Been playing again but ……..

…… I have not been very ‘challenging’ this week due to the fact that my daughter arrives home from university today for the Easter vac. This Mother goes into overdrive, overload and over-do-it.

Serious Now :) Sam who’s helping Hilda out over at LotsToDo told us to, words to the effect “BOX IT” I used the technique Sam at TechniqueZone demonstrated with photo frames and the Cuttlebug magic machine and acetate and inks and and and … I don’t know of metal foil tape (if someone can enlighten me as to who the manufacturer is) So I used a thin ribbon from my stash to secure/bind my box.This is a scan and the colours came out soooooo different ……

and thought, take a photo ….

…. The colours are still not right!

Anyway, we’re still on the playground. I’ve got this thing about corrugated cardboard. My latest IN THING. I stamped onto ClingWrap, doing a sort of Mask It Move! I then spread some liquid glue over the corrugated cardboard that had been gessoed and painted with one of my favourite colours. The ClingWrap moulded itself over the corrugated board and looked rather ‘kewl’

And then I stamped one of my favourite stamps onto ordinary brown, lunch box, butcher paper. It seeped through so I flipped the image and glued it behind a photo circular frame, attached a piece of acetate to a square frame that had been sent through my CuttleBug, inked and mounted it onto a piece of my shaving cream experiment. This will no doubt form part of a card at some stage.

Love Life, It’s the Only One You Got Right Now!

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for all the wonderful comments.
