Yes........I know you know I've been shopping!!! I received a few of my purchases, and was thrilled with the presentation of one of the orders. I couldn't help share it with everyone. That lovely soft mint green raffia will come in handy....... I am still waiting on a few things, ie oil pastels and paper. That is okay.
This photograph shows some of the most recent purchases, not all from the same store, but all geared towards my mixed media journey. If you click on the photograph, you will get a better view of the individual items. To be honest, I could do with more of these inks/mists/paints.
I couldn't help but buy these cute little paper clips from http://www.artworxgeelong.com.au/store/store.php?Home-pg1-cid1.html I just love them, and I do apologize to those of you who already know about them. I had never seen them - really should get out more!! Of course, they will not be used for paper clips, and at just over $5 per packet, who could be bothered trying to curl wire for things!! You can buy them in square shapes too.
This is the cotton canvas and cotton duck I purchased from Spotlight. The white cotton canvas is really nice and strong, and I feel the work I am doing doesn't warrant the cost of purchasing 'artist canvas'. It's been painted with Gesso this morning [well, a piece of it], and will be ready for some collage work in a day or so.
I have had these goodies for a few weeks, but will share them here with this post. Although there is not a designated online shopping website, you can find details here. I wasn't sure what I wanted to purchase when I phoned Peter at the store. He and staff members were most obliging, giving me some details/information, and time to go away and think about what I would buy. I then phoned back for more discussions and ordering. The parcel was here in no time at all, and included was a dear little compact mirror, just the right thing for one's purse - I am always freshening up my lipstick when I'm out [perhaps I secretly eat the stuff!!]. They have a large product range, and are very helpful. Of course, some of us know 'the other half' of the equation - our fellow blogger Frances.
I am working on some collage and mixed media at the moment, but in the last two days have had some internet drama with certain sites. I think my security firewall took exception to something, and I had been unable to access certain 'usual haunts'. I'm hoping this has been resolved, with help from online company IT professionals.
