hmph. So I have been so out of it lately.. not feeling well.. totally “off”.. so listen to what happened.. k? you listening?
So I had to run some errands.. go to the bank, get some food etc.. you still with me? I get to my destination, ready to put my bank card in the machine and guess what? NO WALLET. no wallet! NOOOOOO WALLLET. I looked everywhere!!! NO WALLET.
So I get myself back into the car, try to take a shortcut home and this is what I end up in
so of course I post my ANGER on facebook and whilst cursing to myself I am belting out TUNES. THANK GOODNESS one of my favorite songs came on..
So FINALLY I get through this MUCKNESS.. I get home basically HYSTERICAL.. Search the house like a maniac lunatic.. NO WALLET.
So knowing me, I go back to the car and guess what was next to me the WHOLE TIME. my wallet. Need I say more? I almost cried.
Ever have one of DOZE-DAYZ? Hmph.
Ok I feel bettah now.
So I did some crafting .. and I thought it would be fun to show you the evolution of a collage/painting! I was posting on instagram but IF YOU AREN’T FOLLOWING ME… nudge nudge poke poke….. hehehe
Ok so here is a random collage where I used vintage pieces, cards, ephemera and some newer scraps.. I don’t really think of where I place the papers.. I just have sooo much fun tearing, cutting and GLOO-ing.
Another thing I just learned from a class I am taking is to scan the collage and reuse it in future projects! BRILLIANT! So If I use originals in my work, I will always have copies to rip, tear and use again! And even if you scan your progress.. there will be even MORE elements to include in future work.. brilliant… no?
In the next photo, I used Martha Stewart paints (ON SALE THIS WEEK AT Michaels for 40% off- thank me later..LOL).. I used PUTTY, SUMMER LINEN, and ARTICHOKE. I LOVVVE these paints.. Of course I own all the expensive ones too but the nice quality of cheapy paints is that they have a low pigment load which makes them SHEER.. which is what you want when you layer colour… CAPICHE? LOL (my mother used to always say that to me).. meaning you understand?
Here I stamped and doodled a little and outlined my “chicklet”…
And here she is.. with her crooked mouth and her sad eyes… LOL.. but I love her. I stamped a message.. it’s kinda like I am talking to myself.. trying to remind me of certain things.. so when you see me stamp “messages” on my canvases.. I’m usually talking to myself LOL
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial.. Im DYING to make another video..LOL..and I will soon!
Bellaland is actually moving this week so we are in a bit of chaos!! IF you are waiting on an order, please email me as we cannot work on it until Monday as we are trying to get this arranged as quickly as we can and as smoothly as we can.. Will keep you posted on the progress!
Oh and did I mention a release? A wintery one? A JOOCY one? OMG.. TDF.
Mwah to da sistahs who “listen” to me vent
Oh and if you haven’t heard THIS song yet, I suggest you blare it. It’s so inspiring… I LOVE “FUN”
