5th of June already - I seem to have a lost a few days while continuing working in the garden - well except Saturday which was Daves birthday so we had a lazy day - mmmm - except for the birthday boy who does all the cooking ( it's what he loves to do, so who am I to complain? ha ha) and even though it was a hot day again Dave fancied roast lamb and that's what we had :)
But I did fit in some time to make this A5 page which I am linking to MM&M for 'hair' theme and to AJJ 'circles' which is Rosies new theme for June.
I used a mix of acrylic paint and Neocolor 2's. Used end of bottle caps and black mister ink for circles. Large fancy circle journal stamp from a set of 4 journal stamps by Stampology and words were TH Idealogy stickers.
A couple of weeks ago I got some tape to make some Washi tape but on opening package I was disappointed to find it had writing over it. Last week I saw two posts from Beo and June who had both made fantastic tapes themselves. Inspired by their results I thought I'd try the 'duff' tape and see if it was still usable.... this is my first attempt... but I have since bought some plain tape.
I stuck some strips of the tape onto black Teflon oven liner - this is what I have used for years as a craft sheet before craft sheets were more easily obtainable.
I didn't try anything fancy on this occasion and mainly just used acrylic paint and made a few marks with ends of brushes etc. .. the second one I stamped on with an owl from a set of birds from 'The works'.
I haven't peeled the 'faux Washi' off the sheet yet and I have a feeling I should have transferred them onto another sheet before they dried completely as there might be some unwanted paint attached at the sides.
Will definitely be trying this again and making different patterns as it was fun.
thanks for stopping by,
hope your day has been good.
