Hi there folks.
I'm just chilling enjoying a day off today. Sometimes we all need moments to just sit, think and contemplate our blessings before we get caught up in the busyness of our everyday lives so I'm making the most of it.
I also thought I'd tell you about something "new" I discovered the other day that I think is just great for art journaling....
DecoArt Team Spirit Writers. Now, confession time; I ordered these by mistake, thinking that they were something else so when they arrived I was actually disappointed. Best mistake I have made in a while let me tell you! What they are are a waterbased Glass/Posterboard paint with a spong applicater tip. They dry to a lovely matte chalky finish which after about 3 hours is waterproof. The original use is for writing signs etc.
Not any more LOL as I discovered how cool they are in my journal to create great backgrounds quickly.
I started by covering my page with assorted colours (Ok, ALL of them bar white!) layering colours on top of each other in places.
They dry quickly so are more suited to modern funky designs rather than subtle blended tones but the colours are lovely and vivid. There are purple, red, blue, green, yellow, orange, black and white so all you need. I can just see circle designs, stripes and geometric designs etc which I can't wait to try out too so watch this space........
I'd also like to say that this is an unsolicited "review" No one has asked me to try them or promote them.
I'm not even sure if there are any shops that currently sell them here in the UK as I've not seen them anywhere. However I am sure that if your local craft store sells DecoArt Products they would be able to order them if you are interested.
Take care and I hope you all have a great and crafty weekend ahead.
