Thanks for popping in. All systems go here, so if I want to calm it Kermit, it’s always best to hide away and get arty for an hour. When I lose myself in being arty-crafty, that washing machine head of mine stops spinning, the voices shut up telling me what to think, and I actually seem leave the vortex that is my life at the moment, and just focus happily on whatever it is I am making.
So this evening before I started, I watched this week’s flashback Youtube, where I use gilding flakes with a stencil. It was quite amusing actually; I’m surprisingly at ease doing those little videos. Much more so than on telly. We’re building a new recording studio in the new building, so that will be fun.
I thought I’d have another play; do a similar thing using a stencil too,
but instead of using talc to detack the double-sided adhesive, I used more of the same! It looks so arty and grungy!! Watch the Youtube to get the proper gist,
then check this out…
So at this stage, we’ve got the very sticky tag and words. Instead of using talc, I reached for the gold gilding flakes.
How arty does that look!! Now you KNOW YOU NEED MORE FLAKES! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
I have a little water colour Petite journal, which I use to log new techniques and idea, or looks, or colourways; I love this little book! We sell them too, you know...click here
This is going to be a page in my journal, next to the other gilding flake one I did, using the glue and the lovely Doodleology Heart Stamp. So perfect. The glue’s included in the bundles too.
I reckon this could be the cover of that book I’m going to write one day…
Quite the paradox really! It says a Moment of Clarity – yet you have to really strain to see it. Yep – That’ll do perfectly for the title of my book.
Love & Hugs
