 I played.
I tried out my new, fat
 Caran D'Ache NeoArt
 Aquarelle water-soluable wax pastels...
and LOVE them!

I finished my last journal and started a new one!

I've always loved and collected HEARTS:
rocks, books, it seemed fitting
to try out new supplies by scribbling
 and doodling hearts.

It felt SO good to play,
to get a bit messy and free. I highly recommend it.

And I highly recommend these pastels.
I drew, then wiped a damp paper towel over parts,
just to see what would happen
and how they would blend and work.

I see many hours...years in this together.
LOVE these.

Have an amazingly fun weekend.


PS. I stumbled upon a tiny Trust Stamp!
Perfect! My WORD for 2013!!
