Hi there everyone, can’t believe it’s nearly Feb, not ready!
The first Rudolph Day of 2020, at Scrappy Mo’s from 25th to 31st Jan. 'Cos it’s Wednesday, time too for WOYWW or What is on Your Workdesk Wednesday at Julia’s Stamping Ground.
“If you’re not happy, it’s not finished!!”
Good WOYWW motto that.
photo paper is (see Here - Edit: BTW it won top 3 at Word ArtWednesday last week which means I'm not the only one who liked it!).
Wasn't keen this on plain gloss card once started colouring. So decided to layer on more brusho. Dab off with tissue anything you dont like.
I know Shaz Silverwolf is our Chief Enabler!
Etsy link is here, with FREE post! Bought this sample pack. Sizes were cheaper than CraftOnline.au. Has quick post too, apparently.
Birthday coming up, have ordered glass mat!
Everyone gave thumbs up when I asked 3 weeks ago. Was blessed, suddenly $7 cheaper when checked CraftOnline, grabbed it before they changed their mind again. 😊
Tonic 12” x12” (really 13 x13), best for budget + use, 1/3 price of Tonic TH mat, couldn’t justify it.
Size good, I use inches mostly which it is.
Bought last night a set of Gansai Tambi watercolour! Hooray! They’re apparently more opaque than regular artist watercolour. Gouache is opaque watercolour, I do hope they will be similar. Probably why they’re described as creamier. I use gouache in ornamental calligraphy, bugs me how tubes dry out. Blown budget now, on buying ban for while, can’t even use “I need tape” excuse!
Now to my Christmas cards, reminded myself of design years ago, so made 4 more.
Kaisercraft Star multi cut, the bauble 5 x 7” EF is from CB Winter wonderland set. Used digi Christmas greetings already ready printed, and made four. Now have 16 Christmas cards done, wanted 24 by now, but birthday card time now, will do in Feb.
Now to Aussie shots, from visit to Kiama, south coast in late Oct.
Herbe, common name here, Veronica, I love it.
Kiama is a seaside town. Sadly bad fires on south coast, Blue & Snowy Mountains, so still need rain and prayer.
Well, I’m a really really bad blogger ☹️ cos it is summer here, busy last week full of appointments and visiting or visitors last few days, I’ve missed putting out many comments again. A struggle at night, not been 100%, just one of my chronic conditions making noises.
So am VERY, very sorry!
Answer TO DIANA: I’ve not a problem at all with messiness with Brushos. I’ve tiny holes in top of them, sealed with a pin in them. So sprinkle is controlled.
Use junk mail in large size sheets and make the mess on the paper, which absorbs excess colour and water, pick it up junk mail holus-bolus and bin it in greenwaste bin as can put rolled up veggie scraps in there.
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x
Thought of the Day:
27th Jan 2020.
75th Anniversary of Liberation of Auschwitz.
"When Soviet soldiers poured into Auschwitz in January 1945, they encountered warehouses filled with massive quantities of other people’s belongings. Most people who owned them were already dead, murdered by the Nazis in the Holocaust’s largest extermination & concentration camp.
.. the camps that made up Auschwitz seemed silent and abandoned at first, soldiers soon realized they were filled with people—thousands of them, left to die by SS guards who evacuated the camps after trying to cover up their crimes.
The emaciated prisoners hugged, kissed and cried. “They rushed toward us shouting, fell on their knees, kissed the flaps of our overcoats, and threw their arms around our legs,” remembered Georgii Elisavetskii, one of the first Red Army soldiers to step into Auschwitz. After five years of hell, Auschwitz was liberated at last."
God gave you and I a free will
He did not make robots, but He made a perfect world which we have in sin corrupted. So very sad things happen.
The shortest verse in the Bible shows how our sin just doesn't hurt us, others but God too. Let us never forget these things.
