WOYWW - #163

Hello gang, hope you are all having a great week.  I am typing this on Tuesday as I have an early doctor appointment tomorrow morning, only the third one this week.  Dr. is doing some tests on me. 

Last Saturday I attended another technique class with Joey Long of Keeton's Art and Office Supplies.  I have laid out 5 of the projects that have not been put to use yet.  The butterfly on the black background was done on vellum with white embossing powder and colored with Twinkling H2Os, so you cannot really see the color as it is so pastel, but very pretty in reality.  Did the tag with a background lined stamp and Tim's Distress Inks (sorry don't know which ones), but I like the way it came out and I may use the vellum butterfly on it with a saying stamp at the bottom.  The top butterfly was stamped with embossing power on the page of an old book and colored with my colored pencils.  The next one is a chunky piece with several layers of embossing power and then stamped and sprinkled with various powders, mica flakes, etc., my first experience with that technique.  The last piece was stamped in gold and colored with the H2Os.  Hard to see that I colored it purple.  We had another project using some mica powder and I did not like working with them at all, project looked terrible so I ditched it.  Well better not go on too long here.  Thanks to all that may drop by.

WOYWW - 161

Oh my gosh it is already going on 5:30 p.m. Brits' time and I am finally getting around to doing something for the day.  Worn out from doctor's appointments this past week and at least 3 more to go so far.  Hopefully these are all a precaution and no need to get alarmed yet.  Won't go into all now.  I am still trying to figure out how to use my latest new fish stamp for my son's birthday coming up.  Need to work on that some more today.

Today is the 4th of July, Independence Day for all of us in the United States.  Going to a sorority sister's house for a cookout this evening.  She lives by the river a few blocks from where they set the fireworks off, but Cheryl and I have already told her we will come and eat and visit but do no intend to stay and walk to the river for fireworks.  I quit doing fireworks a long time ago.  

Well here is why you are really here,  my table.  Hasn't really changed much from last week except for the addition of the Twinkling H2O's.  Thanks to you who commented to me last week.
The paper with the fish to the left is my experimenting with the H2os.  Need a lot more practice!  The small blue is a mesh stamp I hope will look like a fish net, once I get the fish looking fairly good and layering it onto the mesh.  My hands don't always carry what I see in my head down to the card.  LOL   Have a great week and a safe and fun 4th to my fellow Americans.
