What a lovely surprise I had on Sunday morning, there I was, blog hopping to lose myself some time waiting for gesso to dry .... I looked at the list of my followed blogs and my name appeared!!! Woo Hoo ... I won the "First Birthday present" over at Challenges for Days - a site that's a useful tool outlining all the challenges on the days and weeks they appear ... you could so become addicted! Anyhoo, thanks for picking me, peeps, HAPPY BIRTHDAY and here's to your second year!
|Materials gathered, ready to roll|
We were asked to write three words which summarise what we like about ourselves,
and three words about what we don't! Hence FOR and AGAINST
|I picked one of my FOR words and our lesson suggested we journal on a piece |
of card, to fit inside our envelope
|My journalled words are now sealed within my envelope and masking|
tape applied round the envelope, two coats of gesso have now also been applied
Tell you what! No-one (but no-one) is ever going to see what I wrote!
|I "striped" two Fresco paints, orchid and pansy - this is side on from the actual finished project |
not that I suppose it matters too much but ..... thought you should know
|I then sprayed Dylusions crushed grape and Cosmic Shimmer angel mist (with mica)|
drying with my heat gun so I didn't have to wait too long to do the next step
|With modelling paste, Dylusions crushed grape, glamour dust and a spatula|
I produced the freehand dimensional pattern above and then ......
|Same again but this time through a TCW stencil - and set aside to dry - |
hence the distress paint - the perfect size to keep my envelope
propped up whilst drying!
|Adding stamps by: Clear Impressions, Creative Expressions and Close to my Heart|
I THINK this is probably the front!
|Which makes this the BACK!|
Anyway, hubby did his back in yesterday so will be having a quiet day at home .. me? well, I'll be out to coffee with a friend ... possibly by the time you read this!
Have a fab Monday, everyone
