Snowed in

 This was last weeks snow, the girls are not amused.

I can't even find her in there! John took these for me because I wouldn't even step outside.
I did do a little jump over to Cargo Largo for some great stuff!  I needed a skinny ring to wear between my fabulous diamonds! I stacked them up because one is too big and the other holds it on and now they rest nicely on my finger.

So, then...I found this great prasiolite (manmade) triangle and beautiful fresh water pearl. Gawd. I can say that it was a planned purchase and I got all the rings for the price of one. Looks like a more extravagant haul than it really is, which is my favorite way to shop. The mirrors are great and I bought two bare mineral lip gloss for 7 bucks a piece. I really love love love Cargo Largo. Did I mention that I finally got old enough for SS and enjoying having my own money to shop with. Forgot to take a picture of the two 18x18 gesso board canvas. Great buy there also and wish I would have bought them all. Can't wait to do some collages on them.  

I cut three more pair of flannel pants out but needed to take a break because of the pain. Hurts just to move when your finally old enough for social security.

flannel pants

Stayed up all night last night working on these pants then got up at noon started working again and just now at 10pm have them done.

Boy oh boy.

I did make a new pattern (third one) and much happier with the fit. Although, see that cool cuff...they are that much too long. Ha. At least they are not TOO SHORT!

I consider any project that isn't worn out when I'm done a success. Needless to say, the seam ripper is my best friend when sewing.

distress oxide texture

Created all this texture just by using a little spray bottle of water and my gelli plate tools, I really enjoy working with these new inks.

The blueprint sketch reminds me of mimeographs. Remember before teachers had copy machines? I always enjoyed the color but most the time they looked so washed out and faded it was depressing.  Yes I am that old.

Lucky this color is so rich and beautiful it just makes you happy.

Zentangle cards

Had some relaxation today doing some Zentangle reference cards. Tried to make sure the original artists names are visible. The card blanks are leftover from the floral tarot by mic. 

I already feel the fresh energy of the new year and look forward to it.

Tuesday Morning Haul

I found the Tim Holtz stamp thingy for only 12 bucks. The card blanks were very cheap for great card stock. My cousin gave me the paste and pearl ex. I need to watch a video to figure out how to do it. It all looks so marvelous and easy at the shows.

I can't stop eating the candy.

I'm tempted to redo the orange cards but trying to let it go. I like the new line up in the first picture.
