painting instead of sewing

I wanted to sew today the minute I was awake (but still in bed...daydreaming is so much fun ^^)
buuuut somehow, I never came around to do it...I cleaned up my room, put some felt under my heels, so they wouldn't go all "click click click" when I'm walking.
I don't know about you guys, but I hate it to walk home alone at night with clicking heels. Feels like "I am a victim! Over here, come and get me"...meh maybe I am just paranoid but, hey, I now have felt under my heels and feel a tiny bit safer when I'm walking home alone ^^
Then I made some lunch, cleande up my room a bit more, skyped with my cousin and surfed the net, where I finally got inspired!
but not inspired to sew, but inspired to PAINT!
this blogpost by the ingenious iHanna got me going. She wrote about working with oil pastelle crayons and experimenting with color, and I loved it!
I have three packages oil pastell crayons (for whatever reason) and never used them, cause I didn't like their waxy quality, it was always messy and not in a good way -.-
but she smudged her crayons with her fingers and it looks great, don't you think?

sooo, originally I had planned to finally get down to sewing after cleaning up, buuut fate intervened or whatever instead, I got my crayons and went crazy

 I mixed it up a little with watercolors and watersoluble crayons

in the end I even used my 3D paint =D

And don't think I stopped there!
I put all the crayons away and my acrylic colors smiled at me, invinting me to play... why not I thought and went to work

 yummy color scraping

 those are some big (DIN A2) papers
 and cause I didn't get enough, I even did  collage in my watercolor sketchbook

 with the juiciest of all collage materials: hand dyed (with colored ink) paper towles

the light was crappy as always when taking pictures, cause I love to work late at night and I'm almost never able to wait till the next day to snap some photos :/

Hope you enjoyed it.
I certainly did ^^
