I am Guilty...

I am very, very guilty of wanting absolutely everything I see...I am the one who says..."you know...if I had this....or that....I could really make some nice art, or a great dinner, or a beautiful quilt" Please tell me I'm not the only one!

Anywho, after a visit over to Kate's blog this morning....(if you clicked the link you'll see why)...

She did some more awesome journal pages and this time, she's got herself some new spray inks.... I immediately thought...you know....and clicked the link......

Hold the phone here...I realized that in that studio of things, I have spray inks...tons of them..but, Kate's (Dyan's) looks so beautiful, and see what she did with them!!! If I just order them, well you know the rest. (And, no, I didn't order them....yet...)

Off to the studio I went, with an idea that is.....I have these Ranger color wash inks from forever ago.....

And some of these little pots of pearl powders....the actual name of them escapes me as I write this...

Mix them together with a bit of distilled water (I have enough science projects going on around here than to have moldy water stuff in my studio...so I use distilled water in things that I mix if I may have them sitting around for a while..




And let the spraying begin!!!!

This was fun and kept me happy for a bit....but I keep going back to the link....
http://shop.afth.co.uk/ I wish I could take a day of play at her storefront....
Oh, those sprays are so beautiful....
Have you been to Kate's blog yet... http://www.thekathrynwheel.blogspot.com/
Fabulous, huh....told ya...and if I had those sprays...well...this could be bad :)
Wanted to leave you with some more views of my studio....
This is the sewing station....which could technically be packed up because I haven't used my machine in um....5 whole years....I really want to sew again though...

Notice land of "stamp" in the background (near the window)....those are the Stampin Up stamps that I have that I rarely use anymore...but one day....I keep my other stamps in various drawers and such near my worktable.
Enjoy your day.
Until next time,
Ophelia

The inks are wonderful.

And no you aren't the only one that has the "if I just had..." syndrome. I stopped at the art store on my way home from work to buy a stabilio pencil. I only had a little cash. I ended up using the debit card.

I did remember the pencil at least.

Are you kidding! I'm in Michaels so often they have honestly memorized my zipcode. You are definitely not the only one!

Michele Fauss said...

Oh rats, now I went over to her blog and so want those inks! They are beautiful and so bright!

Btw you are not alone, I do the exact same thing. If only I had this... Yep just about everyday it seems I find something new I must have. I need more space and more money. :)
