Today I spent time in the studio doing some things I have been wanting to do but for some reason never took the time to do so.
I pulled this out today and decide to play with it a little. Its wadding polish and you just take a piece of it and rub it over magazine pages and it removes some of the ink. I think normally it is used to polish metal.
Here are some of the pages I did today. Sometimes it changes the color dramatically and other times it just mutes it.
and other times it gives this smoky effect. I think it made this scene from nature look foggy and misty. I will be using these pages for future backgrounds in my art journals.
The other thing I did was sew this bag to carry my yoga mat. I found the pattern on the internet here. It turned out to be way too big, I could have put ten yoga mats in there. It was designed to hold some more items like a sweatshirt or a water bottle, but I found it to be way too big. So I cut off the side panels and just sewed the front to the back and now it still quite roomy but usable now. I have been doing yoga at home but have decided I might take a class or two. So now that I have a snazzy bag to carry all my stuff in I am all set.
So tell me how did you play today.
