Busy day today, supermarket shop, gardening in the park ready for Sunday and a little housework!!!

I managed to load iphoto and then decided to have a play with the rollers I made....

...I quite like the final result and think I might try this with fabric and fabric paints!!

I used the remaining paint to make a background.....



....then printed with a natural sponge...


....tried out my roller...

....next I used the brush water to colour wash the paper then used my roller..


...simple, but I like it!


Added yellow to the brush water and coloured the paper...


...and used my other roller.

I cleaned the tray and rollers with wipes and when they are dry I can use them for stitching!!


I have had a lovely hour playing and am pleased with the effect of the rollers.
