Don't panic! I have n't been anywhere near the kitchen again! No! Friday was hopefully my only cooking exploit this decade and now I am back to much more enjoyable past times ... like ...erm ... making a mess really!
During my class yesterday I found a few minutes to play ... I say few ... there was more than a few but not quite as many as several so I chose not to exaggerate on this occasion ... and you all know how I like to exaggerate ... so this should make for a nice surprise.
Basically I took my demo canvas and my demo rose and I made this ... it is on a much smaller scale than the 8" X 8" the ladies used in the class (5" X 5" I think!) but I quite like it's smallness! I find myself rather surprised that smallness is actually a word at this point!
The rose is painted with Kaiser Mocha acrylic ... the metal is TSS Hot Chocolate and the canvas is painted with Kaiser Raw Umber. I then used some Gold Metallic Alcohol inks on the metal square and generously spritzed anything and everything in sight with Crafty Notions Antique Gold and Tattered Angels Walnut Gold!!! Great fun!
I added Lord Tim of Holtz's fab corners on my return home ... it needed something and I just love those corners ... you know Tim ... the man that can build an Olympic stadium in his coffee break while qualifying for the 100 metres with just a reel of tissue tape and a smoosh of Ranger Jet Black Archival ink! Ya see ... now I am surprised that smoosh is n't a word and neither is spritzed ... but smallness is!!!
Well that is me for today ... I am constructing something else as we speak ...
