“Try Something New” Day

If ColorJoy is about creativity in all ways, then trying something new and stretching is ColorJoyful. June was crazy in my world, I spent more time traveling for work than ever before. I sang, I danced, I knit… all out of town.

While I was on the road, I didn’t post here. Posting becomes harder, the longer I wait in between posts.

Fabulous Heftones at Wheatland Traditional Arts WeekendI’m pushing past the clumsiness by doing something guaranteed to be clumsy. I’m doing something I’ve not done before. I pointed the video camera at my face. Maybe we can connect more fully if you hear me speak?

I think video is great for connection. It’s also good for demonstration. Let me show you how easy it is to use fabric paint to embellish objects.

First I show you my eyeglasses, which were black for over a decade but are now pearly turquoise. In the video I embellish plastic dollar-store earrings. I hope you enjoy it.

Oh… (added later) here are up close photos of my eyeglasses before & after.

    Hi Lynn, It is good to see you posting again. I missed your posts but figured you were very busy. I watched your video with my middle daughter. (she says she likes the paint thing – your glasses and the earrings) Her new thing is creating buildings with legos and making clip on earrings out of bits. My new thing is I recently completed a small towel on a rigid heddle loom.

    Just saw your video. I like this and am glad you tried it. Sadly, I haven’t tried anything new but I’m going to keep my eyes/ears open to a possibility this weekend.
