…but unfortunately I have a date with a massive pile of paperwork instead. This month both my crops fell today and as it turns out I can’t make either of them now. Poo.
But I did want to quickly add this little play-time sample. I was so intrigued by the ALL pencils, and love that you can add them over acrylic paint and they mix with water over the surface. So I just did a pretty basic Gelli print with some bubble wrap and a stencil then added first the white pencil (activated with a wet brush)
then some black pencil for shadows
and a bit of paint thru a stencil and some stamping with lids and white paint, and some more black pencil
I love the painterly effect!
The pull is on black cardstock for a change. I’ve done it before with metallic paint but not played too much with the standard acrylics. I kinda wish I had done it right in my journal – or at least in my experimental play-time journal, but at least I know I can add it by sticking it to a page, cause that’s worked before.
Now, DH ordered me a mug. I think he thinks the fact I am blogging (and occasionally people actually read it) is…amusing. And he thought this oe was a good match for me:
Hard to read as the text curves right around, but it says Be careful, or you’ll end up on my blog. It’s a little small, to be honest, but I have to use it, now don’t I? I do like a BIG mug. He ordered a few of them and this one is probably my next favourite:
Pretty much sums up how I feel about sorting papers…Now I just have to stop my brain from drifting into crafty mode and focus. Easier said that done….
Hope your Saturday is more creative than mine is destined to be. Again, I say POO.
