Painting on satin

We´re on our summer break, and oh, it´s so awesome.

I love sleeping in, than having a breakfast around 10, together with my four kids plus whatever friends are around, crowding around our small table, eating scrambled eggs provided by Ludmilla, Svetlana and Angie, and then floating through the day. I got a lot of stuff done I´ve been putting off all year - work has made so many things impossible - and now I do actually thouroughly enjoy cleaning the fridge and all the bathrooms and doing the laundry.

And there´s still so much time in between!

I went through all the contents of my craftshelf and came up with a box of silk colours.
We got them from a friend from the library who cleaned out her basement, and I suppose those colours are at least 15 years old.

I asked Eva and Ronja to test whether they still worked, and surprisingly, most of them did :)

And since we didn´t have any silk, I just gave them some scraps of satin I once used for an Alice in Wonderland dress I made for Ronnie.

Now we´ve got heaps of bright, shiny scraps - I wonder whether it would be possible to work them into something to wear - I´d love that!


I´m still an atheist and very secure in my faith - but man, this music is simply amazing, and this song is so much fun blasting through the house, windows open, singing along at the top of my lungs :)

I'm sure you'll come up with something great to use your scraps! I have lots of bottle of silk paint sitting around too, thanks for the inspiration and for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!
