Hello Bloggers! Welcome back! Today I am posting for a couple of challenges and for T Stands For Tuesday! And I have some questions for you, too! And I will share more of our Maine trip.
First if you are not in the T Gang, please check out Bleubeard & Elizabeth's over at Altered Book Lover, where they host T Stands for Tuesday to see what it is all about! We link up with her with our drink related posts on Tuesdays! So fun and Elizabeth is our very gracious hostess, and I think that Bleubeard keeps her in line.
Also, today, I am taking part with Try It on Tuesday. Their theme this week was to slap it on. That is why I am a tad late, because I have been slapping on the paste, inks, and I don't know what all! This is also for the Art Journal Journey World of Fantasy Challenge.
I applied some Gesso to my Multi Media Canson paper, and then put down a stencil and sprayed with Memories Mists. After it was dry I stamped the Dylussions Birds. Next I used another stencil and applied Inca gold. Then I used a brass dragonfly stencil and applied screen ink. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. Oh, I also slapped on some Washi Tape. I slapped on some distress inks. After I slapped on ink over the butterfly stencil I slapped the leftover all over the page. I got rather slap happy! Also stamped some texture stamps around the birds. I think this is a lot of slapping and rather a world of fantasy as one bird is telling the other to be herself!
Here is a photo of items used:
|almost everything use, I forgot to put the Nuevo drops in there that were the birds eyes.|
There was another challenge: Eileen and Halle challenged us to show our Washi Tape:
|I don't have that much, and rarely use what I have. There are packages not even opened yet and they have been in that drawer for a long time!|
So those are the challenges, now for more Maine photos: These are on a day where our son took us up into the mountains to see many things we wouldn't have seen otherwise! We had a wonderful day!
|Our son took us to a wonderful restaurant on the lake, where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch. My drink is in the photo as well as my tote bag, but not me. I have to take the photo. Hubby and I had our lemon water, but son had Maine Root Beer.|
|It was on my bucket list to walk a little of the Appalachian Trail, emphasis on a little", we even walked on the dangerous last 100 miles trail.|
|We took a detour off the AT to this little falls.|
|Me in front of the Falls.|
Do you watch videos, and see craft items used and buy them, just to put them away and forget to use them?
Do they get old and dried up before you remember to use them?
I am talking pastes, paints, and sprays and such. When I made my journaling page, I found a lot of my stash was dried up. Some of it had never even been opened. These cute little jars of lime color, turquoise, and pink modeling paste by ART have never been opened, and they are dry! My sprays won't spray! And some of my Inca Gold jars of whatever are dried up. I added water to one and it did absolutely nothing, so threw that one out. I am so frustrated that I let this happen.
My last question is : Is there anything I can do other than throw them out?
One more thing, I apologize for last week's post having the long empty space before the comments. I could not correct it no matter what I did. I tried and tried to edit it out, but couldn't. I had a lot of trouble with last week's post anyway. I hope this week's post doesn't do that! I am not electronically smart! I am blessed to have a blog at all, and blessed by all of you! Thanks for stopping by! Happy T Day!
