Today i can see the top of my desk. I managed to complete a few things on my to do list and catchup. So i feel happy about that. Next, I saw someone called Dawn make a wallet out of a 12x12 scrapbook doublesided sheet so I plan to give it a try. Expect blue air to cross the Atlantic as this is a video and there seem to be no patterns. Here is my desk; to the left some stamps bought andused to make Sympathy cards. To the right is my Art Journal Calander page. This month I am going to just write each day without set little squares and see how it goes. This may be very creative or a frigging mess
There were other projects that grabbed my time like this birthday card for a friend this Friday. Hope friend Kay does not read my Blog. It's a surprise card for her hubby Art whose Birthday is 11/1, All Souls Day so I used a Day of the Dead theme and some craziness . The green is the envelope and this is the card. It was 12 x 9 watercolor paper. I made several layers of stenciling and stamping, cut out the figures, made the labels, not just once but many times, Finally SUCCESS!
Next the inside, after many false starts this..... Pockets to store read time to plan .... bucket list. This is layout is from Dyans class, she made it as a page for a journal, I just adapted it.
Next I finally completed a Sympathy card that was started a week ago . The garbage is full of mess ups that ranged from from inky finger prints to goofy stamping and background messes. I covered the card with Texas made Japanese paper,( and you thought we were all finding oil and rounding up cattle). Yes, a friend's cousin found this printing press and started a printing business modifying Japanese methods, very classy paper. I get the scraps when I'm lucky. The background of the inner part is simply a Tim technique. Its a start.
So that's it. Ms Dunnit the founder of this list has returned from Spin without pictures of her doing the flamenco on table top. She had the idea for this list. (The spell check is not working and i do not know how to add the link). So go to http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ and find out how it works and get to mosey in on the world of artisans, crafters and crazies.
I write this in Blogsy on my ipad and do not seem able to get the spell check working. I just installed an up grade and they create wild and crazy actions. i then check it on faithful PC. What horror I find, makes me feel my first language was not English! Definitely part of a punctuation free tribe.
