It's my day off work today WOOP WOOP! And so I was just browsing the internet (as you do) when I came across this tutorial by Dina Wakley. I have to say I was DEEPLY disappointed to miss Dina when she was in the UK recently but unfortunately as a teacher I can't pick and choose my days off work. She has to come back, she has to!
Anyway, this is a fab little tutorial on how to create a background using spray inks by Ranger so I just had to have a go. Here's my full page. It's a bit clumsy but you have to experiment with new things right? I added a label off a fleece top I got recently by North Face. I'm not exactly your mountaineering type, but I took the 'never stop exploring' motto to mean never stop exploring anything ie: art. But I'm wearing my North Face fleece as I'm doing it so that's ok :-) I'm sure that's what North Face intended it for too.
I haven't quite mastered the 'white' parts on the page as Dina so often refers to. I seem to have an urge to get as much colour on the page as possible but I'm working on it.
This is the scrap of card I started experimenting first on today. Yummy colours :-) I haven't thought what I'm going to do with it yet......... I might cut it up and make ATCs with it.
Thanks for all your comments on my last post. I'm very encouraged by the fact that you all seem to rummage in the freezer for unidentified remains LOL! Seems like there are a lot of different names for 'freezer surprise':
Pot luck (Terri), Freezer Tea (Jude), Cold box - hot box (tracy) and concoction (faerielore) HA HA HA HA! Think I'll just ring my husband and ask him if he wants concoction for tea! You're all as bad as me :-)))
