Yahoo! It is Friday. I've had a crazy busy week and am really ready for the weekend!
I showed you this page awhile back. I did a bunch of stenciling and spray painting and then didn't know how to finish off the page.
This past weekend I did some magazine cutting and some die cutting and finished it off in a rather silly way.
Been trying to push the envelope a bit lately. Try new things. Do something I wouldn't usually do.
I think page is a good example of that for me.
But I must admit it is really fun to push that envelope. Trying new color combinations. New layerings of stencils. Saying what the heck and just trying it.
I also like the double take view on this page. By flipping the stencil and having slightly different base painting I got 2 different views.
Something good to know about this stencil...and true for other stencils that are similar.
And pulling out a very old stamp from Postmodern Design was fun. If you've been stamping awhile, remember all the great quotes you used to be able to buy? Wordsworth? Postmodern Design? Even Penny Black used to have all those big and awesome quotes. I love quote stamps, but now a days you just can't find them the same way. There's a lot of great card quote stamps, but not so many big quotes-just plain quotes, There's still some, Oh well, trends came and go and probably better for me because it takes away the temptation to buy them.
So any plans for the weekend? I'm going to hockey game tomorrow night and hopefully having some relaxing down time the rest of the weekend. Ready to play and sleep in and just not have to function on a schedule. Between my busy week and the colder and even a bit snowy weather this past week, my brain is telling me its time to hibernate, but I am not ready (or able) to do that yet.
Glad you stopped by and wishing you a great weekend!
