Do you remember this collage from my 100 post, now it's way to it's new owner. I normally would wait to post this but a) I haven't done a whole lot of crafts/art this week so I needed some topics to share and b) I'm going on vacation next week so not a whole lot of time to get anything else going so I figured I'd post this and get it under my belt :) I tried out a few techniques that I hadn't used before such as using a white out pen and doing patterns with tissue paper. Overall, I really like it for my first attempt of this type of collage. There's a whole ton of hidden words and little doodles that are fun to discover as you are looking at it. I hope the new owner enjoys her "original" art!
Here's some more of the package that I'm sending to Tiffaney for winning the 100th post drawing. I'm a little late in sending it. I've found it hard to get my rear in gear this week so I apologize for the delay!
How's everyone coming on the Spring Fling Swap?? Would you believe there are already a few peeps that have sent theirs?? Holy Smolly on the ball Swappers! They are a few weeks early so don't fear all you last minute peeps, you still have 19 days to collect, craft, and create!! If any of you are like me, it's going to be closer to the end of the swap before I get to send. I'll defer back to the fact the boys and I will be on vacation for the better part of next week. Yeah, Yeah, that's the ticket!! I've got a couple of orders for Seashells so I will do my best to fill my pockets when at the beach. I don't know if I will actually make it to Sanibel Island again---when we went there it was via Dad's boat so being as though I haven't even told him I was coming for a visit YET, I'm not sure he's going to get the old girl revved up in time (how does one even afford to put gas in a big tank like that anymore???? meeshka! is the gas prices going up again enough to make you want to scream??)), but anywhoo...there's tstill lots of good shelling by sis's house near Port Charlotte. She took me to Venice Beach last time and I'm hoping for a second tour of duty this year. (no pressure sis..no pressure..LOL).
My other half or x other half rather just called me from his "secure" location. I probably should have put this sign up earliar and it might of hit home for him when it could have made a difference. Lesson he should have learned: Everything you do has consequences, good and bad. Read The Sign Next Time!!
