Wall color…after we painted the room with the primer we were surprised at how bright it made the room not to mention how much bigger it looked! SOOOO, I decided to go with Ultra White ~ the paint guy showed me the diff. and it’s amazing how much brighter the ultra white is compared to just plain old white.
Didn’t get much done craft wise this weekend other than finishing up another square card
Phinny & Lynn made some really awesome cards using this sketch ~ isn’t it fun to see how people take a sketch and make it their own! I just love it!!
Thanks ladies for sharing your creations!!
Thermal Fax Paper ~
If you remember a few weeks ago I shared some creations using Thermal Fax paper…Odeen e-mailed to tell me that she had been playing with her fax paper as well….
A funny thing happened about a week ago. My son asked what I could to get the fax paper to feed properly in my very old fax machine, so I put in a new roll. The old one had been in there several years, and I thought it was because it was near the end of the roll that it wouldn't work properly. Needless to say there was another problem with the rubber roll that had hardened over time that caused the misfeed. In short, I couldn't see throwing the old paper and roll out, so decided to experiment with it. I got out my Hotmarks and used one of the tips to draw designs on the paper. Then I colored in the images with an ink dauber. It worked. I used the Hotmarks tool to draw with, because I think it is a lower temp than a wood burning tool and wouldn't burn the paper.
Hotmarks has many shapes and letters that could be stamped on the paper, and I was intending to use them, but low and behold you came up with a different slant on things.
Joseph’s Coat Technique
Eiglas hadn’t used this technique in years but after she saw it again here she decided to give it another go. Be sure to check out her results.
One last thing…
I know this has nothing at all to do with crafty-ness or anything but I just had to share this fun photo…
We have chickens on our farm and in addition to the regular size chickens Bob (youngest ds) has a couple banty chickens which are also laying eggs. We found this itty-bitty egg Saturday evening ~ it’s sitting beside a regular sized chicken egg so you can see JUST how small it really is. Isn’t that just too funny! Bob ate it for breakfast Sunday a.m. ~ it ended up being about the size of a thumb print – LOL!!
Well, I guess that’s all for today.
Hope you’ve got a wonderful week ahead of you!
