I am not going for the sympathy vote - it's just a fact. My brain won't switch off with life's problematic intrusions - it happens to us all doesn't it.
So late afternoon, when all the chores, and cooking etc had been done, I just went into my little craft room and just experimented.
I bought a roll of wallpaper lining today, as I couldn't get any watercolour paper or sketch pads from the nearest town. As it is so cheap for a big roll of paper, I didn't have the 'worry' of messing anything up and I just 'let go' and played.
The first thing I did was to tear some strips, to make pages, then I sloshed on some water colours, dried it then sloshed on some very watery pearlised water colours.
And although this photo does not do the colours justice - you can just see the metallic effect of the splatters.
All of the blue shades are pearlised and catch the light - it's great!
I don't have a clue what I will do with these pages I am creating, but it is just wonderful not to 'try' to make something for a challenge or theme, but to just be a child again and play!
