First Steps



After, starting the New Year with a little bit of Disney Magic, mid January saw the return to normal life, and playing the catch up game, so as February approaches its time to keep one of the New Year promises, to write the first entry on the blog.

First step is often the hardest so I leap straight in.

Since it is intended to be a craft blog, the next jump is to share something arty.

Here's a page from one of the journals finished October-ish last year.

I stuck a pretty serviette to page, think I used multi medium.
covered with blue acrylic paint.
Next layer is white acrylic paint, watered down a little and sponged over a mask.
Then it sat for a few weeks, (I still have a canvas at this point waiting for an idea.)
Then one afternoon while playing with the Cricut, out comes these shapes and a few more.
After several rearranges of the shapes, I inked the edges with Distress Ink, I think Weathered Wood, then stuck them on.
The above is the end result.

It still makes me smile.    


End of January is fantastic time for the craft world, we get to see all those new products released at CHA
