And today i ordered more dies so watch this space tomorrow.
This week i also created 4 house ATCs for a swap on milliande.com these have been sent off to sunny California today.
They look so dark in the photo but are a bit brighter in the flesh. They were actually quite fiddly to do.I used a clip art picture of a house which i adjusted the size and printed on to tissue not as easy as it sounds. I sprayed a sheet of A4 card with a reposition able glue and stuck the tissue to it. this was so i could put it through the printer. the houses were then applied to the ATC. I then did the same with a photo i had taken of the sunset over the village. Lastly i used a photo of an oak tree in my field and altered it with PICNIK and then printed it on to acetate this was then cut out and attached with foam pads.
I have also got ahead of my self and done the journal pages for Nina's swap and this evening i have started to make bookmarks for another swap.
Earlier this week when i was just wasting time playing with PICNIK i decided to alter a picture of myself.
|original with turkey neck dark circles and lines|
|neck and skin smoothed out|
|and then i added pink hair|
|snowdrops in the ditch|
|one lone crocus flower by the pavement|
|a small group of daffodils on the sea wall|
I am just going to add photos of signs of spring i saw today while walking Wilson they are not good photos but i feel as if i want to keep a record.
And lastly going back to my original statement about feeling low well i know one of my problems is the fact that i am putting on weight. I know that as i come up to 58 it is harder to keep the weight off but i am finding it impossible. OK I know in my last blog posting i had photos of pizza and eclairs but if i know i will be eating fatty things i cut down during the day. So yes i feel very shallow when i say it is getting me down after all if all i have to worry about is a little weight gain i am a very fortunate woman. which of course i am.
