Well, the summer holidays are drawing to a close for a lot of us, and I am no exception. Though honestly I can't wait for winter to get here at this stage. There is a swarm of wasps in my garden. Literally. (we have an apple tree, and they are falling off it now, so the wasps are attracted to the apples I suppose). I am kind of afraid to go out there at the moment, so I really want the cold to come so they will just die already. With my luck we will probably get an indian summer. =
I have this craving for pastels. I can't really describe it as anything else, it just feels like a craving. Almost like you would have for food... The thing is, the sound of pastels on cartridge paper reminds me of chalk on a blackboard, and it makes my teeth hurt (and gives me the shivers) O.o It's weird, I know, but does anyone know of any paper that doens't cause this? It would also be nice it if allowed for the same "smudgy" effect as cartridge allows. If I can find one, I'm gonna dust off my pastel pencils and have a crack at the A2 sketchbook I have tucked behind my desk...yum...
