The day started out rainy, but now it's beautiful!!!!!! Blue skies and sunshine.
I had painted this small magnetic closure box from Bare Elements-Chris with Twinkling H2o's- Sunflower and Burnt Umber. I let it sit, and could not decide what to do with it.
Yesterday I got out the Ten Seconds Studio molds..Big Daddy 5 and 8. LOVE these. The Bingo numbers on the sides are so fun!
The Slate metal is cool when you want something vintage Tin-Type looking. I was going for Old and Worn here. It's really a blue-grey color. It seems to change with the angle of the light. Closeup shot shows more light when viewed from the top.
I embossed, then sanded and Alcohol inked like crazy to get the really worn look. Used Rust and Sandal with a pinch of Raisin and Lettuce.
The inks really make this color of metal stand out. Then I used the Melody line of papers from Creative Imaginations on the inside, and added little round wooden feet to the bottom.
I met Deb on her way to work and gave her this little token for her birthday!!!!
Happy Birthday Deb....April 3rd is the day.
And guess what she brought me for my birthday....ta da! This fabulous acrylic paint caddy!!!!!!!!!!! Is it cool or what? It came in a million little pieces and her wonderful husband, Gary, put it together for me!!! THANK YOU GARY.....
Bill would have done it, but he thanks you, too!!! REALLY.
So, moving day is Wednesday. Hoping for good weather and no whammies!
Enjoy the day!
