There was a meeting of SerenTex on Tuesday and above you see a few of the members who were present. If you pop over to the SerenTex blog you can see a little of what went on there.
I have been doing some painting and designing at home and have had a 'fun' day all by myself. I love colours! I think my colours are becoming brighter all the time and this could be because I use the computer so much and my brain has got used to the bright colours I look at all the time. Most of my favourite blogs have bright colours. Have a look at Ro Bruhn Art here for one.
These are some of the papers I had painted and they are all very colourful. Next I used a roller on them.
I had borrowed Sue's rollers, but they were so very clean I decided not to use them with black paint. If anyone knows where I can buy some of these rollers I'd be very happy to know.
So I made some of my own instead, using a couple of those rollers you buy to pick fluff off your clothes. I'd bought 2 very cheaply at the pound shop. I'd also bought some of the felt pads to put under chairs to stop them scratching the floor. These included strips. It was these strips I cut up and stuck onto the rollers.
Here are some stamps I made very quickly as you can see.
And here are some of the results. I think I really went a bit mad today (smile). Some I loved, some I hated, but I had so much fun playing. This one below just had a mind of it's own and I just wonder if it was a conversation I had with my husband this morning that was in my subconscious. He'd mentioned in passing a friend who has a narrow boat on the canal, but the colours are not right in this one I'm afraid.
For a fun day or to give a lift to the spirits I can highly recommend this!
