This is a pic of Jarred when he was home last at Christmas time - just how I like to picture him ;-)
....must take more photo's of Cort!!!
Didn't get much of a chance to play on the weekend as it was a major housework day on Sunday but I did get my soldering gun out and had a go with it, all by myself this time!!!! It took me just as much time to get the blasted little jump ring attached as it did to solder the rest of the whole thing......stupid jump rings! This first one I liked the lumpy bumpy effect of the soldering and thought for the 2nd one I'd do it smooth.....think I was right the first time, I'm a lumpy kinda gal so will be going with that look in future!
Yep.....definitely like the lumpy look much more than this smooth effect. Love both of these pictures!
At the last Tuesday night atc class I taught we did texture paste which the girls did really well with. When I did the Saturday class on texture paste a while ago we didn't have in the store the wonderful metallic Folkart paints, so we were using the normal Jo Sonja paints, which are fine, but I'm used to using my Lumiere's for Texture paste as their shimmer and shine works perfectly with the texture. So luckily the Tuesday night girls had a play with these metallic paints as e stock them now and they were suitably impressed by how they looked. This is my atc that I made up on the night as a sample.Looking forward to a weekend away in a couple of weeks time down at Margaret River with my hubby and then in 8 weeks time........STAMP CAMP!!!! Woo-hoo!!!!! Can hardly wait.....last year we played until the wee hours of the mornings and were surprised one morning when we came in and the girls who'd stayed up until nearly dawn, had passed the time by applying alcohol inks to their EMPTY shooter glasses!!! They looked fantastic and I promised myself to take more pictures of these ordinary little things this year...though they didn't look ordinary....extra-ordinary! ! ! lol .....as were the headaches....hahahaha
