Thank you God for the gorgeous Spring like weather! I have even been out walking the last two days! So energizing! But, I am still, scrapping and crafting, and even played yesterday with my Pan Pastels and created a journal page. I like to think of it as my technique journal. I watched several videos and found a cool technique. First, I stamped with VersaMark, then rubbed the Pastels over the sayings I stamped. It really worked. Then I applied paste over stencils. I also sprayed TH Distress Stains over it all. I stamped another saying on a separate piece of paper then gessoed it on my page, then used some Faber Castell Gelato on the edges. I colored the suns with gelattos, too. I added a die cut butterfly that I edged with gold Gelato. I added a metal button that I colored the sun with an orange Copic. I had fun with spray, paste and pastels! I couldn't believe how you could stamp with VersaMark and not even see what you stamped until after you rubbed the pastels over it. Pretty neat, like magic!

For Elizabeth & Bleubeard over at Altered Booklover, it is T Stands For Tuesday! So for the T Gang I will post my drink. We went out to eat at Chick N Max, but I didn't have my camera. I thought their pictures and décor were kind of neat, so next time I will take my camera. But here is one photo off their website. And I brought my drink home so I could get a photo of that.
Also, I am getting ready to go to a scrap retreat this week-end. I am taking everything but the kitchen sink! LOL I am taking my electric teapot, and my large number digital clock that I can see at night!
|I am adding things as I think of them.|
|These aren't fully packed yet.|
I found a quote on Riley's stamps online that I love that says;
" I'm not a craft hoarder. I'm the curator of an extensive private Craft Supply Collection."That describes me!
That is it for this week's Tea Party! Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by!
