So glad you could make it.
Before I disappear in here, and you can’t get through the door!
Wednesday’s blog is something new,
so how about a brand new stencil? Or two? Or three?
plus the Flare Frame
are being showcased on the German TV next week, Tuesday.
But I thought it would be cool to not only give our German friends a preview of what to look out for on the TV Show over there,
but also hatch them over here in the UK today!
So here’s a little Scrap-booking kinda piece I did today,
using the Circles Frame.
Actually, I am missing my daughter even more than usual today.
I wanted to spend an hour thinking about her, which is like being with her if I keep the thoughts positive and upbeat.
But I had to work and prep the German TV.
Then it occurred to me that I could do both!
She’s 25 now and a slender young woman.
But she was the cutest little peach as a toddler too!
Needs framing? I think so!
Put the 7″x7″ Circles Frame
and a piece of the same size Gelli Card
through your embossing machine.
Plate sequence for my E-Bosser, from bottom to top:
Replace the stencil and make a hinge at the top with masking tape.
Make a mask for the centre out of a Post-It.
Close flap. We have lift-off!
Pick 3 Distress Colours to use with the Blending Tools.
We still have a great offer on the Mini Blending Tools
and the Free Blending mat
Load up the blending sponges
and start working the colours into the openings.
The round blending sponges work brilliantly
with this particular stencil!
Work around the stencil, thinking colour balance as you go.
All the time I was going round,
I was chatting to Gracie in my head.
I think light, bright colours help keep thoughts light and bright.
I want to flick water at the ink now.
So I have taped the stencil down on all 4 sides and in the centre.
Trying to avoid seepage…
Just figured out my scanner is defunct,
so had to take a picture of the photo.
Hence the fuzz.
You get the picture!
You really do!
You really do!
The pink ink picks up her little anorak perfectly.
She was a little doll.
Check this transformation out!
Yep, that’s my girl…
Love the saying by Dr Seuss, too.
have a great
Lots of love,
