Here is yesterdays work, I think they call it 3D Decoupage - Not too bad for a first attempt I thought, though I do need a better pair of scissors for the job.
My Mum is the best card maker EVER, and doesn't read my blog so she had no idea this is what I was doing, when I called there yesterday she presented me with a goody bag of card making things she thought I might use in my art journal. Of course when I told her I was having another bash at card making she gave me a piece of the decoupage she had claiming I had 'no chance' of doing anything with it but could have a go.
Here is a card I made with some of the papers she gave me.
The template frame I ink sprayed and varnished, adding some sequins. Next I need to find out which glue to use for those flowers as I have little faith they are actually going to stay put.
Getting so involved with the above and enjoying the process found me spending over 4 hours stood up yesterday, not a good thing for the old back. So, today I have been organising and clearing some space so I can do the cards sat down in future, I have done a good job but again been on my feet all day doing it, no pain no gain eh? I now have a place to sit to draw and paint too, that will help as I usually do it standing or sketch in a chair with poor lighting.
With all that, and a few other chores today I have only managed one thing, its another decoupage effort. I looked at the calender and next month have two anniversaries my parents and Steve's so I have started my first anniversary card.
Having ordered some card blanks I was all ready to go, when I got an email today to say they have 'just' been dispatched, and that is second class! As I have very little patience to wait tomorrow will find me dashing off to find some card blanks in town, we only have one over priced craft shop but I am forced to visit, must remember to just take enough money for the cards and leave bank card home! I have a tendency to get carried away in a craft shop, sure I am not alone!
