Volunteer , wild SunFlowers that is... They've just sprung up in a few places around my dirt yard and i've decided to leave them.. . The other day hubby poured some water on a few of them from the melted ice in his cooler and we were rewarded with the first bloom!!
They've come up in the most convenient places, even lined the driveway in a nice straight line.. like i planted them there myself.. lol We'll see what happens... Pictures to follow if they bloom nicely.. Speaking of Spiders... this 'little' chap was guarding my front door this week... He seems to have since moved on.. I wish he had stayed honestly.. He's a good bug eater.. As long as he understands his place is outside.. we're all good...
There's been plenty of time for crafting and painting rocks... I'll leave these for someone to find on one of my walks.. I have a story to tell about painted rocks if anyone cares to hear it let me know. Its a little too long for a multi subject T post.. It will have to have one on its own i think.. lol
Time for an old project... First time i've ever made a clay face... Looking forward to play with clay some more..
This leads to my ticket for T... my coffee mug keeping me company while i glue on petals to a paper mache ball..
Drill a hole in the ball... just big enough to fit a cinnamon stick..
Ta Daaaaaa !!!!!I think it turned out cute... I won't be making another one.. BUT i have quite a few petals leftover.. I don't know about sending them over seas but they are pretty light so anyone in the US that would like the leftover petals I'd be happy to send them to you ... first come first serve.. just let me know.. I'd like to see what you make with them..
I've been working on my ATC's for the Tparty Anniversay Swap.. And i used all mediums new to me.. ofcourse...loll.. I used yupo paper and alcohol inks and i don't have much experience with embossing ink and powders.. that gave me alot of trouble but i managed a few of them that were passable at least.. I don't think the embossing powder liked the Yupo paper. Even after using a 'no stick powder bag' the embossing powder still stuck to the Yupo paper terribly.. So i had to take a paintbrush and brush off the excess powder... which is a pain in the a**..... Also any tips on getting the sticky off my stamp would be appreciated!.. So much fun working on such a small scale... I hope your joining in the ATC swap... I'm looking forward to seeing what you make! Happy happy T day everyone!! Thank you for stopping by to visit. It means alot to me! Hugs! deb
