It has dawned on me that I am going to sound like a right snooty wotsit when I tell you that I don't "do" left-overs! I can't help it! If I could I would ... it drives John to distraction ... but I just can't!
It is probably best if I explain here what I consider to be a left-over! Okay ... so you open a packet of ham ... use a slice ... put the remaining ham back in the fridge ... the ham in the fridge is now left-overs ... and I won't eat it! Don't look at me like that! I know it's bad! I know people are starving! I just can't help it!
Sometimes I would love to revisit a plateful of Chinese takeaway that I could n't eat at the first sitting ... but the truth is ... as soon as it goes cold ... well it's left-overs ... and I cannot bring myself to eat it!
Okay ... so now I shall get to the point ... the point is ... this piece is made entirely of left overs ... the left over embossed card stock from my Valentine box ... left over brads from my journal box ... left over Grunge paper from my class kits ... even the frame was half painted and discarded ... the god of left overs would be right chuffed with me today ... I can tell you!
If you are wondering about the lush colours ... well they are Lord Tim of Holtz Adirondack Color washes ... you know Tim ... the man that turn the sea from salt water into chocolate while transforming the clouds into Candy Floss with just a new Mini Mister bottle and a single Idea-ology Foliage element!
Course I would n't be able to swim in the chocolate Sea ... or indeed eat it ... because someone else would have touched it first ... and that is a whole nother issue!
