Craft and tools

My grand-fathers used to work in his garage at night. Near his car, was a whole room, full of tools put on walls like treasures. It was a hidden place, his secret garden where the smell of magic could be detected from the garden.
The place shown on that video recalls me his place.

On my personal blog louEct.com – Don’t throw your old books!

Do you like to throw things? I don’t like it but I need it so I execute to keep a clean house.
Adding guesso coating (this is what you put before paint) on pages of some books I like allows me to keep the book and be fully happy of that. Once the coating is done, I have a brand new sketch book ready to use without being too ‘precious’ or ashamed to waste a blank page and allow me to just try, be crazy and see what is happening (did you ever had a Moleskine that you keep blank because the notebook is just too beautiful? I never do that with my old ready-to-paint books!).
