Yes, puttering was the word of the day on Sunday. I finished up a couple of new pages in the altered quote book and made a visit to the VOA.
The picture on the right and the rose on the left are both done with colored pencils. I made a resolution to practice some new techniques by picking inspiration pieces from my many back issues of Stampington magazines. The stained glass was inspired by an article by Lynne Perrella in the Nov/Dec Somerset Studio.
It didn't go quite as planned. I had intended to use watercolor pencils and then spray it when I was finished so the colors would bleed together. Well, I finished up the coloring and spread out my wax paper and then sprayed it with water. And stood there with my head cocked to one side while I watched the water bead up. I went back over to my desk and turned over the pencil tin and sure enough - I had grabbed the wrong one! My father taught me that a good carpenter could always hide his mistakes.
I grabbed the right things at the VOA and scored this little handful of goodness. I love the little tea ball shaped like a tiny house. The round black piece is a vintage button that someone has glued a pin back on. I am hoping I can pop that off because I love the button just the way it is.
The broach is missing a few rhinestones. I sometimes repair them when I have the right size but I am thinking I would like to try something different. Maybe resin with glitter in it in a contrasting color. Has anyone tried something different?
Don't forget, there is still time to enter this week's giveaway. Just leave a comment on this post.
