Happy New Year

Only 14 days late in saying it, but it's the thought that counts right!!   Hope you all  had a fabulous Christmas and New Year and are now raring to go with new ideas for 2010!

2010 will definitely be bring some new ideas to Lucy's Designs, and whilst I'll still be working on my bags I hope to be able to branch out a little more and have a go at all those things I've wanted to try but not got around to.

Many moons ago (listen to me, I turned 24 yesterday and already I'm speaking as though I'm ancient!) I used to make greetings cards and tags, a little hobby that developed from my love of Brushos, so I'm really wanting to get back into that, it's been far too long since my room was filled with dyes and dirty paintbrushes!!  I sat down earlier and had a little play with some collaging to refresh my memory, thinking it would be like riding a bike..couldn't have been more wrong!  Was fun to have a play but I think I need to stick to my painting!

These hearts were done with watercolours and - to me - are just nowhere near as pleasing as the vividness you get from Brushos, these are too muted for my liking.  I think I'm just far too OCD for collage, I attempt to be random by putting things at angles and not lining everything up, but I promise you you'll never met a person who organises their random as much as I do!
