Here is my most recent card - hanging out being all cute and stuff. (You can see better shots of it in the previous post if you want AND you could do the sketch challenge and WIN FREE STAMPS! Just say'n.) You can also see some of my other recent activity, such as that bottle of gesso sitting nicely on my desk...yes, that leads me to the next photo...the gesso 'incident.'
You see, I've had a project in my head for awhile now and I just haven't taken that first step of preparing a canvas for it, so I finally went ahead and did that last night. I covered a sheet of cardboard with gesso with some nice texture and set it out to dry so I could continue my project over this week. Then, The Hubbums asked if I had a clipboard he could use for a size comparison. No problem! I have clipboards! I reached down and picked one up off the floor beside my scrap paper file, as that is where I've kept them for a bit. It had a bit of dog hair stuck to it because Maggie has been lying right next to them this week. Not a problem...we are quite used to puppy hair in our house! I happily go back to what I was doing and The Hubbums says to me, "Wifee! This clipboard had paint on it!" He wasn't upset, just concerned that he would get it on something. I was alarmed by this, as I knew that the clipboard had not had contact with paint of any kind in the little spot by the scrap bin. And that is when I saw what had happened. The Hubbums had set it down for just a brief moment ON my gesso covered cardboard. Ooopsies!!! He felt SO bad! I laughed. It was an easy mistake to make in that mess! It just bloody well figures, 'cause now I have to paint another one! LOL! Oh, well.
In other news, I got some fresh rubber from ScrollsWork along with some fresh ink and I'm super excited to play with it all! I've already used the inks and I LOVE them!!!!
AND...finally, I just HAD to share my glittered pumpkins with you all because I know you will get excited about them with me. The Hubbums tried, but apparently glitter just doesn't do it for him like it does for us? HA!
Yup. I totally went all Martha Stewart on those suckers! AND BOY are they CUTE!!!! Love!
