...ooh get me, going all Francais! That is about my limit for speaking French though... being as I am rubbish at languages (except English of course, although that has been brought into debate of late!) Anyways... today sees another one of my demo pieces from Sunday at Birds in the Barn.
The base is another bit of cardboard (no surprise there eh?) and a piece of gorgeous kraft coloured card that I used for the texture more than the colour on this piece. One side of the card is textured, the other is smooth... cool huh? Anyways, more goodliness in the form of Fresco Paints... some Grungepaste through a Crafter's Workshop stencil and then a whole lot of layering.
The beautiful tulip stamped in black was actually stamped onto a piece of tissue and then collaged onto the base using Glue & Seal (from Ranger)... I love how cosmetic tissue just disappears under the Glue & Seal... opens up a whole range of ideas for adding collaging to a project.
Today I am mostly going to be Nursemaid.... poor old Alfie has to go to the *whispers* V E T this morning... he is having his annual boosters and MOT and also... tis tick-removal-day. The thing has not grown since I soaked it with Frontline... but it is hanging on in there. I am, at the moment, trying to "act normal".... because for sure, he knows when he is going in his box. Said box is still in garage and said AlfieCat is now skulking about in the bedroom... how does he know!!! And... poor old Grim has had to go to the *whispers* D E N T I S T today... broken tooth :O(( I have told him that when you get to a certain age, these things happen *not a lot of help am I?* So, I shall be donning my nursey hat today and dispensing lots of sympathy... only for today though... cos tomorrow... it's my birthday! And on that exciting bombshell, I shall away to squeal out loud in excitement!! Thanks for looking... TTFN!
