Sometimes I just love to sit in front of the TV with my art journal and doodle. I have been looking for something to hold all my markers and pens I need when I do. I tried all kinds of holders and discovered that this little tin is perfect for the job but I didn't like the coldness of the tin against my hands. I decided to dress it up with some crochet, felt and buttons and added a little bling too. You could say 'Oh my word but it's so kitsch!' Well... maybe it's kitsch, maybe it's funky but it's my own creation and I love it! Best of all it's nice and warm and very very handy indeed! :)
And for something totally different. Magazine collages! It is such a creative and imaginative way to experiment values and shapes. I did these collages by using only magazines and build the faces up with small pieces of torn pages. I know they are not masterpieces by far but it is a way to experiment and create playfully. Give it a try!
