‘I Like’ Friday.

IlikeFridayMarch302017

Some things I am liking this fine Friday, last day of March.

Posca pens are something new in my art supply arsenal and I love them!  I have tried and failed with paint pens before, they seem to either explode all over the page or they don’t work at all. Posca pens work like a dream and no explosions yet!

Making your own books is also a new thing in my world and I love it! So far I have only used the basic bookmaking skills and I intend to venture out further into the bookbinding forest with the help of these classes – Get Messy Art Journal Bookbinding and CreativeBug book making.

‘Grand Designs’ is our nightly viewing at the minute but we are nearly at the end of the Netflix supply, so will have to find another watch.  Any recommendations?

Hot cross buns are always a winner at Easter and I like to make them aplenty before Easter!  I have a batch in the oven right now in fact.  I use the recipe from Jamie Oliver for mine and it hasn’t failed me yet.

Millionaire’s shortbread is in my future, my teen put in a request for it, so I think I will make some over the weekend.  I always think I have a recipe in one of my old cookbooks, but I can’t find it, so I will use this one from the BBC Food website.

Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller is my latest read and it is good so far, an intriguing start to what I hope will be a great read.

Kids books for drawing inspiration – In my Heart by Jo Witek and Cloth Lullaby by Amy Novesky.  It is amazing where inspiration can come from and these books have colour and images galore.  I really like the way that In my Heart has the heart cut out throughout the book, I want to recreate this idea in an art journal.

Book Spine poetry is something I had not come across until I read Rebecca Johnstone‘s  post about it.  What a great idea.  I even made my own poem with the book spines in my photo.

Cloth lullaby

Swimming lessons,

In my heart.

While I am working at the library today I will be creating book spine poems all over the place!

Happy Weekend and Happy Friday x
