Getting Inky

Hello?!!  Anyone still out there?!!

Yes, once again life has gotten in the way of crafting.  BUT!! I have some good news: I have been getting ink and paint all over my fingers today.

Of course, there is a slight downside to that:  this idea is not one that can be finished in a day. 

Or two days. 

Let's cross our fingers it doesn't go into next week. 

 I'm trying to let the creativity decide where this goes and when it is "finished".  Well, sort of.  It is for an upcoming blog hop with the E-Team.  But this is an idea that I have had brewing in my noggin' for a while.  It just took a little shove to get me started.

I'm liking it so far.  Paint. Metal, alcohol inks.  VerDay (more on that later).  Yep.  It's a new mixed media journey that I'm excited to start exploring.

 I'll share a little sneak peak with you.

Did I mention that I'm making a mess too?!! 

Stay tuned.  There is more to come soon!!

Beautiful flowers, Starla, I guess I am going to have to die cut some of the metal I have had for years and years...yeah I know why have I waited? Glad to see you had time to play. Can't wait to see what you are making! Have a wonderful Sunday!

The suspense is killing me.... I always love your art, can't wait to see what you are up to :). Like you life has been crazy around my house, but wanted to stop by and say HI! ;)


Very interesting!

Ah, making messes - the fun part of life. Now, if we only had some little elves to clean up after us.
