Curiously Brushless...

... oh yesh indeedily, it is time for my fave challenge in the world... the Compendium of Curiosities II. The brainchild of the lovely Linda Ledbetter, all the deets on this weeks challenge are HERE - based upon the Compendium II by Tim Holtz. This week we are looking at Page 49 and the Brushless Watercolour technique. I won't go into great detail how I made the tag and what I used because that is already HERE on The Stamp Attic blog.


So, did you miss me? What? You didn't realise I wasn't here? Actually, I got home late Monday evening and spent yesterday catching up and faffing... and today I am busy with samples and stuff so I can't really sit and natter for too long... although I would love to because I have fashioned myself some air-con in the Room of Stash... oh yes, it is a tall tower fan, sitting right next to me, actually probably a bit close but... it is keeping me wafted and cool... which is what we need right? Anyone else have a Room of Stash that is hotter than a badger with sunburn?


I, in my own usual way, made a complete do-dah of myself on Saturday. So, we are all chatting about dogs, I am saying "we hope to get one soon" And one of my lovely ladies says "what breed?" So I says, "Springer" and then went on to say that we had thought about a Cocker but decided on a Springer. And then I says.... " there is a cross between a Cocker and Springer though.... I can't remember the name... " You know like a Labrador and a Poodle is a Labradoodle... and a Cocker and a Poodle is a Cockerpoo? Well, I gets this name in my head and my brain is going "NOOO, don't say it, don't say it... don't say it... " But I did say it... quite loudly so everyone heard... I said "Springy C___" I shalln't type the full word, don't want to offend ya... all I will say is it is the name Cocker without the e and the r. Ahem, quite. Actually, the name is a Sprocker, now why couldn't I have thought of that then eh? Upon that note, I shall say TTFN... thanks for looking!!!

PS... There has been a change in scheduling on Saturday so I won't be doing my shows on Create & Craft, I am just waiting on new dates and will let you know then :O))

Great tag - love the colours used. Sounds as if you had good weekend even if the dog episode made you blush - certainly made me smile. Keep cool

Redanne said...

I don't remember you saying that on Saturday but if I had I would have split my sides and be crying like I am now!!! Oh dear, OK now, love your tag but then you have used my favourite balloon stamp. The colours are amazing, must off and get my book out...........thanks again for an amazing day on Saturday. Crafty hugs, Anne x

ROFL .......oh Hels....you are a hoot! But you nearly got it right and were away from home ! Loving this piece and will take a gander later at linda's tut. So so disappointed that your shows are to be re-scheduled : ( Reckoned I would be able to watch them live.....just for a change: )

I am heading to bed as could not sleep last night and eventually had to get up 4.30am. (think its my age as it was cooler in west of scotland last night ) Managed some blogging and crafting though............priorities x

Take care and look forward to seeing more crafty creations and stories tomorrow xx

That is so funny Hels. Tag is brilliant as ever.

Need another heads up on where to get the glue you use. LOL

Joanne said...

You are such a hoot. Would hate to put you off a Springer, but our Susi has one and apart from wetting all over the place, it has developed arthritis, had to have a£2,500 operation on its leg and now is having hydrotherapy. She's only 3yrs old. Big problem with the breed aparently. I'd stick to cats if I were you.......
Hugs special lady

I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. Why does that happen!? I hate when I stick my foot in my mouth!

Buttons said...

I think the Kennel Club should put you in charge of naming all new dog breeds!!!!:) Just love your balloon creation - will now head over to the deets before posting my entry for this week.
Stay cool. Hugs, Buttons x

Sue said...

Why do our heads say 'don't say it, don't say it' but we just go straight ahead & spurt those words out! So funny. Lovely tag - just love that balloon. Sx

Linda Ledbetter said...

I love reading your blog, Hels-- you're the rare combination of ridiculously talented and hilariously fun! Wish I could see you on TV!

Your brushless watercolor technique is fabulous, the colors are yummy! Fantastic stuff, as always!

Yep, my studio is upstairs and south-facing with a big sliding glass door. Hotter than the dickens in the summer. The AC doesn't make a dent.

Oh Hels ... how could you!?!?!?!? Oh yes, only YOU could get away with it!!!! LOL Hilarious!!!
Anyway, Springers are gorgeous, my cuz has had 3, now have two boys, different ages but all have had back problems, the middle one, now 11 cost him over £10,000 for a huge back op and he was in a back splint for weeks, poor thing. That was when he was only young. Been absolutely fine since :-)
Gorgeous tag, love that balloon
