When I took these photos the sun was shining on my desk and I had to close the blinds to get a half-decent shot, hence the muted colours. Getting back to normal now after Christmas and spent a lovely afternoon Tuesday crafting, which is a change over the last few weeks when nothing much got done.
Have almost finished the iPad case I'm making. This is a super project devised and video'd by Laura Dennison of Follow The Paper Trail, it as easy to follow and I love how it turned out. All I need now are some Graphic 45 drawer pulls to hold in the tablet and then it is finished. More pictures below if you want a peek at how it stands.
Out for lunch Monday to a garden centre that also (surprise, surprise) had a craft shop so I went on a mini-spend on Monday (that's when you pay with 'proper' money and leave the plastic at home). Bought a couple of bottles of acrylic paint and the two stamp plates at the top, one a Stampers Anonymous re-issue and the other (words) by Lindsay Mason Designs (new to me but some great journalling phrases). Speaking of journals, there are the paints in the page, I have no will power and opened the bottles as soon as I got home, mixed them up, splodged them on, splashed with water and dried with paper-towels. Saw this done on Creative Jump Start and I never thought to splash water to remove acrylic before - it works very well.
Can you believe that I bought some more paintbrushes as well - have put out all my old ones to show you just how many I have. Think I'm getting like Julia with all her scissors.
Enough for today, here is a closer look at the painted journal pages and the iPad case.
Hope to get round more desks this week so see you on the tour.
