Ah, Week 2 of Wyanne’s Paint Free class. I resisted the assignment for the whole week.
I don’t really know why; maybe because I didn’t want to paint in pastels, and I would need to for my ‘love thing’.
Maybe because I didn’t know how to paint the thing I loved when I was a child, because it was stationery!
Double sided pastel coloured pencil cases with compartments and magnetic closures, furry stickers, scented rubbers and notepaper, sparkly pens, Caran D’Ache colouring pencils. Even when I realised I could paint how it made me feel instead, I resisted.
And then I sat down to do it, the half hour went by in no time, and I don’t know if I even want to do the possible extra half hour of tweaking it. To me it does capture that feeling of love and excitement and happiness I felt about my stationery things.
It’s not like much has changed anyway; I still go into a swoon over stationery.
Lol Tara, I was a staitionary addict too, smelly rubbers and pretty paper sets with envelopes were my favourites, especially ones with teeny tiny envelopes, I used to spend all my pocket money in 'paperchase' as a kid 😉
Love your painting, such pretty colours, very yummy to look at 😉
I swoon over stationary too. Your painting turned out brilliant for resisting it so hard. Great colours and feeling.
Great painting, Tara. Thanks for the close-up bits. The colors are really delicious. Kathryn
Swooning over this. WOW-this is amazing for only 30 minutes of painting. And it is very happy indeed! 🙂
Thanks guys! What can I say, stationery love never leaves you. 🙂
Lovely! Such gorgeous color.
LOVE the colours. I miss furry stickers! We need to bring back the scratch n sniff!
