Colour book, Free on Friday 20 July 2018
A warm welcome to Free on Friday here at Crafting With Jack and a special welcome to my new followers. I bought a gardening book at a charity shop the other day and it wasn't for gardening purposes :) I decided to make a chart of my colouring pencils and my acrylic paints and also my watercolour paints, but not got that far. I was using my colouring pencils and I used a brown which spoiled the drawing completely as it was too orange. I did try to go over it, but wasn't happy. So I thought I need a reminder of my colours. On these pages I have noted make of pencil (if it wasn't Crayola) and name. Not the best of paper to colour on and I probable should have used white paper and stuck it in.
I did the same with my acrylics. Up to now I have simple gone by colour, but I noticed that some of my new paints were opaque, or transparent. So I made a note of that and their numbers.
I also have some gel and texture gel that I hadn't tried before. The medium gel was great as a glue for sticking the napkin piece and did not seem to make the ink run on the words below. I tried the iridescent gel and a coarse texture gel.
Now as you know I have been the Index Card a Day challenge and today I did a collage and paint background, there are 12 cards underneath this, which I have now separated and trimmed to be worked on some more.
With everything else going on July seems to be slipping by, so I am a bit behind.
My lovely husband bought me a new camera and I have been trying it out. I know you have nothing to compare it with, but the pictures are lovely and sharp compared to my last camera. I even took this picture of a running rabbit - not so sharp I know, but I was still pleased with it.
Now for your free flower cards, I am planning something different for next week. I hope you have been enjoying these.
Have a great weekend what ever you are doing, don't forget to say hello x
