Something a little different
Well for about the last week now I have been in a mojo slump. I have not even been anywhere near my craft desk in fact. So tonight in desperation I went through some of the blogs I have booked marked but haven't had much of a chance to get to. One of which is this blog *e* & the flickr group 52Q a year of mini art journelling. This is something that I have admired for ages but wasn't quite game enough to do. So tonight I decided that I am going to do it. I probably wont join the group so that I don't put any pressure on myself. But this is such a good way for me to try out new techniques, as the tags are smaller than cards. It also lets me use my non Hero Arts stamps & not feel guilty about it.
So tonight I tried out a few newish things for me & basically played with colours (can you tell I love blues & greens at the moment?). I have used the emboss resist, spritzing distress inks on a kraft mat & smooching the paper in it. I also tried Jennifer McGuire's latest video here at the two peas website. Which shows how to create unique backgrounds using a variety of techiques.
I also want to say a huge thank you to the lovely Anne who on her blog here shows how to customise your blogs in easy to understand instructions (& most importantly pictures) than even a techno challenged person like me can understand. Have a great night/day & happy crafting every one TTFN
