This morning, whilst watching the Shanghai Grand Prix i managed to join 3 rows of the blanket together...took the whole race, only stopping for one loo break and whenever Martin Brundle got excited!. i have 3 more rows to join to this then the border can begin. At the moment i am thinking i will do a row of white, light pink and 2 rows of navy as the border, then decide about a decorate edge.
the first half joined up....
Yesterday i went to the Stamp and Scrapbooking show at Ally Pally for the first time in a couple of years. i've been getting the itch to make something with paper for a little while now, thanks to all the inspiration on pinterest and my mate Ally's blog re art journalling.
I treated myself to some stamps and some new inks, as the ones i currently have, i've had for about 7yrs and are probably well past their sell by date!.
when i got home i started to play with the glimmer mists i have.....i wont show you attempt one....it got a bit dark in colour!. however this is the second attempt, with some added stamping....
its an A5 size journal from Oz (kikki k, whos products i love!).
then this morning i decided to try a paint technique i read about last night and this is what i've come up with, which i really like!....
its blue, yellow and white initially, then a bit more white and finally some red, all scrapped round the page, with the shell rewards card....it might as well be useful since i have no car now!!. the brush was only used to stir the white paint that was a bit gloopy!. really like this technique.
i shall wait for it to dry before i think about the next stage!.
if only it was a 4 day weekend again, cos there isnt enough time to play!!.
