my creative space: share some inspiration

Last night I went along to Sydney abcd blogger meet-up for art, craft and design bloggers organised by the wondeful Bondville. It was such an interesting evening and so fantastic to meet up with like minded people to discuss a number of topics to do with sharing and blogging. I came away feeling totally inspired by all these amazing women that I had met!

I also had the opportunity to contribute to the goodies bag which we received at the end of the evening, incorporating the topic of "Sharing". I decided to share some of my favourite inspiring blogs - I had real trouble choosing just a few! I really wanted to make a card using watercolour, especially as I haven't played with watercolour for ages! I do love watercolour a lot!

I did some watercolour text artwork and my little man did some of his own watercolour painting too! We had lots of fun and we made quite a mess! Yes I let him use my precious watercolours :)

:: splatter splatter....

He actually gave me the idea to do some fine watercolour splatter all over both sides of the card....nothing like a happy little paint accident I say :) So I splattered away...  mustard yellow, green and a bit of turquoise blue all over the cards, and then once it was dry, printed the text on top.

It was all a bit crazy here yesterday afternoon, trying to get it all 26 finished - painting, splattering, printing and cutting them all out! Phew... I got it done in the end!

I am so please with how they turned out! It felt great to be able to be apart of the goodies bag :) I have to say it felt a bit like chrismas opening the goodies bag when I got home! There so many lovely and inspiring things.... recipies, mini projects to do, cards etc...

It was such a great night and I feel so lucky to have been apart of it! I can't wait for the next one!

Hope you are having a great creative week!
There are lots of creative people over at my creative space...
