Monique. Fab ATC, gorgeous cover for it, a bunch of gloriously old dictionary pages, and a beautiful stamped mail art envelope holding it all. Did I get enough adjectives into that paragraph, do you think?
Also arrived since last week, a lovely card from Debs, (Pen Pot),as a thank you for the flower die cuts. Already putting them to great use I see, thanks so much Deb.
What I'm doing at the moment:( well, what I would be doing if not typing):
I came across the stamped image while I was sorting stuff to take to the crop- another one of those things I keep meaning to use up. I've had the unmounted stamp set, there is four of them, for so long, I have no idea who made them, but they are old style botanical prints. I used a sheet of watercolour paper, torn from the pad, and did the crackle glaze thing, using two colours of acrylic paint, with a layer of crackle glaze between them. Overstamped it with Staz-on, and they are coloured with H2O's, I think.I'd intended using it for a card, but having seen the Art Journals going on at the Crop, I'm thinking to make either an Art Journal, or a Garden Journal, or maybe even an Arty Garden Journal, lol. I'm such a decisive person, ..... not!
By the way, this will get me into all sorts of trouble, I know but yesterday, Tuesday, was Maggies ( Silvercrafters) birthday.......
ENABLER ALERT........... Skip this part if your ability to resist temptation is not at its best!
You name it, they've got it- Canvases, frames, bird houses,magazine holders, journals, shapes, door hangers, animals,torso's, boxes - the list is endless, in wood, card, papier mache, foam, porcelain, glass. Pretty much every craft you can name is covered too- embroidery, sewing, knitting, altered art, decoupage,glass/ceramic painting, Christmas crafts.
Loving my night shifts- never seemed to have so much time to myself, or been less tired. Nights aren't part of the rotation shifts where we work, everyone who works nights has asked for it. I can imagine it being miserable if you HAVE to do it & don't like it- the way I felt about having to do earlies. I was born to work nights, lol. I remember reading a long time ago, that the time of day that suits you best depends on the time you were born, and I was born in the evening. So I'm an evening/night person. Its still weird getting up and its still the same day you went to sleep though.
