It turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself. As you may have heard me say, I like to do arts and crafts while I watch tv. Here is a shot of a work in progress. I haven't done any ATC's for a while, so I thought I would work on backgrounds while I lounged on the sofa.
I am using a pad of hot pressed, 140 pound watercolor paper, sized 7" x 10". I should be able to get several ATC's out of a sheet this size and still have lots of pieces left over for collage or mixed media pieces. Hmmm...maybe some inchies. We'll see.
An interesting tool I am using here is a water color brush that has a tube for holding water. Some of you may be familiar with this little guy, but it was new to me. I just happened to find it the other day in my supplies. It seems just the thing for watercolor pencils.
You gently squeeze the barrel and it delivers a pre-measured amount of water to the brush. It seems to be a good idea to stroke the brush over a paper towel between colors, but other than that I have not had any problems with this brush.
Well, that's what I am working on today. Hope you are having fun. What with family members starting to arrive and turkeys thawing in the dryer, there is a lot to be done this week. I had thought we might eat out Thursday, but we decided to do a quick little Thanksgiving style dinner here at home. So we hit our favorite Krogers for some last minute supplies.
That's where we were when the cashier started almost drooling over my hubby. While checking out, I had mentioned that we had changed our minds about going out for dinner. She said something to the effect of, "if I had a good looking man like that at my house, I would grab and cook something frozen and spend as much time as possible just with him !" She, then was able to regroup and say something like "you look really nice, too". Yep, he's still got it, after all these years. He is living proof that you certainly don't have to be that young to make the ladies throw back their shoulders, flip their hair and take notice. It was actually pretty cute. I tell him all the times that ladies are checking him out, but he never knows it. I think even he noticed this time.
Well, that's all for now. I'll be back soon with more goodies, but I'm not sure just what kind. Have a good evening and don't stress yourself out over all the festivities, they will be over soon enough.
Edit: In addition to doing all the holiday related things that we love, I am going to be working on my computer. I realized that I am trying to keep up with six personal sites. It is time for me to scale down some. I will be dropping off from following several of your blogs and I will be adding some new blogs to my sidebar. Please don't be offended if, in my attempt to regain control of my computer time, I have to leave you for a while. It certainly isn't personal. Thanks, I knew you would understand.
