Hello and welcome to another week . .
Wot? Monday again?
This morning saw us heading off to Gloucester for a 10:30 appointment which detained us till after lunch - hence the lateness of today's post - for which I apologise. HOWEVER, the meeting went well and our plans to head off north for a few days later this week are back on - we were afraid we would have to cancel our plans but, no - YIPPEE. It's our 24th wedding anniversary on the 8th so we thought a few days away would be nice. Anyone got any nice ideas for places to visit, around Newcastle? It's not a part of the UK we've really visited and, aside from the super, Razzberry Bazaar I have no plans at this moment in time.
Anyhoo, some of you may be curious to see how the canvas is coming along . . . I have temporarily removed the tickets and bulldog clips as I decided to have another go with the distress inks (Fired Brick) around the edge and also more of Sir Tims lovely industrial cog stencils. Then I took some Diamond Glaze and added some clear glass beads, some gold micro beads and some bronze roxx beads and this is how it looked at 2pm . . . . (above and right) check it out . . . loving those Roxx beads so much with the micro beads that I just had to put some more on!! Unfortunately, I also decided that the chain link looks much better than the raffia but I have to work out how to join the two ends as (sadly) Diamond Glaze didn't work! - I've now tried the glue gun and its holding . . . . at the moment! The project is now (as far as I'm concerned) finished. I've been working on this for longer than pretty much anything I've ever tried and I can't see for looking and I've second guessed myself that many times I just want it done now. I DID add some more Roxx AND more micro beads AND more glass beads too. I added pewter metallics rub ons round the outside of my paper artsy melt art and white perfect pearls to the clock face itself. I hope you like it and feel it's been worth following its progress. Now, where to hang it and please don't suggest the loo!!.
