This week our Lovely Leader Linda Ledbetter (sorry, was on an L roll!) asked us to turn to page 58 of Tim Holtz's new Compendium of Curiosities and play with our alcohol inks - Yippee! Do go over to see Linda's blog as she has a visitor Angie Lentz who has a beautiful piece. I have to say that my photos are a little more bluey than they are in real life. Hmmn!
I am not allowed to tell you what I have done to create this piece but I can tell you what the theme is. Time and how we are slaves to it. We get up with the alarm, we clock into work, we take elevenses, we have lunchtime, then it is teatime, then hometime, and bedtime. Can you see a theme? Hence why when Hubby and I go on holiday the only important times are the flights otherwise we ignore the watches!!No matter what angle I took the photo I had difficulty capturing the perfect pearl mist.
I have learnt something tonight, if you create a patch of Picket Fence to stamp on then stamp with coffee archival ink, then spray with perfect pearls mist then it disappears! Therefore, stamp after the perfect pearls mist has been applied.
Here's hoping you have a good week! Please do not forget to leave me a comment.
