paint to make a background
On one of those pre made backgrounds I glued old wallpaper flowers (big ones) and gave it some more color with paint and markers
Maybe not the brightest and happiest page but.........flourishing


And  then I went to a boekselen afternoon. Boekselen is a dutch word by Loes Vork ( ) invented for  "altered books" (working in and with old bookpages). It was in a library in Oudewater and there was a busy crowd of children and adults doing the free workshops.


And I went for a visit to my choir friend Gerda who is still not really healthy and we played with oil pastels and lampoil
A technique showed by Inge Nieuwenkamp at My oil pastels did not work as well as hers but we had fun playing


This week I also tried to paint my crea room with glitter blue paint. Well unintentionally
There are some bottles of a cheap brand were the screwtop breaks. Some kind of plastic breakdown and.... when you shake them like I did when not holding the cap.. Then you have a somewhat arterial spray in your room. Most of it on my clothing but also some "nice" sprays across the room. There are still a lot of blue spots in my room left because cleaning did not work very well

Well that's all for this week. Hope we both have a happy playful new week without accidents
