Then I got seriously overwhelmed in a new decorator store I found and couldn't resist adding a bit of BLING! to my life.
The ol' debit card has been getting a serious workout as I lay in my year's worth of supplies. I used my Michael's coupons and encouraged the Art store to add to their Dye-na-flo display. I am so happy to have found this product up here in the boonies! They assure me they will be getting more.
Then I got 2 great patterns at my sewing club as well as a free kit for some stuff to help Nina do her part in the overall plan. One project is to carry all my stuff so my hands can be free to grab stuff off the shelves!
Now I didn't use any credit but I need to give credit to the crafters before me who extol the uses of the plastic card to spread glue and paint.
A few drops of paint.
Then use the card edge to spread it.
This gives a totally different look than a brush, sponge, crumpled paper, etc. and is not messy at all. I like it. Now I need to learn how to build up the layers and that's where all my pens, inks, stamps, etc. will be coming into play. I'm totally pumped as the young people say.
As I said, "I need more plastic!" lol
