It’s all good

Yes, I think it is when you can scrap your In-Laws in a positive light
I think I’ve developed an aversion to cardstock – really!

When you’re short and all your jeans need altering, good idea to ask for the cut-off bits to be returned so you can wack them through the Cuttlebug!

some paint, rubons, felt heart…and they’re all happy!

Let’s not forget the 123 Challenge for August
the word = SUNSHINE
the colour = YELLOW
the technique = MISTING
(and, I’m pretty sure I’m the first to make Iced-Tea sexy *snort*)

Okay, the trick is to lay everything down before you mist.
Do all your painting with the bubblewrap or corrugated cardboard, pop your photo on, do more painting on the photo (gasp) and then lay down your alphas.
Make a mask for your photo so you don’t lose the poor thing, then mist lightly, on an angle so it doesn’t look like a huge blob.

Carefully, remove the alphas (mine were old Kaisercraft wooden alphas) and when dry, outline with a white paint pen (from the newsagent).
You may have to do this a few times to get a solid outline…in between glasses of iced-tea!!

Finally, add more bubble wrap to soften the edges of your misting, add some token flowers (coz it’s eeeeasy) and a cute butterfly.
It also helps if you have a gorgeous background patterned paper to begin with. This was from Bon’s Scraps shop. It’s been restocked so no excuses now!!!

Monthly Challenges are going off everywhere!! A good time to stop and drink it all in…with some iced-tea perhaps????
Happy creating.
It’s been an “eventful” week…glad it’s almost over!!
