I know it's back to school for many of you with your kids this coming week and I hear uniforms are proving jolly expensive too. Thank heavens for the likes of George!!! When I was at school there was only one uniform outfitter in Bristol and they were blooming expensive too!
|The above distress inks were "smooshed" on to a craft mat before spritzing. |
I then swept my card through the liquid, dried and repeated till I was happy
|I then smooshed and spritzed this ink and spooned a little |
of the mica powder randomly before smooshing my card again
|Which left me with this - fab eh?|
|I then stamped the "Distress" image using Memento grape jelly (hardly showed, just gave a little texture).|
The Alphabet image was then stamped using the Versafine sepia image on each panel
|Paper Artsy image and Memento grape jelly. The star images were cut out and shaded lilac D.I.|
blended to soften the stark white. D.I. in black soot blended to the edges

Trawling t'internet this morning and found a fab tutorial here .... it's using glitter and maimeri medium ...... which just sounds to me like a lot of fun. Maimeri medium? Reckon it's probably just a clear gloss medium - and I HAVE some of that already but I might look in to that a bit more
And now for the Friday Funny, this week courtesy of my pal's Liz and Graeme - I HOPE you like this and I'll probably see you in the bed next to mine then!!!
The Bathtub Test.
During a visit to my doctor, I asked him about my Dad. I said "How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in an Care Home?"
"Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub."
"No" he said. "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"
ARE YOU GOING TO PASS THIS ON … OR DO YOU WANT THE BED NEXT TO MINE? :)
