What a waste of a weekend this long weekend has been for me! Too darn hot to even think about doing some arty stuff in my studio....even though it IS air-conditioned! I think my brain must've been over-heating as I had hardly any inclination to do anything....well, maybe not nothing at all as I did do a few atc's and finished my first pages for the chunky swap for tonight. Our first theme is Text and here's my page....had to do 9 of these.....the picture of the girls is printed on transparency...background is multiple layers of text pages, paint and stamping, and there is a beautiful blue/silver shot-organza ribbon attached to the spiral on the right that you can't see in this picture.
Jarred (oldest son) left yesterday morning to fly back to the east coast of Australia where he lives after his few weeks home over the Christmas break. He hooked up with a girl that he used to know in high school while he was here this time....all very intense as early romance is, but she's a nice girl and they seemed to be getting along really well and making some noises about her flying over to visit him at Easter maybe. This picture was taken when he was over here last July for a combined party for Jarred's 21st and Cort's 18th which were both last year....oh, plus it was our 25th wedding anniversary and my hubby's 50th birthday! Talk about a milestone year!!!
Seem to be going through a "dark" period at the moment, maybe it's how oppressive this hot weather is??? Don't know but here's the atc's I did this weekend....
This next one is a test version for a gel medium transfer using Chromacryl impasto gel medium...wanted to see if it would work the same as the Matisse gloss gel medium, it does!
