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 ...
