Wednesday is flying by!
Do you remember Sandie Shaw?
I loved her when I was a kid!
We just missed her 68th birthday on the 26th February.
68. Cor, remember when she used to go on
Top of The Pops barefoot?
Did you know she was the first British act to win
the Eurovision Song Contest?
Essex girl. Dagenham.
Well, today I thought it would be cool to air our puppets,
So out with the Distress Ink on Clarity Card stash!
Go on, pick one!
All I did was split a large polybag down one side and along the bottom, then open it like a book.
Drip a couple of drops of the Distress Inks or Inkabilities,
or any bottled inks you might have
onto one side of the sleeve, spritz with a little water,
then open and close the polybag to swoosh the ink around.
Lay a piece of the A5 Claritycard down on one side; the first will be the darkest.
Close and open the flaps, next one. And so on.
Add the Handy hands…
Colour them in with Distress Markers,
Wrap draw the strings around the fingers.
Don’t they look cool?
Don’t look too happy though.
Maybe he’s just told her he only wants to be friends ;
he doesn’t want any strings attached…
Actually, these two images would be a dream for anybody
who is into altered art or mixed media work.
Let’s make a special blog offer:
Buy the puppets, and we’ll give you the hands free!
Handsfree – get it get it?
I couldn’t resist.
here’s Sandie Shaw.
Come on! Singalongasandie!
It will take you right back.
Did me, dancing around in the corner of the living room
to Top of the Pops on a Thursday evening!
