It is not that I am panicking or anything like that but it is only 10 days until I leave for USA to go to Ranger U (Wooooooooooot!). I have had so much to do ... booking flights, applying for a visa, searching for a hotel, buying new shoes (!!) Still, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
On top of that I have several deadlines to meet before I go, while I am away, and as soon as I get back, YIKES!! I have been a very busy bee indeed. Today I have been playing with Dylusions, getting ready for my workshop at Art from the Heart on creating inky tags and cards next week, which all things considered isn't a bad way to spend an afternoon ;-)
Got challenges to prepare for, a magazine article to write, and classes to prepare for when I get back from USA (don't want the challenge of preparing for a class while jet lagged!) When life gets this busy, there's only one thing for it.
I saw this green / black combo on Ellen's blog here and really liked it. I used Fresh Lime with a touch of Black Marble. It's amazing what the touch of black does. It isn't my usual colour choice but I'm loving it. I also used Tim's technique of embossing over Distress ink for a splash of colour. LOVE this! And added medium bee stamp by Jo Capper Sandon for Stampotique, and one of Dyan's famous quotes.
I managed to squeeeeze in a little time to have a play with a couple of Tim's techniques. Oooh, I like stamping with picket fence distress stain :-)
I have been working in my art journal a little, but this project is under wraps until next week...... here's a couple of sneak peeks:
Right, I'm off. Still got a lot of things to prepare and get ready, including deciding what to pack to wear in New York!
Byee for now.
