...cor blimey and thrice! It is nearly November! And... it is Tuesday! (bet you are glad I told you that... hahhaaa) and it means it is my day for The Stamp Attic DT. This week I have mostly been playing with Metallic Distress Stains and have done a little show and tell HERE along with what I think of them... and a couple of ways to use them. Next week I shall be doing another show and tell and will be using them in more different ways too. To see more pics of my finished tag, please do go and check out the post. Here's a sneaky peek anyways.
You will see I have made Pine Cones... and... I have found a doddle way of putting them together. I have tried the cocktail stick and hot glue method, whilst it works, it is a wee bit dangerous for me being as anything molten hot is bound to end up dripping onto exposed skin. So, when I was making them I had little think.... "wonder if Cosmic Glue will do it???" Well, it works perfectly for the Spellbinders Spiral Blossoms... so I tried it... and yep! It works! And... it is forgiving too, it glues the bottom of the Pine Cone pretty quickly, I only had to hold it for about a minute, then I started to bend the petals ( Know they aren't petals... can't think of the proper word...) and then because the base has stuck, you can then get some tweezers and pull the middle upwards so it turns from a flower into a pine cone! Cool huh? Anyways... I shall away... I have a very special birthday boy visitor arriving today and I am sooo looking forward to seeing him! My Aged P (Dad - my affectionate nickname for him) is coming to stay for a couple of days... and... ssshh... he is bringing... Proper. Northern. Fish. And. Chips! Yes, by the time he gets here they will be clap cold but... pop them onto a rack and into the oven for about 20 mins and they are back to gorgeousness.... and there will be mushy pea's too! I can't even begin to describe how happy my little chops will be whilst I am scoffing said Fish & Chips, maybe I will get Grim to take a photo lol Right, time to sign off... thanks for looking........ have a great day and... to all my American friends... PLEASE STAY SAFE!!!! TTFN
