A Bit Of This... And...

... a bit of that. Today's post is a mish mash of stuff that I have been creating... starting off with some rather delish Faux Porcelain flowers. These are just so gorgeous and you really can't get the proper "feel" of them unless you see them in the flesh but I have done my bestest with the photo... in fact, I took several until I got the flash to behave lol The colours are actually like that too... tis Distress Stains ... and before they went into the Melt Pot of UTEE they were quite pale... whatever that UTEE stuff does, cor blimey and thrice, it works a treat! I will be using these flowers on a little something I have planned... I just have to get a wiggle on and make it.



So... next in the mish mash is a snippet of my DT piece for Bubbly Funk... which is in more detail HERE... I had much fun making my own foamy stamps with Kling On and Alterations... and Gesso, I lurve Gesso :O))




And then finally I have a couple of bracelets that I have made this week. Yes, it is true, I have a major league crush on all things beady and pearly. Now, you remember I said about that journalling lark and that I would be doing more? Well, I have done some backgrounds and I am loving the freedom of playing... but I can't very well do that when I am sitting watching EastEnders now can I? I can, however, do some beading things... I have one of those lap trays that have a beany bag underneath, so I have a very comfy "table" to work at... there is a drawback however... AlfieCat... he decided that he wanted to sit on Mummy's lap... and have absolutely no regard for the bead mat, beads, pearls, findings etc that were already on Mummy's lap... ahem, picking up beads is not much fun... neither is trying to dig them out from the back of the sofa either... Anyways, I am going to be listing both of these bracelets on my Folksy shop in a mo :O)




And... speaking of AlfieCat... he has been a little beggar again. He came in the other day with a mouse... one of the d e a d variety. He was flicking it up and running around the laundry room and kitchen like a div. So, I tried to shoo him out but he was having none of it. So, I shut him in the laundry room and let him take himself and his "present" back out side through the newly installed cat-flap. (that is a whole other story) Anyways... several hours later I, being of a forgetful disposition at the moment, went to put my shoes on... and iiieeeeeeeekkkkk... my barefoot touched something very soggy and furry. Oh yesh, AlfieCat had left his little present in my shoe again. Memo to self: from now on, check shoes before inserting foot!




Right... time for me to get shifting... I have a date with some rather delightful Distress Stains that just won't wait! Thanks for looking... TTFN

Yikes, Alfie cat is a little devil, isn't he.... Hope you found (find!) all your beads and bits...
Love your tag and the new bracelets! Have fun getting inky.

Beautiful creations, Hels. I can't wait to see what you do with those yummy flowers. And beware the cat flap! We've had a whole host of creatures, both dead and alive come through that door in somebody's mouth. Fortunately, they usually announce they have a "prezzie" so we are immediately on the lookout. Never had one in a shoe. I'm quite sure that would do me in! xxD

Oh what a lot of lucsciousness - your talent just pours of you you brilliant girl you.

I wonder what's made Alfie start that particulary habit.

Fair put me off my lunch just thinking about it

Have a good weekend
