So, this is a Tuesday afterwork before dark shot. some happy mail had arrived (again) off to the left you'll see some PSX Quilt stamps had arrived over the weekend from eBay auctions..on Monday the Art Impressions people arrived and Tuesday the dick blick painting supplies arrived. So, I cleared off a spot in the middle without picking up the mess I made Monday after work doing the card below. ( the folder and such is under that round palette cover. ( it does not fit tightly on it but, I think it will keep the dust out of the paint when you walk away. ( its ceramic and has some paint brush grooves kinda like an ashtray)
A closer look at that. oh I did pick up one cheap paint brush from Amazon to try too. ( I have seen a bunch of videos where the gal doing them loves that line) personally what I have found is since I am just a beginner I have better luck with the black velvet silver brushes so far, so I did pick up a few more sizes of those in round.
just because, they make me happy scale wise I am not so sure the idea I had when I seen them all will work. so also off to the left are bits and pieces of ones I stamped and colored and am pushing around thinking still. ( the sentiment is too large to layer over these quilts and have the quilt peeking out around it.) so, next thing I will try will probably be to heat emboss the sentiment on vellum to lay over a quilt and see.
On Monday the technique lovers challenge watched a video that the gist of it is to add 3 colors to some watercolor paper. dry that off, run it through an embossing folder and then swipe the top of it with a black versafine pad. ( the lady used a very detailed lace folder and it was stunning) I didn't have anything really lacy but, then I found these knots and thought ah ha... dug out this silly little Riley and Co. sentiment ( which happens to be true) and added some finger nail art bling sticker to the corner of that. The point of the challenge was to let the embossing folder take center stage in the design.
So, its snowing here. yeah, I know its still winter but, still. hopefully it will be a quick in and out day at work. We are doing good here and hope you all are too. Thanks for stopping by.
