Loving a cool morning

Delightful cool start again to the summer's day that will follow.

I have been forgetting to show you Val's stitchings of some of my give away stitchings
She made into a quilt & used some buttons to embellish.
Great to see it stitched ...



I found these stencils yesterday made by 
I spent some time at their booth in a market place yesterday....in Life ??? in Strathdale Bendigo
So many stencils I love ...
the furniture chalk paint 
&
there was milk paint
furniture & signs


Came home with these 2
tried them on my canvas display boards last evening...
They work well for me...


Yesterday was a day of trying new things.
My palette of paints have to be changed as I cannot find anyone in Australia distributing the Americana Deco Art acrylic paints...
the distributor now only brings in selected stuff.
So I was having a bit of a tantrum with myself over the being forced to use another brand or for heavens sake different colours !!!!!
I paint for designers as well as my own work and some have a set colour match & now I cannot find that...
So was talking to myself as I drove from PO yesterday
Just go & try a few pots of the colours now on offer & see...
You know might be a good thing...
So there I was buying retail which was fine as a pot does go a long way.
There were 2 blues which do really work nicely & transistion will be easier...
I have mixed some of my other paints here...
I came back to pick up those yellowy colours as I remembered my new tea & coffee range to come in & it'd work for that !!!
It is not all what I am wanting though as many of the colours being imported are bright colours like what Sue used on her fishes...
Funny things we have to deal with at times...when working ...

Your stutcheries look beautiful all made up. It is annoying when you find something you like and use and then find it is no longer available. ..hope you are happy with the new ones you find.
