Splashing, dripping, watercoloring - Time Just for Me

Don't get me wrong: I LOVE teaching. I like travelling and I just love meeting people - they give me the biggest kick and loads of inspiration. But...
I do need some time "just for me", when I can play, experiment, create carelessly, not thinking about deadlines, guidelines, expectations. I guess this is what the layout below is about...

Time just for me

I had my best time ever experimenting with Ranger Distress Inks (As far as I remember - Pumice Stone and Broken China), some gesso, my Prima Doily stencil (well, yes, they are addictive!) stamps and scraps of Vintage Vanity papers, and whatever was on the table including old lace, doily, 3D Foam Squrares and piece  from E-Z Runner (Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L).



Again - I was exploring the possibilities of free hand writing and doodling - I love, love soft pencils. There's nothing I can do about it! I'm really tempted to start to draw again, as I did at school during the boring lessons and moments when I should been studying...

Anyway - here is something in more-less the same colour palette, layout made as a sample during one of my "Splash!" classes. What can I say - a bit of Prima  MechanicalsElementals, Vintage Vanity - all in one. And a lot of tea and Ranger Distress Stains :)

See you soon again!
