Getting Painty & Heroes!
Ever began something that you don’t have a clue about?
Well, that was me the other day. I happen to have a lovely selection of Paper Artsy Fresco paints and wanted to have a go at creating with them.
Me and paint? No. I don’t have a clue where to start.
Helpfully, Paper Artsy has a YouTube channel. You know when watching Leandra that it takes skill, but oh, does she make it all look easy.
It is fun.
Perhaps not as easy, but I learned quick about using opaques as the base and not layering translucents over an dark opaque if you want a bright colour…
Well, let’s call it ‘abstract’ shall we? He he.
I wanted to add some brightness to it using gold embossing powder so added the dashed line, sentiment and circles in the middle of the flowers from this set -‘Simply Tags Everyday’ by Avery Elle
If you go to Make The Day Special here you can pick up a set.
Life has calmed down a little since last week.
The ‘burglar’ incident needs to be sketchy..for obvious reasons. Here’s the précis.
Dodgy bloke with suitcases.
Hubby clocks him.
Sees a smashed window
Follows him (with my daughter in car too).
Ringing police whilst ‘in pursuit’
Tries to flash a police car. It drives away (to another incident we found out later)
Sees a police van coming in the opposite direction.
Slams brakes on.
Jumps out of car.
Runs in front of van, stops it, and tells them to go arrest dodgy man.
Dodgy man caught.
Nicked loot confiscated.
Fast forward a day.
Champagne brought round as a thankyou.
Phewie. I’d like a little slow time this week. Would be nice to have nothing to report!
Let’s see shall we!
See you soon- have received a docrafts box choc full of product ready for Saturdays demo at Sophie’s Crafts in Oldham (10-4) so need to go and create something with it. Let’s just say that there are some really exciting products!
