Simples...

..is the title of todays offering!   Many thanks for all the support, messages, emails etc for the Pick of the Day shows.  I can safely say that I have now more or less recovered the use of my brain and can string a sentence together once more.  That last show on Wednesday... truly showed my capacity for being a div lol  Still it was a good one and everyone seemed to enjoy it!  BTW, very lots actually does mean... very lots!   Anyways, on with todays simple art!
 


This is a large rectangular MDF plaque... covered with paper and distressed around the edges with Gathered Twigs to give it a frame.   I cut a heart shape from more of the papers and popped it onto card to make it sturdier and then set about making some UTEE embellies for it.    I have some gorgeous silicone flower moulds so I used three of them to make the bundle of flowers - using Marbled Plum and Olympic Gold UTEE's together and forming little leaves by dipping leaf shaped shrink plastic into clear UTEE I had dyed with Paris Green Melt Ink... wow, I loves those new Melt Inks!  As the shrinkage happens, the leaves started to curl, so I whipped them out of the pot whilst still a bit curly and they made perfect little additions to the flower bundle.  The background of the plaque was stamped with the Chicken Wire stamp (love that stamp) using Gathered Twigs DI too.


Today I am mostly unpacking boxes... then repacking them in readiness for my trip to Sparkle Dreams in Swindon tomorrow. I have a lovely Mixed Media Masterboard class happening and I can't wait to go and get inky with all the lovely ladies who will be joining me.  After all that packing and unpacking and repacking etc, I shall be sneaking off into the Room of Stash for a little play with some ink and paint... feels like such a long time since I did any playing, I need to feed the Ink God inside me!   Right, I shall away... thanks for looking and have a great day!  TTFN
