Some shadow stamps I've dug out, I thought I'd give that a go at some point this week. I'm also going to have a go at making some out of fun foam, rather than buying any more.
On the left, a really exciting find in The Works!
That mask shape is awesome, lol.
I love masks, I really do, and these decorate yourself ones are only 99p.
I also thought I could use it as a template to make some more, maybe papier mache, or with polymer clay or air drying clay. We shall see,my craftroom is stuffed to the gills with good intentions.
The reason I was in The Works- Tell the truth, why don't I, I'm always popping in there, no excuse needed,- is that its Mikeys girlfriends birthday today, so I needed a pressie. She loves drawing, and The Works always has loads of good art stuff. I got her a fold-up easel/art stand and one of those mini-mannequins I had on my desk a couple of weeks ago. Then spotted those masks.Seemed rude not to bring one home.
Actually there are two bins, a rubbish one & a recycling one, so in an emergency I have two stands!
You can see my box of embossing folders on top of a drawer unit, I thought I would actually use them more if they were in my line of sight, and it does seem to be working. Now all I need to do is put everything in my room in arms reach, and I'll be using all sorts of forgotten treasures.
Well, it might work.
The tray on the desk has some sheets of cardstock I've sprayed with mica mists, and the one on the bin is full of alcohol inked sheets.Those little DL document pockets are ace for keeping scraps in.
I said Mikeys girlfriend, Katy, likes to draw. This is a piece she did for me back last year.
Mikey commented to me last night, that he and Katy were talking the other day about this drawing she did me, a cat with one eye hidden.
And what did they end up adopting? A one eyed cat- how weird is that?
If you've got this far, and wonder what on earth I'm waffling about my mess for, go visit our Leader of the Pack, Julia Dunnit at The Stamping Ground, and show us what you got!
Going back to the ATC swap- if anyone wants to swap with a first--timer, you can email me with your addy via the link on the sidebar. I have no idea what you might end up with, lol, so be prepared!
