Happy Boxing Day!
Friday’s Blog a private peek?
Well, that’s it then.
Two weeks of chasing around,
Two days of eating far too much,
and today, as always on a day of rest,
the gremlins woke up extra early in my head this morning
and got me all fired up and worried about work and such.
They started with the list of people I forgot to send a card to
and by the time they had flagged up the imminent trip to the States and lack of prep on my part, it was time to get up.
So here I sit, in my little artroom, trying to turn it round in my head and get a positive vibe going here!
It’s always the same.
As soon as I stop, give myself permission to do nothing, those two pesky little shits in my head start tapping on my cranium until I concede, and start moving around again. One’s actually called Wurka, and the other’s name is Hollick.
The only thing I can do is acquiesce.
Get up and get going.
So thank heaven for this blog!
They actually think I am working now, and they’ve nodded off.
They aren’t easily tricked though, so I don’t have long.
Coffee and chocolate will wake them up,
but chamomile tea and a long walk will calm them down.
Thing is, they’ve been with me for that long now,
living rent-free in my head I might add,
it’s quite difficult to evict them – especially at this time of year.
I do have a plan though. Shhh…..working on it…..
Tomorrow, if you fancy, we could do a little project together?
I shall be starting out with a Shaving foam piece, so if you have time today, you could have a go, and then tomorrow, we can crack on!
This is what you want to aim for:
All you need is the following:
Jo’s Bubbles Stencil
Distress Inks: pinks, blues and all sorts!
Low-tack masking tape.
Let me dig out a You Tube Video for you, if you aren’t sure how this works…
So instead of using the Clock stencil,
I’ve just used the Jo’s Bubbles Stencil !
Then tomorrow, all you need in addition, is
a Versamark ink pad,
Clear Detail Embossing Powder
a heat gun.
a couple of Dye-based ink pads
which match the colours you used in the Shaving Foam.
I used Distress Pads:
A couple of Clarity Brushes
Oh! And the little round Blending tools for the edges.
Let’s get together tomorrow and have a bit of fun!!
I’ll blog early, so you have plenty of time….
Just like the old days in The Classroom on Telly.
Cor, that was fun…
I’d better get my boots on and go for a walk over the forest!
Those pesky chappies are stirring again…
Lots of love,
