Soooo... I've been sick. fah. Apparently being sick is my new thing because I dealt with germs several times over at the beginning of the year as well. fah.

The interesting thing this time 'round was that I lost my voice. ha. That's never happened before! Well, it was okay, because I don't really talk that much anyway!

I've been taking it easy... and in doing nothing, I was reminded about how uptight I get about all my projects.

Yeah. Uptight is exactly the word.

I don't know why I get that way. My projects are the things I love doing, right? Why can't I just have fun and leave the obsessiveness at the curb?

I just don't know how to relax: my projects always get out of control! ha.

Well, anyway.

colour swatches

I did a few pages of colour swatches in my new art journal. This is the Derwent Inktense set (new to me). Inktense are coloured pencils that have a water-activated dye. It's the first time I've used them, and I think I like them.

Much nicer than watercolour pencils because when you run water over the Inktense, the pencil lines disappear. And the colours are as advertised: intense!

And the "rag" that I used to wipe my water brush off, between colours, is a knitted dish cloth that my Grandma made.
