Thanks for dropping in.
This week’s blogging has been a little erratic, I know.
Sorry, but I have been delighting in the moment.
You know, when you really ought to be sensible and leave the party, but you’re having so much fun you think
and carry on dancing.
I did do a project for you yesterday, so here it is today!
It’s no masterpiece, but I really like the effect.
Sam showed me. It’s really effective and easy.
Spritz a line of water onto a craft mat.
Lightly Puff a couple of Color Burst powder colours
along the waterline.
Special Clarity Price.
Take a piece of our 7″x7″ White Gelli Card
(aka good absorbent white card),
bend it so that the centre hits the line of paint splash,
and rock to and fro, left to right.
Great starting place for a landscape.
I know what you’re thinking.
“She’s lost it”
She lost it years ago!
Still a bit of ink left.
Spritzed again with a little water.
Mmm…which to use…
What do YOU think?
Spoilt for choice!
So there I was in the garden, merrily spritzing away,
taking pics on my Ipad,
when suddenly –
A thermometer appeared on the screen, saying,
‘I AM OVERHEATING!
TAKE ME INDOORS AND WAIT A WHILE BEFORE YOU USE ME AGAIN!!’
Oh My God!
Had I fried my Ipad ???
It was very, very hot to touch.
So I did as I was told for once,
and lo! It came back to life.
Didn’t know that happened, did you?
But then how could you know that living in England ?
Short of putting it in the Aga,
or slipping it under my T-shirt during one of my personal summers….
But I digress…
going with the softer option.
But which stamp?
There is one stamp which makes ANY background make sense:
I LOVE this boy.
click here to buy.
Now to find a suitable Word Chain.
They are, for me, the other stamps which always work.
Next Sunday, July 5th, when I’m back on the TV,
you may be pleased to hear we will be launching
a pair of NEW Christmas Word Chains.
Oh. And a pair of NEW Christmas Wee Folk !
Anyway, back to the art.
Add a couple of birds from the Birdhouse set…
Now I need a background piece.
But all I have here is white card and paint.
Fresco Paints rock!
Funny how an inky line splat can make such a fantastic backdrop.
But talking of backdrops, let’s not forget the bigger picture.
Who needs a picture frame when you have this in the background?
Wow. Either my Ipad’s developed a mind of its own,
or the Ipad fairy has been along to help.
