This cold is a bear…hanging on and on, and now Rich is getting sick, so I might just end up getting it a second time. That happens with us sometimes…I’ll get sick, then Rich will hold off getting it until I’m almost better, then a few days later, I feel bad again. It’s the curse of a low immune system….
Last night I started thinking in crafty terms again, which is good news. I’ve been following some gelli plate videos from Clarity Stamps and they approach gelli printing like a card. It’s not abstract blobs and weird objects that create unusual marks…it’s actual art. And I love it. I have to give it a try and I’m scared, because I don’t know if I have the skill set to pull it off.
In the meantime, I promised the photo I took of woody woodpecker. Rich posted it with some of his photos on his facebook page, so I can copy and paste it here.
He would be a lot clearer if I wasn’t taking the photo through a screen. I loved how bright his head and eye are….If you saw how many photos I took, you’d laugh. I laid Rich’s camera on a book beside me and just held down the button and it just kept snapping away…
Rebecca Walton, from Rubber Stamp Tapestry (the peg stamp company) and I will be doing a collaboration using a bird picture I found at a second hand store as our inspiration. Here’s the picture of it.
We both loved that the bird is a bunch of tiny images put together to create it….and started thinking about how perfectly this concept would work with peg stamps. We also found a stencil at StencilRevolution.com that we thought would be perfect for this project. So now you have an idea of what we are starting with, and hopefully this Friday, the 15th, both videos will go live. I haven’t started mine yet, but my plan is to give it a whirl tomorrow….I thought this stencil would be perfect for the way we plan on putting our cards together…..and hope you’ll consider buying one as well, and playing along…I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.
