Odds and ends
I have had a bit of playing time, between breaks for my aching back.
Dale with her product of the Month sent out a small art mould, the P and a few instructions on how to use it, I thought I had one of those somewhere, this intricate little fish, I think I have another p too but I cant find that, any way, one of the suggestions was to use utee (ultra thick embossing enamel), and I had some in my little pan ready to heat up and these little plaques are what I have made. What fun.
I have also just got another couple of the easy carve printing blocks, not quite as big or thick as my last one but I thought I would have a go at doing a butterfly, or maybe it is a moth, any way the first, is the last one! I used a stamp pad for this one and obviously didnt rub it all over, on the others the first on the left was the first one I did using acrylic paint, then I cut away more on the second one, and then as you can see I cut all the background away in the stamped one.
I have also cut out another out of cardboard to use on a gelatin plate when I make another one.
Lots of ideas wizzing around in my head.
Not a good day yesterday, tiring and my back killing me by the time I had driven home. Still not good today. My mother was sitting with her eyes shut the whole time I was there talking, about what? I have no idea, although she seemed happy enough.
Today every time I think I will go for a walk it drizzles. Perhaps tomorrow.
