...holly berries! Teeny ones, too.
These are yo,yo's. They are supposed to resemble berries so they don't get flattened. The first ones were sew fiddly and then I realized I'd forgotten the 1/8th inch seam allowance on the template. I don't think it made much difference! I'd start over as I think I'm doing something wrong but they are little, cute and they do look like berries! ;-)
ABSOLUTELY FREEZING COLD here in central Canada. I wonder what it is like in the rest of Canada?

I will add that these products all work. Success comes from understanding how they work and also how the one who uses them works. I will just try to remember that the Dylusion Ink Sprays are for small 'm' mixed media and not for when I want to get real messy and mix things up in a major way. Lesson learned- Keep creating and don't give up!
Lesson learned: I really mix medias. Collaging on top of these inks doesn't work, at least for me. They are best with dry additions like archival or stazon ink pads and pens. Cut out images with double sided tape on the back would work.
I don't really have time but that hasn't stopped me before so I shall do one quick try with my permanent sprays and then I best clean up and get sewing. I may need to polish a nice apple for the spray teachers!!! lol

I haven't intended to be posting on the weekends but this was all about finishing last week's goals.
This week's prompt is to collage a recycled item. I put a watercolour page inside a cd envelope and I have the backgrounds drying. My flap will be a scrapbook paper.
Gosh., Monday is only a few rotations of the clock away! But I finished!!! pant, pant

After a very long town day yesterday I spent the first part of the morning catching up on my blogs and after being greatly inspired I was ready to dash off in at least 5 directions. But I am doing pretty good at staying focused so I decide to throttle back and I spiraled my way up from the depths of a messy but cold laundry area and contemplated what to do as the hum of the vacuum soothed and sorted all the out of control thoughts. I definitely need to take a deep breath as is evident by the fact I laced my running shoes without my glasses on! LOL
Ahem, speaking of circling... Did you notice the white swirling snow outside. But I am not despairing as the wee geranium start in the window has a cluster of buds!

You do need swatch cards for these.
We punched holes and attached them to a ring. I decided to see what would happen with the punch outs. They have lots of juice!

So I put those walking boots back on and started again!
Today I am changing back into my 'boots' and clearing a space for the DYLP where I can have daily access and then moving on to the next thing which is sewing. Here's to a sparkly day as I kick up things in the playroom!
