I think the hardest thing about keeping a blog is the title. I have given up worrying about punctuation and whether I make any sense at all, I just write what comes into my head and let spell check do the rest.
Yesterday was another beautiful sunny day from very early in the morning. and I remembered I had a packet of Nature Print paper hiding in a box somewhere. So before i showered and dressed I was out in the garden collecting willow leaves.
I attached a sheet of paper to a cardboard box with pins
The willow leaves were placed on top and I left it for 5 mins until it turned pale blue. then the paper was placed in a dish of water for 1 min and allowed to dry.
And this was the result it will be going into the journal which Trine sent me.
I packaged up all but 5 of the bluebird swaps today and they have been dispatched from the Post Office . So 19 flocks are flying off around the world I do hope they make it to their new homes. I did forget to photograph them all together , but they have all been posted on my past blogs.
I also found time to make 2 tags this morning.
And this afternoon a phone call to my Mother found her very confused and I quickly (15 mins. ) made a small notebook/journal to help her remember things. I put her initial on the front J for Joy and added a bell so that if she mislaid it it might help her trace it. And another trip to the Post office ,I hope she gets it tomorrow.
This was a Sizzix BIGZ XL die and Sizzix alphabet die. Coloured with altered originals ink and Tim Holtz distress ink pad. It is quite a big die and measures about 5” across.
