You can feel it in the air, it's nearly here. The bulbs are flowering the veges are happy for some sunshine and we actually get to turn of the heater when we are at home.

Now to what I've been up to (this update is for you Donna!) I have an awful lot of little pots, pigments and sprays to look through whenever I'm searching for a colour etc, so I made this little book with all of my different colours in it.

Be warned, there are quite a few photos and sorry for the marks on the photos, I really should clean my lense a little more often!

If you make the images bigger by clicking on them, you can see the shimmer and shine of these beautiful products.

The book is put together using file cards and rings and my trusty old typewriter (I really love my typewriter), very simple.

This is definately a work in progress that's why it's bound with rings to add more pages. I still would like to include my watercolour paints, pastels, embossing powders, alcohol inks and I'm sure there is more.

The gorgeous cat, bird and little girl images are from lisa's altered art she has some awesome stuff over there and she has a sale on at the moment.
