I know, it’s been ages since I posted so here I am with all the news about us
Firstly the biggest news is my Car died, yes broke down and had total cardiac arrest that not even my Paramedic hubby could revive it!! LOL. But yes, that meant a new set of wheels. Luckily Michael’s Dad was here and being a former mechanic and salesman himself he got us a great deal on a second hand Tiida, it’s lovely to look at and lovely to drive, perfect for me, small but not too small and well all it needs is Ambowife Numberplates LOL. I blurred out the plates for obvious reasons and I also blurred out the neighbours’ house, I’m sure they don’t want you looking in their windows hee hee. Okay so here she is… more news after the pics of our new little car…
So what else have we been up to, well Michael has applied to Tassie again but we’re not holding our breath. Just waiting to see what happens so we can then get on with life not being in any kind of Limbo. Here’s a pic of him relaxing in front of the TV with Shona, who is loving it obviously rofl, can’t believe the positions this dog gets herself into and still seems quite comfortable.
As for other stuff, Over at the Studio we are talking a bit about Hybrid and mixing both Digital and Paper scrapping and off the page stuff. Well I didn’t know a great deal about this side of Scrapbooking so I went googling and searching on Youtube, well didn’t I fall into the quicksand as it were. There is a vertual mountain of videos showing you how to do this stuff. So I did some paper flowers just to see what all the fuss was about and wow I think I am hooked. What’s another addiction between friends LOL
Here’s some shots of the current work in progress, trying out some shimmer stuff and different techniques
Okay so we don’t have a dining room where we are living, this is the front spare bedroom, and where our dining table resides. So it’s where hubby makes his books he sells and where I play, if I am not cluttering up the lounge room LOL. Just ask Michael!! Sorry hun!
This is the top layer of my latest flower, I used some distress inks and some shimmer to give it this look, embossing powder around the edges of the petals, (where it is darker) and then put a fake gem in some transparent glue to highlight the centre, then shaped the petals how I like.
This is the bottom layer and it’s the same shape as the top, only I pinched the petals after distressing it and adding some shimmer to it, this one is inked slightly around the edges of the petals.
Not glued together yet but this is what it will look like when it’s all finished, what do you think,nice and shiny isn’t it!!
Here is a photo of the shimmer on another flower I made and put in my latest digital CU Kit. doesn’t it just sparkle so pretty!!?
Okay so this is the latest offerings in my store, I know I know I am not pumping out kits like I used to but I have a lot to do at the Studio behind the scenes and it doesn’t always leave a lot of time for playing. Plus I am cleaning during the week.
This is my CU Vintage Paper Flowers set, yes like the ones I just showed you. They are 50% off till the 4th July then full price
As you can imagine they did take a while and some cost to create and then extract so they aren’t as cheap as most of my kits but so worth it I think.
Thanks for reading my lengthy post and I hope to see you over at the Studio for some fun in the Chat Room, this Monday 4 or 8 pm est (USA time) For you Aussies that is Tuesday Morning
You never know what I may be giving away as a treat for coming along
Hugs and be safe
