Clean Color

I found these cool Zig pens at Hobby Lobby yesterday and played around with them. They work like watercolor, but in brush form. The colors are vibrant and the ink is waterbase. I like them but I don't know if I love them. They aren't refillable & I think I'd rather fill my waterbrush with ink using a pipette.

Ink brush

I found this great brush-pen pre filled with black ink at Target in the school supplies section! I've been playing around a little in my sketchbook. My kids go back to school next Thursday & I'm hoping to have time to myself. However, a new puppy is going to keep me busy!

Gelli print

I finally got a chance to play with the gel printing plate by Gelli Arts. It's really cool & can't wait to play around with it more! Pulling the ghost print is cool too because you get a distressed look. But, my ghost prints had a big white smear in the middle where I put the white paint. Gotta figure that out. Also, I need to get heavy body paint. The thinner stuff dries too quickly & I am definitely going to get a brayer that is only for printing!

I am loving my new bracelet. I found 2 great bead shops out here & have decided to get back into jewelry design. This week, I discovered how much I miss it! In fact, I think I am going to re-establish my business & do the show/shop circuit again. I might even open an Etsy shop. Etsy didn't exist when I was in business 20 years ago. I'm feeling very inspired & motivated to create!!!

New toys!

So I've been staying at my mom's house this month so my kids can go to camp. They are having the best time! This is the second year we've done this. They are going to the same camp I went to as a child. I even worked there as a counselor!

We got a puppy two weeks ago and she is fantastic! I forgot how much work is involved with a baby!! On top of this, I had an emergency root canal & have had some complications. I have been pretty sick.

I haven't created anything in a loooooong time, but I did go to Dick Blick to buy some new toys. I can't wait to play!!!! Have you used any of these yet?
